Using Subversion For An Entire Site?
I'm in the process of creating a stable development environment for my team of developers. Hence subversion. My question though, is more around a folder like '/images'. We've got a web designer tinkers with the site design. Now obviously the css file can be controlled, but what about image files??? I've setup SVN with dreamweaver, so on commit it updates a working directory of the site - hosted on the dev box by apache - so we can access and view our changes. Problem is, how does my designer add his images?? Straight into the working directory? But that would cause the working directory he's updating to be out of sync with the repository? Can anyone advise me on common practice here?
Your designer adds his images the same way anyone else would add any other type of file. Subversion doesn't care what your file is, it just slings the bits around. You will want to set your svn:mime-type & svn:needs-lock properties appropriately on those images though.
thAnks andy. Realistically, in a windows xp office, what application should he use to do that? Doing it through dreamweaver could get tiresome?
He can use any Subversion client - the one built into Dreamweaver, TortoiseSVN, or any other.
You reckon he just adds them to his local dreamweaver folder then checks them in? Also, you said I need to change some settings. Are these on the svn server or file specific settings?
