The Mac OS X package installer for Subversion

First published on June 14, 2007

Subversion, being a rather techie product (version control mostly for programming code), can be a bit confusing to install if you’re not technically inclined. I installed it a few months ago on a Mac and then forgot how to do it when I had to install it again on a different Mac.

Well, Martin Ott provides easy installer packages for Subversion for Mac on his website (see the right sidebar). Download, double-click, and follow instructions in the easy GUI.

The only techie thing you *might* have to do is to type add something like “export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin” to the .profile file in your base user directory. This is so that you can type things like “svn co” instead of “/usr/local/bin/svn co”. And if you’re really not technically inclined, you can install something like SCPlugin for the Mac so that you don’t have to type the svn commands manually.
