Managing SVN via SlickEdit

Anyone that has used Svn (Subversion) for any length of time knows that it is a kick-ass source control system.  But what does drive some people away is the fact that to manage your files you either need to use the command line or download the TortoiseSVN client.

Now using the TortoiseSVN Client is a snap and to be honest is a great way to get started, but not having a SVN client that integrates into Visual Studio is a turn off to many people.  Well the good news is that SlickEdit tools has a nice plug-in that will allow you to connect to an mange your SVN repository. 

Setting up your IDE to use the plug-in is easy as pie, and I will show you below.

  1. Navigate to Tools -> Options -> SlickEdit -> Versioning Toolbox -> Source Control Providers.  Once there provide the path to your SVN.exe and set the active provider.
  2. Navigate to Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Plug-in Selection and set the current provider to be the SlickEdit CVS/SVN plug-in.
  3. Now you can use right click any file in your Solution Explorer and get the following menu.

Hope this helps and check out the other great tools that SlickEdit has for reviewing and maintaining your source control system.

Till next time,

I have to say TFS 2008 is a great improvement over TFS 2005, however I still prefer SVN when I get the chance.

VisualSVN also rocks for VS integration.  What's even better is that they give away for free VisualSVN Server, which makes managing your SVN Server a breeze.  It has a great MMC plugin that makes it feel like a first class part of Windows.  Even includes Active Directory integration.
