Svn+ssh+eclipse/radrails == :-(


#1

Anyone have any luck connecting to a subversion repository over ssh from
radrails or eclipse? I’ve tried every combination I can think of…
there
has to be a trick. Just when it seems it’s going to connect, I get the
following error: network data doesn’t match template, expected (, read ï¿¿

Hello,
I just put together a svn quick start guide for my customers that
covers this topic. You may download the pdf at:

We simply include the Subclipse plugin in the standalone version of
RadRails so any issues or solutions would be found in their context.
I connect using webdav and haven’t had any issues.

Recommendations:
This is small enough that it doesn’t need to be a PDF. Opening PDFs in
browsers is generally regarded as a PITA.

Some clarifications (underlined)…
Working with RadRails (radrails.org)
Setup your location.

  1. Click on Window, then select preferences
  2. Click on Team, then SVN
  3. Now change the SVN Interface to JavaSVN, then click ok
  4. Click on Window, open perspective, then other.
  5. Next, select SVN Repository Exploring, Click OK
  6. Click on the icon that says SVN+ in the SVN Repository tab in the
    left
    pane.
  7. For the url put:
    svn+ssh://yourdomain.com/home/userid/svn/railsapp/trunk
  8. Click Browse… to define the root url:
    svn+ssh://yourdomain.com/home/userid/svn/railsapp
  9. Now type in your ssh user id and password, click Finish, you may be
    asked
    for
    your password again at which time you have are given the option of
    saving
    this information for future use. Click OK.
    Checkout the project
  10. Right click on your location that now appears in the SVN Repository
    tab
    in the left pane and select checkout as project.

Hello,
I made it a PDF because I wrote it in word and I didn’t have time to
convert it to HTML. However, if you use Mac OS X, opening a PDF is
just as easy as opening a web page.

Anyway, thanks for adding the clarifications,

When I try and use svn+ssh:// instead of http:// subclipse will not let
me continue, it says it is an invalid url?
