Code Spaces

A Fresh Cup had a news item about Code Spaces, an internet  code repository.  The current beta version is free.  I’m there!  This is exactly what I have been looking for!  It will give me the opportunity to start hosting source code control with Subversion, which is something I have wanted to try out. 

I downloaded the command line version of Subversion and started playing around with it.  It didn’t take me long to remember that there is a reason that GUI’s were invented, so pretty quickly I switched over to TortoiseSVN.  Easy to set up, easy to use, nicely documented.  So far, I have loaded up a couple of test projects.  I need to get a better understanding of their versioning system, but it all seems pretty straightforward.  When I get home, I’ll add my BuildIni project. 

My goals are to get experience with Subversion and to have a better way to share code between my home and work computers.  This is the perfect opportunity.  I’m very pleased!

Okay, now I remember why command line interfaces are important too, because I can see that I am going to want to write scripts for checking in and out.  But still, for viewing the big picture and understanding where things are going, the GUI version is great.
