Readme for darcs-2.14.4

[back to package description]

Darcs

Darcs is a distributed version control system written in Haskell.

Getting started

Compiling

The easiest way to build darcs is by using cabal-install version 3.2 or later. A plain

> cabal build

or

> cabal install

should work out of the box with any ghc version from 8.0 up to 8.10.

Run the test suite

It is currently not possible to run the full test suite from the source distribution that you get from hackage. Instead you need to be in a clone of the darcs source code repository. This is because the tests depend on an old version of shelly that was patched to work with newer ghc versions and bundled with Darcs. It is not part of the source distribution to avoid 'cabal install' also trying to install our patched version of shelly.

> cabal build --enable-tests
> cabal test --test-show-details=direct

Using

To clone a repository via HTTP and send patches by mail:

> darcs clone --lazy http://darcs.net
> # edit files...
> darcs add my_new_file
> darcs record -m "my changes"
> darcs send

To clone via SSH and push patches:

> darcs clone user@hub.darcs.net:user/repo
> # edit files...
> darcs add my_new_file
> darcs record -m "my changes"
> darcs push

To create a project and start working:

> darcs init my_project
> cd my_project
> # create and edit files...
> darcs add my_new_file
> darcs record -m "initial version"

Pull new patches from upstream:

> darcs pull

Concise and up-to-date documentation is available from darcs itself:

> darcs help # list all commands
> darcs help command # help for specific command
> darcs command --help # dito
