SVN Revision search "plugin" for Firefox, Chrome & Opera

Post by gabrielilardi » Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:35 pm

Hi all,
Frequently I need to check for the changes made in a specific commit (revision), it's easier when you use a search plugin, and also faster than Tortoise so here are the instructions:

Firefox:
1) go to %programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins
2) create a file called ROS Svn Search.src (name up to you, .src extension mandatory)
3) paste there this:

Code: Select all

<search 
 name="Search SVN Rev"
 method="GET"
 action="http://svn.reactos.org/viewcvs/reactos?view=rev&revision={searchTerms}"
 queryCharset="utf-8"
> 
</search>
4) Save the file and restart Firefox, that's it.

A Picture is worth a thousand words:

Chrome by niski:
1) tool icon -> options
2) basics -> search engines -> manage button
3) then add
4) in the first two fields type svn and in the third

Code: Select all

http://svn.reactos.org/viewcvs/reactos?view=rev&revision=%s
5) then you'll be able to write svn nr_of_rev to open the page

Good idea, but calling this a plugin is an overkill. I was expecting a toolbar of some sort.

You are right, but this started for Firefox only and as you see from the directory where its stored, they call them "plug-in's", anyway I've quoted the plugin word to note that ;)

Another, just slightly less user-friendly way I use in Firefox (as I have Bugzilla in that quicksearch pane already :) ) is to create a bookmark with these properties:

Name: <anything you want>
Address: http://svn.reactos.org/svn/reactos?view=rev&revision=%s (including the "%s"!)
Tags: <anything you want>
Keywords: rev
Description: <anything you want>

Now you can write "rev 45813" into the address bar and the same website as Gabriel shows will open. You can of course change that keyword rev into revision or anything else, but I have more of these and tend to keep them short.

Nice, thanks! ;)
