Flash Builder and SVN on Mac

March 24, 2010

I’m trying to setup SVN in Flash Builder 4  (production release, not beta) on a Mac (Snow Leopard).  Done it multiple times on PC’s, but the process is quite different on a Mac.  I tried following the Flash Magazine tutorial, but no luck.  I’m about ready to bail and go with SmartSVN.

If you have setup SVN with Flash Builder on a Mac and are willing to help out a new Mac user, please email me at theAlgorithmist[at]gmail[dot].com.  Thanks for your time!

    I got it installed in FB4 fine (previos drop though not the release)

    Feel free to give me a shout.

    Also worth taking a look at Versions (although it aint a replacement for subclipse) http://versionsapp.com/

      Thanks – I’m going to give it one more try this afternoon and if no luck, then it’s SmartSVN all the way for me – thanks for the other link as well.

    When it comes to subversion clients hands down now and forever Tortoise svn shall remain king, but sadly that is only on Windows… I looked around to find a decent client for Mac and well, Smart SVN is pretty much a poor mans Toroise svn, Versions is almost there, but not good enough considering it’s not free. The client I have been using and will most likely soon purchase is Syncro SVN http://www.syncrosvnclient.com/ although there are still a few features lacking that Tortoise svn has I think it works very well for what it is. But if all you do is work in the Eclipse IDE for all your coding id highly recommend Subclipse http://subclipse.tigris.org/ it integrates beautifully into Eclipse, although I am yet to test it with FB4…

      Apologies for the double post, but perhaps you can correct this in my previous post… I mean’t “rapid svn” is poor mans tortoise svn, smart svn okay 😛

    OK – you win the prize! That tutorial was *much* more helpful than the one on Flash Magazine. What was getting me was that I was installing the Subversion Revision Graph. That was where all the errors came from.

    Looks like it’s up and running now, although I’ve also installed SmartSVN as a backup 🙂

    thanks again.

    Try it: http://www.eclipse.org/subversive/

    After install, open the software updates and install svn connectors.

      Thanks much, but I now have subclipse installed with SmartSVN as a backup. Hopefully I can get back to work on Degrafa soon 🙂
