This repository contains numerous customizations to the Mercurial version control tool.
Creating and Maintaining a Development Environment¶
In order to run tests for the extensions and hooks, you’ll need to create and activate an isolated environment.
From the root directory of a version-control-tools checkout:
$ ./create-environment hgdev
This will create a Python virtualenv in
venv/hgdev. Assuming all
goes well, it will print instructions on how to activate that
environment in your local shell and how to run tests.
If the command fails, a likely culprit is missing system package dependencies.
On Debian/Ubuntu based distros, install required system packages via:
$ apt-get install build-essential python-all-dev sqlite3
On RedHat/CentOS based distros:
$ yum install bzip2 gcc python-devel sqlite
./create-environment hgdev again. If that fails, this
documentation may need updated!
