Author: S├ębastien Pierre

Download site: http://www.ivy.fr/mercurial/easy/mercurial-easy-latest.tar.gz

Home page: http://www.ivy.fr/mercurial/easy

Works with: Mercurial 0.9.1, 0.9.3, 0.9.4, and not 0.9.5 (yet).

Overview

Easymerge is part of the Mercurial Easy and provides you with a command-line GUI when merging from Mercurial.

Easymerge makes it easy:

Easymerge supports various merge utilities, including gvimdiff, filemerge, meld, kdiff3.

You can see a screenshot of the interface here.

Configuration

Configure your .hgrc to enable the extension by adding following lines:

[extensions]
#           JUST POINT TO WHERE YOU UNPACKED THE MERCURIAL EASY EXTENSIONS
merge    = ~/Local/Mercurial-Easy/Sources/easyhg/easymerge.py

Usage Scenario

Start by doing this:

hg init repoa ; cd repoa
echo 'slkdanlksdnas' > foo.txt
hg add foo.txt ; hg commit

cd .. ; hg clone repoa repob ; cd repob
echo 'asdasdsaasd' >> foo.txt
hg commit

cd ../repoa
echo 'eortietrete' >> foo.txt
hg commit

hg pull ../repob  

You should now have

pulling from ../repob
searching for changes
adding changesets
adding manifests
adding file changes
added 1 changesets with 1 changes to 1 files (+1 heads)
abort: update spans branches, use 'hg merge' or 'hg update -C' to lose changes
warning: changegroup hook exited with status 255
(run 'hg heads' to see heads, 'hg merge' to merge)

you can do

hg merge

If you have easymerge installed, you'll have

merging foo.txt
Registering conflict
Conflict    0:foo.txt                                  [66% equivalent]
  base        foo.txt.base-r0
  current     foo.txt.current-r2
  other       foo.txt.other-r1

0 files updated, 1 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved
(branch merge, don't forget to commit)

and you can now type easymerge.py (to run the command line utility) and enjoy the nice interface that is captured here.
