A Python library for interfacing with Mercurial's CommandServer
1. Getting the source
The package includes a standard distutils setup.py, so should install with:
$ python setup.py install
Gentoo-users can just emerge dev-python/hglib.
4. Basic usage
First create an hglib client object:
import hglib client = hglib.open("/path/to/repo")
Now you can perform Mercurial commands with a Python interface:
commit = client.tip() print commit.author
It should be possible to use any version of python-hglib with all versions of Mercurial that support the command server protocol (Mercurial 1.9 or newer). Supported Python versions are 2.4-2.7 and Python 3.4.
6. Reporting bugs
This package is managed by the Mercurial project, so bugs can be reported to the main Mercurial BTS. Use the 'hglib' component of Mercurial in the component field.
7. Contributing code
Similarly, code contribution should (roughly) follow the guidelines from ContributingChanges. Please flag patches with 'hglib' (eg via patchbomb's --flag switch).
