Setting up eclipse on a mac to work with SVN

this post will show you how to setup eclipse on your mac to work with a local [or remote] SVN repository

  • install eclipse
  • goto help > install new software
  • select ‘use all available sources’
  • search for ‘SVN’
  • under ‘collaboration’ click Subversive SVN team provider (incubation)
  • click next, install, restart eclipse when it asks
  • goto eclipse > preferences > team> SVN
  • when the popup asks, install one of the connectors [i went for SVNKit]
  • done!

you can now open an SVN repository browser perspective and put in all the details for your SVN repository
SVN actions (checkout, commit, tag, etc are in the team menu [right click on the checked out folder > team > commit, etc])
