SVN Notifier

Track your Subversion working copy against a repository from your Dashboard

Version control is essential for collaborative development, and we do a lot of collaborative development at Arc90, so we rely heavily on our Subversion repositories. One of the things we've noticed is that it's hard for developers to keep up with their repositories' and working copies' statuses: Is my copy out of date? Has someone committed something to the repository?

So we wrote a Dashboard widget that monitors working copies and repositories to make sure that it's always clear what's what. And we threw in Growl support to make the package extra appealing. It's a great way to keep tabs on your development efforts.

This seems to be the problem: If you are using a non-Apple binary of Subversion (i.e. if you are not using Leopard yet), this widget may have trouble finding your binary. I was able to get it to work by manually editing SVN Notifier.js in the package contents.

The problems I'm having may stem from the fact that I'm using Tiger, while the developers are using Leopard. The most recent update was supposed to fix a bug that prevented it from working in Tiger, but it may not have been totally fixed. I'm trying to help them figure it out. If you run Leopard, though, you should have no problems at all.

While I like the look of this widget, I'm still having trouble getting it to work. When I plug in the path to my working copy, nothing changes--I still get blank fields on the widget. If I figure out what I'm doing wrong, I'll follow up here.
