SVN4DW - Hard to Find SVN Extension for Dreamweaver


I've been using this extension for a while and it's pretty handy for updating/committing code from/to your SVN repository. I tried to find it on the net tonight so I can install it at home but it seems to have vanished. So I looked through my work PC and there it was. Awesome! For those folks that like to use it, I've put it up on my personal site. The link is http://tech-cats.net/blog/downloads/SVN4DW.zip

  2. Hi Boyan,

    I've just tried to install this extension in DW CS3, and it says it's not compatible...
    Can you explain how you did it? Thanks.

  3. Sorry for the delay. There is really not much to installing it. I un-installed the version I had installed just to test it, downloaded the one that I have posted here, double-click the file, it opens in the extension manager and it says it's installed successfully. I am using Dreamweaver CS3 ( version 9 build 3481). Maybe the exact version/build of Dreamweaver matters but that's the only thing I can think of. The version of the extension manager I have is 1.8.169 if that helps any.

  5. Hey guys this plugin looks promising but when I install it it says it can't find TSVN (even though I have tourtoise installed). Do I have to do something special to my sites?

  6. @Chris - you need to have TortoiseSVN installed for the Dreamweaver extension to work. You can get it at http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads

  10. Doesn't work for me either I'm on DWCS3 on a a MAC and every time I try to right click on an item in the file list I get the error "While executing getDynamicContent in SVN4DW.htm, a JavaScript error occured."

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension several times

    Anyone else run into this?

    DW ver9 build 3481
    ExMan ver 1.8.169

  11. @pooch, never used it on the Mac but on the PC it requires you have TortoiseSVN installed. Not sure how that would work on the Mac.

  12. Great, the link in the About SVN4DW didn't work anymore and I got worried I wouldn't find it. But I did :)

    Also, it needs TortoiseSVN, which is not available for Macs, so that's probably why it doesn't work for you.

  13. Try https://sourceforge.net/projects/subweaver/ instead.

    Open source and freely available.

  14. Sorry, Subweaver is now hosted at http://code.google.com/p/subweaver/

  15. You can use as well SVN for Dreamweaver, http://www.grafxsoftware.com/product.php/SVN_for_Dreamweaver/135/

    They have for Mac and for Windows as well. We use it for Mac.

    Hope this help.

  17. Hey, Thank you for having this online. It is indeed hard to find, but Google just put this page on 4th position for the right search query.

    ReplyDelete
  18. No problem. Funny enough if you look for "SVN4DW" on Google, it's the top 1 result. And it's the most visited blog post I got, he he.

  19. i don't understand how this is supposed to work...instructions?

  20. It just adds another menu to Dreamweaver and let's you invoke Tortoise SVN from within that menu.

  21. There is also a guide to installing:

    SVN
    Tortoise SVN

    under

    Dreamweaver 8 (CS3)

  23. is there any SVN extension similar to this that works for CS5?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haven't used CS5 so I'm not sure if there is a similar extension for it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh I didn't know that there is an extension like this for DW. I will definitely use this extension with my DW
