Tutorial :Command line to update SVN folders


I have tried several things so far, but I haven't had much luck yet. I'm attempting to have a command line or PowerShell script that I can run once a day to make sure my numerous checked-out projects are up to date.

I know I would be looping through the directory folders inside my workspace, but when setting the variables I haven't had any luck as it will error out. I am using TortoiseSVN, and Windows Vista.

Here is what I have so far:

echo == Initiating system instance variables...  echo. -- Setting the variables...    :: Here you need to make some changes to suit your system.  set SOURCE=C:\workspace\Project  set SVN=C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin  :: Unless you want to modify the script, this is enough.    echo. %SOURCE%  echo. %SVN%  echo. ++ Done setting variables.  echo.  echo == Updating source from SVN  echo. -- Running update...  "%SVN%\TortoiseProc.exe" /command:update /path:"%SOURCE%" /closeonend:2  echo. ++ Done.    echo. -- Cleaning up...  set SOURCE=  set SVN=  echo. ++ Done.    @echo off  


It might be easier in PowerShell:

Set-Alias tsvn 'C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseProc.exe'  dir C:\workspace | %{ tsvn /command:update /path:"$($_.FullName)" /closeonend:2 }  

Or if you want to specify certain project directories:

cd C:\workspace  $projects = 'Proj 1','Proj 2','Proj 3'  $projects | %{ tsvn /command:update /path:"$_" /closeonend:2 }  

PowerShell scripts have a ps1 extension. You might also have to update the execution policy to allow scripts to run:

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned  


Just use the SVN command line itself:

pushd "%SOURCE%"  svn update  popd  

You can get the Subversion tools for Windows at http://subversion.tigris.org/getting.html#windows. Install them side by side with TortoiseSVN.
