Create SVN repositories using a standard folder structure

December 10, 2009 Leave a comment

This is shell script that you can use to create all of your repositories using the same standard folder structure. You need to replace the following variables for it to run:

  1. Replace [name] with the correct username of a user who will have permissions on the repository.
  2. Replace [password] with the correct password of the user
  3. Replace with the path to where your svn repositories are stored

call the script: ./scriptname reponame and it will create a new repository with the name reponame.

Here’s what the script does:

  1. The script creates the new repository folder
  2. It gives apache permissions on the folder. If you are not using apache, uncomment the line.
  3. If you are using an access file to provide fine-tuned directory permissions, you may want to uncomment the two lines that refer to access.txt. Those two lines add the new repo to the access file and gives the admin group rw permissions on the repository.
  4. It then goes and creates the standard folder structure, ie, trunk, branches adn tags folder.
svnadmin create $1;
chgrp -R apache $1;
chmod -R g+rw $1;
#echo "[$1:/]" >> access.txt
#echo "@admin = rw" >> access.txt
svn –username [name] –password [pass] mkdir ""$1"/trunk" -m "ADD: /trunk";
svn –username [name] –password [pass] mkdir ""$1"/branches" -m "ADD: /branches";
svn –username [name]—password [pass] mkdir ""$1"/tags" -m "ADD: /tags";

echo "------------------------------------------";
echo "Standard Repo Layout Created";
