Sourcetree Git Svn

Sourcetree github

To celebrate the new year (admittedly a little belatedly), how about a new major version of SourceTree for Windows? We have a doozy for you to start off 2014.

Use SubGit to make a one-time conversion between the local SVN repository and a new local Git repository. Push the new Git repository to a new upstream repository hosting service. But if the SVN repository is still active, then you would need to use git svn, as described in this article, in order to do git svn fetch / git svn dcommit. This is a Servoy Tutorial on how to use Git, Git Flow, and Atlassian SourceTree (GUI for Git Flow) with Servoy. In this Servoy tutorial I present the Git Flow model that is working well for me on all my big projects. I also explain how to setup Git Flow with Servoy, and even include a video demonstrating how to do some basic branching.

git-svn support

You can now use SourceTree for Windows to interoperate with your old Subversion projects via git-svn. This works by letting you work with a Git repository locally, but you can interact with a remote SVN repository via clone, push, and pull, thereby combining the benefits of a fast and flexible local DVCS, while still collaborating effectively with your projects that are still running legacy repositories.

Command line interface

You can now call SourceTree.exe from wherever you installed it on the command line, and by default it will open up the nearest containing repository for your current directory. You can also specify a different path, and ask SourceTree to immediately navigate to certain views or run certain commands, like so:

The commands you can use are as follows:

Thanks to your response to our call for translators, SourceTree for Windows 1.4 now comes in six languages: English, Japanese, Chinese, French, German, and Russian. The latter three are not 100 percent complete yet, but the major elements are translated; If you’d like to help fill in the remaining blanks, please join in the translation effort!

Patch file support

You can now create and apply patches within SourceTree – You can work effectively with patches comprised of uncommitted working state, and with patches containing one or more complete commits. SourceTree gathers all the options for generating a patch into an easy interface, and does the work of recognizing the relative paths and strip options when you’re applying a patch so you don’t have to work it out manually.

You can find the patch features on the Actions menu, labelled Create Patch and Apply Patch.

Archive support

Would you like to export a full copy of your source without all the Git/Mercurial history and metadata, either at the current state or at some other point in history? Archive is the feature you need for that, available either on the main menu (Repository > Archive), or on the context menu against a commit in the log (right-click a commit and pick Archive).

Using Git Svn

We want to make SourceTree an even better product for you, and to do this we’d love your help in finding out how you use our product. In the latest version you’ll get a popup asking if it’s OK to gather some data about how you use the product. We want to emphasize that no personal data is taken whatsoever.

We also added a bunch of other smaller things, such as:

  • An optional spell checker in the commit dialog
  • The ability to bookmark open repositories which you opened with File > Open or via the command line
  • Configurable conversion of tabs to spaces in the diff view
  • Improved multi-monitor support
  • and more…

We hope you like the new version of SourceTree for Windows!

Sourcetree git svn fetch

We used to use Subversion (SVN) for all of our source control at work a few years ago. Then, we switched over to Git a while back. I had several old projects still stored in our SVN account at and I needed to migrate them to Git repos. A few of them were work projects that needed to be moved to Github. Others were personal projects that I wanted to store on BitBucket. I spent several hours combing through blog posts figuring this out, so I thought I’d make a “dummies” guide on how to do this for people like me who are not Git experts. For this conversion, you will need:

  • Sourcetree – a great, free Git GUI. Get it here
  • Git installed on the command line. Sourcetree has it’s own Git client, but we will need to do some command line stuff. Unfortunately, I can’t offer any tips on setting up Git. I did it several years ago and didn’t make any notes on it.
  • A mac. Sorry, but these instructions are for mac users. They will be very similar for PC users, but may need slight modification.

Once you have those things, here’s what you do:

  1. Create a folder on your machine where you will store your files during this process. I created one called “SVN_TO_GIT” on my desktop.
  2. Log in to your SVN account and find the SVN repo you want to convert. browse through the files and try to get a list of the user ids that have made commits. For example, in one of my work projects, I found the following user IDs:
  3. Create an authors.txt file to convert the old svn IDs to git emails. This is really simple. Just save a blank text file in the folder you created above as “authors.txt”. In this file, add a line for each of the user IDs you found in Step 2. These lines specify how to convert the SVN user IDs:

    **Note how you can actually re-map the project contributors. I could simply assign all SVN IDs to my email if I want.

  4. Create a subfolder in the SVN_TO_GIT folder you already created. This folder will hold the repo that you will convert, so name it something that makes sense. For this example, I will name mine “REPO_1”.
  5. Open Sourcetree and clone the SVN repo into the REPO_1 folder you created above. Clone it as if it was a Git repo, but enter the URL of the SVN repo. You will probably need to enter your user name and password for the SVN account here.
    Sourcetree will notice that it’s an SVN repo and ask you for some details on how to convert it:
    • Create local repository of type: Git
    • Convert from SVN revision: 1
    • Author map file: (browse to your authors.txt file)

    BTW, after you enter your SVN credentials, make sure that Sourcetree is still planning to save your cloned repo into the REPO_1 folder. Sourcetree has a quirk that sometimes changes this destination folder unexpectedly.

  6. Click “clone”
  7. If you get an error about “Can’t locate SVN/”, go here and follow the instructions to get everything hooked up correctly.
  8. Or… if you get a crazy error like this:
    • go to Sourcetree > Preferences.
    • click on the Git tab at the top.
    • near the bottom, change the Git version to “Use system Git”
    • locate the system Git executable file on your machine. You can do a search in finder for “git” and look for a file with that name – the icon will look like a terminal window.
    • that should fix the error
  9. Show the output and check for errors. If it clones successfully, you’re almost done! If not, you probably forgot a user in the authors.txt file. Scan the errors to see if it is bonking on a user id. Add the conversion to your authors.txt file and try again.
  10. Log in to Github, Bitbucket, or the Git account of your choice. Create a new repo. Be sure to specify whether this is a public or private repo. I did not add a readme, but it’s ok if you do.
  11. Copy the url for the new Github repo that you created (in my example:
  12. On your mac, open a terminal window
  13. cd (change directory) to the SVN_TO_GIT/REPO_1 folder that now contains your cloned repo.
  14. run the following commands:
  15. Alternative method if the previous steps didn’t work for you:
  16. After it finishes, log in to github and take a look at your awesome new git repo with all of its commit history. Pat yourself on the back for your awesomeness.
  17. Create a new folder on your local machine and clone the new github repo into it. This is the local folder you should work from. Don’t work from the SVN_TO_GIT/REPO_1 folder you created. You should be able to delete that now.
  18. You should remove the old SVN remote and any local references to it on your machine once you’re sure that everything has converted correctly.
