Olive aims to be a full-featured graphical frontend for Bazaar.
The current frontend uses GTK and it's written in Python. Olive is originally developed by SzilveszterFarkas (started during Google Summer of Code 2006). The code consists of two main parts: a backend and a frontend. The backend code wraps up bzrlib in a well-documented, easy-to-use way. The frontend mainly depends on this codebase.
· Python (>= 2.4)
· GTK (>= 2.8)
· PyGTK (>= 2.8)
· Bazaar (>= 0.8.2)
You just need to run the bundled setup script like this:
# ./setup.py install
If you'd like to install to a different folder, you can:
$ ./setup.py install --root=/path/to/the/folder
Be sure to adjust the PATH values if you install to a custom location!
A desktop menu entry is shipped with the application, you'll find Olive in the Programming category.
What's New in This Release:
· Got rid of the backend code. (Jelmer Vernooij)
· Some cleanups.
· Directory listing much faster due to native bzrlib usage.
· bzrk used from bzr-gtk.
