I've just set up SourceTree and BitBucket (with Mercurial) so that I can track revisions of my personal scripts and libraries and access them from other machines on occasion. I'm concerned about forgetting to commit changes I make, so I'd like to set up a cron job (or actually, a launchd job, since I'm using a Mac) to check for uncommitted changes and alert me if there are any. I'm new to cloud source control, but I think what I want is to run the equivalent of "hg diff". My working copy will always be in the same place. I ran "Install command line tools" in SourceTree but as far as I can tell that only gave me a tool called stree that serves a different purpose. What should I do? Should I install regular command line Mercurial (looks like from http://mercurial.berkwood.com/) or will that installation fight with SourceTree?
You can choose which hg binaries you want to use in SourceTree preference which means you can use both binaries at the same time.
I used this (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/7486/cronnix) to run bash scripts. You could create your own scripts and check if there are any files that are not changed:
You can test out the various scenarios, grep the output and do something with it (http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/57412/how-can-i-trigger-a-notification-center-notification-from-an-applescript-or-shel)
Yes, you just need to be contextually specific. When you run any command from the terminal it uses your PATH as a reference. At the terminal, type "echo $PATH" and you'll see a load of output. Those are colon-separated paths which are used in order of appearance to find whatever it is you're calling from the terminal.
To call the SourceTree version in specific you'd have to specify the path explicitly, so "/path/to/the/hg/install/hg <command>".
Hope that helps
