I have installed SourceTree on Mountain Lion, once over the AppStore and once as direct download. The App always starts without any problems but I cannot get a connection to a svn server. I enter the Server URL and hit enter, and I just get the rotating waiting sign. I can check out the repository over git svn in the console and everything works.
I have already installed the Command Line Tools over Xcode and the py2.7-hgsubversion package with macports.
Any Idea why sourcetree still does not work?
Thanks a lot. Bernd
Unfortunately Mountain Lion removed both Subversion and the python bindings by default. I've created 2 KB articles (one for git-svn, one for hgsubversion) which worked for me from a clean Mountain Lion install:
It sounds like you may have already followed these instructions but I've included them for completeness.
If, after setting this up, you get the spinner, it's usually this: Perpetual spinner when trying to clone Subversion
Thanks for your help! I went through all the tutorials you posted. It's still not working, but I think i'm getting closer. Problem is still the same.
My standart python Version is 2.6, but I have 2.7 installed . Does Sourcetree call 2.7 explicitly or does it just call python?
Concerning the Hgsubversion bindings: As I said, I have already installed them with macports. I tried to install them with Homebrew again, but I get some arrows when Homebrew detects the macports installation. But it should also work with macports, if I changed the command to :
sudo sh -c 'echo /opt/local/lib/libpython2.7.dylib > /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/subversion.pth'
But I'm not sure about that part.
How can I checkout in python wether the bindings are installed?
Thanks a lot for your help.
SourceTree doesn't call Python itself, but the hg script does. Mercurial does still work with Python 2.6, because that's the default version on Mac OS X 10.6, but it's sub-optimal because the precompiled Mercurial is based on 2.7, so using 2.6 will require recompilation. Worse, any bindings you've installed for Python 2.7 won't be usable. Python 2.7 is the default version for Mac OS 10.7 and 10.8, so I assume you've changed this for some other reason. Is there any way you can revert to the system default Python in general, and just specify Python 2.6 when you need it?
If not, you'll probably need to install the Python 2.6 SVN bindings separately, which could get tricky if Macports is wanting to use the latest. I'm sure it's possible, but if you can avoid it it's probably better.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
