347 - Repository browser

It would be nice to have a repository browser to allow a fish-like visualization of a project's source repository.

Fish itself for git/hg may be too ambitious (or has that been done?), but a viewcvs-like interface would be more than enough.

    I think that rather than a repository browser for 3 version control systems - you could implement a zip file browser. It would be trivial to implement this way.

    You could build on that functionality. Since the version is already put into the addon's toc by the packager, you could very easily get the source file which matches a given debugstack.

    Also - browsing the zip would show you the source after it has been pre-proceesed, another plus.

    oh, we've been using pygments for small things around the site for a while. We actually use several librarys by the guys over at & Adminstrator

    I only support this idea if the solution is good. I HATE VIEWCVS AND VIEWVC THOUGH!

    Well that's the point isn't it. Fish allows you to view the _history_, which is painful with SVN in any case because it requires extra round-trips to the server. OTOH in Git/Hg you just clone and explore the history locally.

    I'm all for Fish/SVN, I'm just saying I can live without it for Git/Hg.

    Doing single checkouts of SVN is fast as well. git may be fast, but a single checkout of SVN doesn't take long unless the project is huge. If the project is huge, git would take just as long anyway (though it would get more done).

    The point is to avoid having to checkout at all so one can easily browse when required.

    Git (and probably Hg) hardly needs this because cloning the repo for local browsing is extremely fast. +1 for SVN though
