Subversion (SVN) Source-Control for PowerShell Scripts

I’ve already blogged about the use of PowerGUI Pro Script Editor with Team Foundation Server (TFS), now it’s time to check out integration with another popular source control solution – Subversion.

As with any other revision control system, to integrate PowerGUI needs you to install an MSSCCI provider for the system (this is the API which Microsoft Visual Studio is using). For Subversion there is a bunch of clients available – so use whichever you like as long as MSSCCI is one of its features.

For this post I used TamTam SVN SCC. It seems to be a great client however you would need to pay the author $14.99 unless you enjoy seeing their “Buy now” prompts every few minutes. 😉

(If you really want to save the $14.99 there is also a free SCC client for Subversion: TortoiseSVN – however, you would have to spend a few minutes to make it work because the SCC provider is only supported by a fairly old version of the client – 1.3.5. If you want to go that route, download version 1.3.5 of the client here, and install it along with the TortoiseSVNSCC provider found in Documents & Files section here. You might also have to apply some registry keys on Vista and later.)

Anyway, I went the easy way:

1. Downloaded and installed Subversion v1.4.3 and TamTam SVN SCC .

2. In PowerGUI Pro Script Editor, went to Tools / Options / Version Control, selected TamTam as the Current provider and browsed to the svn.exe file.

3. Now I can add files to Subversion, check out, check in, and so on by using the Version Control menu in the editor:
