How to Zip Up a Release From a hg Repository
Did you know
hg archive command can quickly zip up your project by given a revision or release name? This is very handy to package up a distribution and share with other who is refusing to use the same client.
I wrote a simple bash script to do this with couple extras. It will create a zip file with a nice basename so it’s easy for unzipping. It also auto generate and append the given revision or tag name into the RELEASE.txt file, so you know what’s been released.
Just add the following file into any root of your
hg based project’s
bin directory and it’s ready to use.
|NOTE||This script will not tag your repository. It assumed you already have tagged. It simply will package up a release into a nice little zip file.|
