Posting files versus SVN, a Request

Post by Dan Gilbert » Tue Nov 25, 2008 4:20 am

Hi everyone. First off, I want to thank all of you for your hard work translating Atlas! :D It's simply awesome.

I also want to encourage you all to use the SVN directly for translation updates. It makes things quite a bit smoother. The main issue is that since I don't speak any languages besides English, and I'm the one committing files that are posted here to the forum, it's difficult for me to check files for consistency, and at times the files aren't exactly synchronized and work is overwritten.

If you need a hand getting setup with the SVN system, please let me know and I'll be happy to help you. It's a pretty sweet system for this kind of thing!

Thanks again,

Dan

Hey Dan,

I am totally new to SVN. Have you got a favorite tool for it? Do I see in SVN when the latest changes were done and which files have been changed?
And Do I need an account?

I would like to continue translating Atlas into german.

köm ma mal im icq auf deutsch machn

edit: I can explain him...but you really should create a kind of instruction step by step for mortals...not that easy

edit²: ok...start myself...

- First you need a googlemail-account. Just go to the google-page of your choice and you'll find a login-button in the upper right corner. Create a google-account.
- Send your googlemail-adress (sth like: [email protected]) to Dan (pm,mail,forum whatever) only he is able to invite you to the google-group.
- You need a svn-software, like Tortoise. Download (you should also download a language-packs if you've got probs with english) and install it.
- After the install got to the Atlas-Google-Group and log in with your account. Just download the newest Atlas from the Project Home Site. Unzip it anywhere (eg Desktop). I recommend to make a seperate Atlas-Work-Folder to play around, don't use the one in your wow/interface/addon directory.
- Go to the Source Tab. There you can see the atlas-svn-http (https://atlas-addon.googlecode.com/svn/trunk) copy that. You can also see your username, which is the name of your mailaccount. There's also a link called "googlecode.com password" click on it. Now you see your password.
- Right-click on the folder of your downloaded atlas (desktop eg). There you should see some new Kontextmenus made by SVN. Enter the Options.
- Got to Dialog1. At the bottom you enter the url you copied (https://atlas-addon.googlecode.com/svn/trunk). Above you see the Path of the Atlasfolder (C:\Docs and Settings\Username\Desktop\Atlas if it is on the Desktop). Close the menu.
- Right-click on the Folder and press "SVN aktualisieren". Now the Programm will ask you for your Username and Password. Username is the one of your google-mail-adress and the Password is the one you received before.
- Now the SVN gets the new files from the googlegroup. Now you've got the newest atlas as possible^^

- Now you're able to upload your data (eg Translations). Just change the *.lua you want and upload it with the upload-function in the folder-content-menu and everyone receive your data.
- If your chage sth, all members in the group will be informed via mail. Check your googlemail-account sometimes.
- At http://code.google.com/p/atlas-addon/ you can see a link called "updates" there are all the changes. Choose one and press the small "diff". Now you've got the orginial atlas-lua on the right and the new one with changes on the left. The changes are marked, so you can easily find them.
- If now Dan adds a new line anywhere in the english-local, you now exactly where to put in your translation.

should be the most importan stuff

Haha, brilliant Nihlo!

Dynaletik, if you have any specific questions let me know. I use Syncro SVN Client, however it's not free (http://www.syncrosvnclient.com/).

I use Tortoise SVN, it's free and works just fine for me... though I haven't tried any other yet.
