SVN is accessed by using a special program called a client. Once you've installed the SVN client of your choice on your machine (see below for a list), you'll need the repository access URL to interact with your CloudForge repository.
To get an access URL for your client, follow these steps:
- Login to CloudForge > Projects tab > click on the Project name > click SVN tab on the left side
- Find the blue "Quick URLs" header on the right side
- Below the HTTPS URL text, the repository access URL is posted
There are a variety of clients available for Subversion, and some of the more popular examples include:
scplugin (Integrates with Mac OSX Finder - similar to TortoiseSVN for Windows)
coda 2 web development IDE
Good ol' command line client for most platforms (plenty of *nix flavors and windows)
Each of these clients has a different interface, so you will need to read their own documentation for information on how to use them.
