Mercurial tip of the day March 22, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielharrison @ 11:55 pm

If you’re on a mac and using murky and an authenticated store like bitbucket to push changes to, you can to edit your .hg/hgrc in the form of https://username:password@bitbucket to include your password which will allow a push to work from the push button. If anyone gets access to your machine they can now muck with the repository, but then again you’re probably already up the creek in that case.

Murky, the best mercurial client I’ve used on windows and mac; at this stage doesn’t support prompting you for credentials in response to authentication request, but it’s a pretty easy workaround.
