hgapi
=====

   :target: https://travis-ci.org/haard/hgapi


hgapi is a pure-Python API to Mercurial, that uses the command-line
interface instead of the internal Mercurial API. The rationale for
this is twofold: the internal API is unstable, and it is GPL.

hgapi works for all versions of Mercurial, and will instantly reflect any
changes to the repository (including hgrc). It also has a really
permissive license (do whatever you want, don't blame me).

For example of code that uses this API, take a look at
https://bitbucket.org/haard/autohook which now uses hgapi
exclusively. Add any feature requests or bugs found to the issue tracker.

So far, the API supports::

 hg add [<file>]
 hg addremove [<file>]
 hg archive [-t type] [-r rev] <destination>
 hg bookmarks [-r rev] [-f] [-m name newname | -d name | -i name | name]
 hg branch
 hg branches
 hg clone
 hg commit [files] [-u name] [--close-branch]
 hg diff
 hg heads
 hg id
 hg incoming
 hg init
 hg log
 hg merge (fails on conflict)
 hg outgoing
 hg paths
 hg pull [<source>]
 hg push [<destination>]
 hg remove
 hg rename <source> <destination>
 hg revert
 hg root
 hg status
 hg tag
 hg tags
 hg update <rev>
 hg version

You also have access to the configuration (config, configbool,
configlist) just as in the internal Mercurial API. The repository
supports slicing and indexing notation.

Example usage::

    >>> import hgapi
    >>> repo = hgapi.Repo("test_hgapi")  # existing folder
    >>> repo.hg_init()
    >>> repo.hg_add("file.txt")  # already created but not added file
    >>> repo.hg_commit("Adding file.txt", user="me")
    >>> str(repo['tip'].desc)
    'Adding file.txt'
    >>> len(repo[0:'tip'])
    1
    >>> open('test_hgapi/file.txt', 'a').write('\nAdded line') # doctest: +IGNORE_RESULT
    >>> diff = repo.hg_diff()  # returns list of diffs
    >>> assert diff[0]['filename'] == 'file.txt'
    >>> assert '+Added line' in diff[0]['diff']

Installation
============

Easiest is easy_install or pip from PyPy::

 pip install hgapi

or::

 easy_install hgapi

Otherwise, download the source, make sure you have setuptools
installed, and then run::

 python setup.py install


Development
===========

Do not hesitate to send requests, issues or perform code reviews! When developing please follow the pep8 guidelines (see http://legacy.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/) and do use tox to check your code::

 tox

Tox will make sure that hgapi runs on Python 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4; and it will check the pep8 compliance.
