Projects / Submin


Submin provides a Web-based admin interface to your Subversion and Git repositories. Its features include user/group management, path permission management, the ability to create svn repositories and managing commit email messages. For Subversion, authentication is done with htpasswd/svn authz, so it can use the same login information as apache2/svn (and trac). For Git, ssh is used, and the login information is synched whenever a change is made. The Web interface can also work with NGINX/uWSGI, but the Subversion part only works with Apache.

            Above comment was about version 0.1 (thanks for the
            feedback by the way). Current version should have none of
            these problems, except that MD5 sums are still mandatory.

            Not being Python-savvy, I was able to get this up and running with a minimum of difficulty. The biggest issues was setting PYTHONPATH so that it could find the submin libs (export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python-2.3:.:www/lib), fixing a few hard-coded links in the setup script, and changing my .htpasswd formats to MD5 hashes (you'll need to use the -m option with htpasswd).

            Works as advertised: Repos can be created manually, modifications to the authz file can be made (existing entries are preserved), and new users/groups can be created.

            Unpolished around the edges (there are a few overlapping icons/text areas when viewed in FF), but quite functional.

            This is a Python application, probably should be mentioned in the summary.
