Create branches through loggerhead

Asked by beniwtv


Is it possible to create branches and tags through loggerhead? If not, is it planned?

That would be an awesome feature, since then we would have a complete web GUI environment for bzr, which all users can use. Would it be difficult if I'd like to have a go at it?

It's not possible at the moment. It would not be all that hard though, because Loggerhead can use the bzrlib api and and it would be an interesting/cool feature. If you're interested in starting on it, have a look at <> and the pages linked from there, and please do ask if you want more guidance, either here or on the list.

Hi Martin,

I have been using Python quite a lot and the bzr API seems reasonable clean enough, so I definitively want to have a go at it. I don't know Loggerhead's code-base yet, so if you can give me a few directions, it would be great.

Also, I'm thinking about the implementation in the UI. I initially thought to add two links to the branches/directory browser, like 'Create branch here' and 'Create directory' here, but I realize not all people use the directory browser the same way (Basically, I have one directory per server, and all the branches for that server reside in that directory). What are your thoughts on this/any ideas about the UI it would have?

Can I suggest we take this to the <email address hidden> list where more people can participate in it?
