ikiwiki-makerepo — check an ikiwiki srcdir into revision control


ikiwiki-makerepo git|svn|monotone|darcs|cvs srcdir repo

ikiwiki-makerepo bzr|mercurial srcdir


ikiwiki-makerepo injects an existing srcdir directory, containing sources for an ikiwiki wiki, into revision control. It is rarely run directly; consider using ikiwiki --setup /etc/ikiwiki/wiki.setup instead to set up a wiki.

For git, the repo is created as a bare git repository, and the srcdir is made into a clone of it. (monotone and darcs are similar.)

For svn and cvs, the repo is the centralized repository, and the srcdir is a checkout of it.

For mercurial and bzr, the srcdir is the only repository set up.

For darcs, the master repo's apply hook will be preconfigured to call a ikiwiki wrapper.

Note that for monotone, you are assumed to already have run "mtn genkey" to generate a key.


ikiwiki-makerepo git /srv/web/wiki /srv/git/wiki.git/

This creates a bare repository /srv/git/wiki.git/, and sets up /srv/web/wiki to be a clone of it, committing any files that already exist in that directory.
