Web CVS viewing
The basics were pretty straightforward; ran the
viewvc-install script to install it into
/usr/local/viewvc-1.0.0, and then went to
added a symlink with
ln -s /usr/local/viewvc-1.0.0/bin/cgi cvs.
Next was to get Apache to run the ViewVC scripts. In a very similar way to
one of the steps in the
Bugzilla installation, this involved editing
/etc/httpd/httpd.conf to add a new section (followed by a
killall -HUP httpd):
<Directory /Library/WebServer/Documents/cvs> AddHandler cgi-script .cgi Options +Indexes +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex viewvc.cgi AllowOverride Limit </Directory>
Now time for some added chrome: syntax colouring. I tried both Enscript and Highlight (the former from the enscript Fink package, the latter from source), and decided to go for Highlight as it included line numbers in the output.
One final tweak, though: Highlight wasn't recognising some of our Visual Basic files, because they
have slightly different extensions (
A quick modification to
/etc/highlight/filetypes.conf to change the line
$ext(vb)=bas basic bito read
$ext(vb)=bas basic bi dsr clsand we're done.
