So I’m knocking off a little earlier today, as I’m heading over to a friend’s house for dinner. Unfortunately haven’t got anything much interesting to show for the last 8 hours, but I have finally managed to set up ClanLib, Mercurial (with TortoiseHG, VisualHG and BitBucket,) and the DirectX SDK. (That last one was a pain in the butt!)
I was hoping to get it all down a little earlier and actually have started work on something already, (I’d set aside an hour for these tasks that took me the whole day…) but I’ve learnt a bit about setting up and using free Revision Control Server repository, and the associated softwares. It did take me a while to figure out all the ignore/unfollow/revert features, and there’s still lessons to be learned no doubt. So I guess I can eat happy knowing that hopefully the half-day I have tomorrow will actually turn over some results.
For those that are interested, here’s what my setup now looks like:
- BitBucket Account (Free, Unlimited Space)
- TortoiseHG 2.3
- Mercurial 2.1
- Visual Studio 2010
