svn 0.3.19

Intuitive Subversion wrapper.

Latest Version: 0.3.38


svn is a simple Subversion library for Python. I wrote it so that there could be a lightweight and accessible library that was also available on PyPI. It is compatible with both Python 2.7 and 3.3+.

I’ve only implemented the functionality that I have required:

  • Listing entries
  • Getting info
  • Getting log
  • Checking-out
  • Exporting

You are more than welcome to submit pull-requests to add more support for additional subcommands.


Usage is divided between two clients that either allow for access to a local working-directory or a remote repository.

Both clients inherit a common set of methods that work with both local working-directories and remote repositories.


LocalClient allows access to a local working copy.

Example LocalClient usage:

import svn.local
import pprint

r = svn.local.LocalClient('/dev/repo')



{'commit#revision': 0,
 'commit/author': None,
 'commit/date': datetime.datetime(2014, 4, 1, 5, 50, 27, 826988, tzinfo=tzutc()),
 'entry#kind': 'dir',
 'entry#path': 'working_copy',
 'entry#revision': 0,
 'relative_url': '^/',
 'repository/root': 'file:///svn/test/repo',
 'repository/uuid': '48195b71-8d94-4528-a019-ec81ebc7e65a',
 'url': 'file:///svn/test/repo',
 'wc-info/depth': 'infinity',
 'wc-info/schedule': 'normal',
 'wc-info/wcroot-abspath': '/svn/dev/working_copy'}


RemoteClient allows access to a remote repository.

  • checkout(path)

Example RemoteClient usage:

import svn.remote

r = svn.remote.RemoteClient('https://repo.local/svn')

Common Functionality

These methods are available on both clients.

  • info()
  • export(path)
  • cat(rel_filepath)
  • log_default(timestamp_from_dt=None, timestamp_to_dt=None, limit=None)


Previously, the LocalClient and RemoteClient classes were exposed at the package level:

  • svn.LocalClient
  • svn.RemoteClient

Unfortunately, this interfered with dependency management during installation. The imports will now have to be, respectively:

  • svn.local (for LocalClient)
  • svn.remote (for RemoteClient)

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
