svnstash

A stash "extension" for subversion. Missing git?

The back-story

One week at work, I was trying to figure out how to stash my working copy in SVN only to discover that I could not. Everywhere I looked, I saw nothing but huge “svn stash” projects with incredibly complex syntaxes and impossible to remember commands. I missed git.

Why was it so hard?

During that long week, I hacked together a simple solution that you can drop into your local bin and use, just like git stash. Everything exists in one python file, without any external dependencies (besides SVN, obviously). Have fun.

I want this

Yeah, so did I. Here you go: svnstash on GitHub

How do I use this?

Quite well…erm, I mean, read the documentation.
