Mercurial is a distributed revison control system developed by Matt Mackall. Ikiwiki supports storing a wiki in a mercurial repository.
Ikiwiki can run as a
incoming hook to update a wiki whenever commits or remote pushes
come in. When running as a cgi with Mercurial, ikiwiki automatically
commits edited pages, and uses the Mercurial history to generate the
Example for a
.hg/hgrc file in
[hooks] post-commit = ikiwiki --setup /path/to/ikiwiki.setup --post-commit incoming = ikiwiki --setup /path/to/ikiwiki.setup --post-commit
Do not use
precommit hooks or ikiwiki will run into a dead lock when committing in
$SRCDIR. Also note that
--post-commit and not
--refresh must be used to avoid dead locking when editing the pages via CGI interface.
