Xj3D SVN Details

This entire codebase is managed using SVN. It is possible to download everything to your machine to keep up to date and to track intimately what the developers are working on at any given second. Warning - it's big! As we don't provide a convenient zipped form of the source code, this is the only way to fetch it.

Software

If you do not know what SVN is, or you know but don't have any software, then you should pay a visit to the SVN Homepage. SVN allows you to do incrememental updates of files as they become available, as well as rollbacks to earlier versions. Thus, the files that you download from SVN may not always be in a compilable state, but they'll be the latest copy, pretty much whatever the developers are working on at the moment.

If you are unfamiliar with SVN, The SVN Book comes with high recommendations from the entire subversion-using community.

MS Windows users who prefer pretty graphical interfaces rather than command lines should check out TortiseSVN


Downloading

Anonymous svn read access can be had by using the following command:

  svn checkout http://svn.xj3d.org/xj3d_code

There is no password needed. However, this will check out all versions of Xj3D. We recommend instead, using the URL http://svn.xj3d.org/xj3d_code/trunk. We use the SVN convention of trunk and branch separate directories at the root of the tree, so you can find the various branches under xj3d_code/branches

There are separate SVN repositories for each managed codebase, including this website. You can browser these via the web by heading to http://svn.xj3d.org/.
