Nightly builds over SVN?

Postby agough » Wed May 06, 2015 4:10 pm

Hi guys, bit of a noobish question...

Is there any way of getting the contents of the latest Windows nightly build over SVN (or something else like it), so that each time a different build comes out, I can simply update my files, rather than download the whole thing again? I know I can just do that with the source code and build it myself, but compiling is rather slow on my system.

Thanks for your help! :D

it's all on the build server, so you could set up a job to regularly check for new files and download - which would be much better than using SVN for binary files.
Alternatively, you could team up with others to set up a torrent and set up uTorrent (or similar) to check for updates that way.
Either way, SVN is probably not a good tool for the job (in fact, even just rsync would be more suitable for the job).
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,
