How get Gallery on the Mac with Commandline Subversion

  1. Download and install the latest Subversion client binaries from Metissian at (must use univeral binary if you have an Intel-based Mac)
  2. Open Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal
  3. Change to the directory where you want to install Gallery. My choice was to install in my home directory by typing "cd ~/Sites" (without quotes).
  4. Type (or copy and paste) "svn checkout" at the prompt.
  5. If this is your first time using Sourceforge's SVN service, you'll be asked to validate their security certificate. Enter "t" to temporarily accept or "p" to permanently accept this certificate.
    SVN checkout

If successful, you will see a status display as Subversion checks out the requested files.

SVN checkout progress

That's it, you should now have the files you requested in a folder (gallery-contrib in this example). You may rename this folder if you wish, but do not rename files within it.

To update files, simply use the Terminal to cd inside the folder you've checked out and simply type "svn update".

See the Using_Subversion instructions for more details.

GUI SVN Clients for Mac OS X

If you'd rather avoid the command line, there are a few GUI Subversion clients available for the Mac. The following applications provide graphical interfaces and drag and drop features for performing Subversion functions.
