Application Details

  • Description: Mercurial efficiently handles projects of any size and kind. Every clone contains the whole project history, so most actions are local, fast and convenient. Mercurial supports a multitude of workflows and you can easily enhance its functionality with extensions.
  • Version: 3.9.1
  • Modules: mercurial/3.9.1
  • Licence: licensed under GPLv2

Usage Examples

Distributed architecture

Traditional version control systems such as Subversion are typical client-server architectures with a central server to store the revisions of a project. In contrast, Mercurial is truly distributed, giving each developer a local copy of the entire development history. This way it works independent of network access or a central server. Committing, branching and merging are fast and cheap.

To access in an interactive or non-interactive (using SLURM), you will need to load the module.


[username@gpu01 ~]$ module mercurial/3.9.1

Clone a project and push changes


$ hg clone https://www.mercurial-scm.org/repo/hello

$ hg add (new files)
$ hg commit -m 'My changes'

Create a project and commit


$ hg init (project-directory)
$ cd (project-directory)
