TortoiseSVN Addin for Visual Studio – Disappointing

I wanted TortoiseSVN for Visual Studio 2010, so I searched and I was so excited to find one here: http://tsvnaddin.codeplex.com/SourceControl/list/changesets

I wanted this to work so bad, but it didn’t.  It doesn’t support Visual Studio 2010.

There is a bug you can vote for here: http://tsvnaddin.codeplex.com/workitem/16368

However, I checked an there hasn’t been an update to this project in in almost a year.

I sent an email to the person who did all the commits and asked if the project was dead.  If he doesn’t respond, I have to assume the answer is yes.

My source uses subversion and has a .svn directory in each subdirectory, how do I remove those .svn directories in Windows?

Method 1 – Exporting with TortoiseSVN
Well, if you are in windows with Tortoise SVN installed, you can right-click on the folder or inside the folder in white space and choose TortoiseSVN | Export. This allows you to select a folder and export your code without the .svn folders.

Method 2 – Scripted deletion
However, if you don’t have a Tortoise SVN Client but you have all those .svn folders, you can easily delete them by a simple one line command from the windows command prompt:

c:\path\to\source> for /F “tokens=*” %A in (‘dir /S /B /AD *.svn’) DO rmdir /S /Q “%A”
