Build Status



Python bindings for the Subversion version control system that are aimed to be complete, fast and feel native to Python programmers.

Bindings are provided for the working copy, client, delta, remote access and repository APIs. A hookable server side implementation of the custom Subversion protocol (svn_ra) is also provided.

Differences with similar packages

subvertpy covers more of the APIs than python-svn. It provides a more "Pythonic" API than python-subversion, which wraps the Subversion C API pretty much directly. Neither provide a hookable server-side.


Subvertpy depends on Python 2.7 or 3.5, and Subversion 1.4 or later. It should work on Windows as well as most POSIX-based platforms (including Linux, BSDs and Mac OS X).

See for instructions on installing Subversion.


Standard distutils are used - use " build" to build and "setup.install" to install. On most platforms, setup will find the Python and Subversion development libraries by itself.


If using GCC it might be useful to disable the deprecation warnings when compiling to see if there are any more serious warnings:

make CFLAGS="-Wno-deprecated-declarations"
