Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

Add new files/directory to subversion repository

These part of the command:

svn status | grep '^\?' => find new file or directory on working copy

sed -e 's/^\?//g' => remove "^" character on the first character of file name

xargs svn add => add file to subversion repository

You can modify above command to other circumtances, like revert addition files or commit files that have been modified. ^_^

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

It's useful sometimes, but it's also dangerous to do this automatically at most of the time, we always add new files/directories manually in our team.

Have you recently read a book from Neal Ford? :-)

I always run svn status as svn status -q to not display '?' for unknown files. Before I knew about the -q option I was doing:

svn status | grep '^[^\?]'

which searches for anything not beginning with '?'

@H4rpy
