Mercurial is a cross-platform, distributed revision control tool for software developers.
It is mainly implemented using the Python programming language, but includes a binary diff implementation written in C. It is supported on Windows and Unix-like systems, such as FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Linux. Mercurial is primarily a command line program but graphical user interface extensions are available.
All of Mercurial’s operations are invoked as arguments to its driver program hg, a reference to the chemical symbol of the element mercury.
The Mercurial plugin allows you to connect the Mercurial source control server to ElectricFlow. This plugin enables you to perform:
- Code checkouts
- Preflight build
- Continuous integration.
