I just found this plugin and it’s great! One thing that I think would make it better is if there was an option to colorize the text in the project drawer instead of using an icon overlay. The icons are hard to see if the document’s icon is the same color where the overlaid icon is.
Thanks for the great plugin! It’s really nice to be able to see Subversion status in the project drawer. I’ve run into a little problem though. One of my projects has Japanese characters in the file names, and svn chokes on them unless I set the LCALL environment variable to a UTF-8 locale. SVNMate seems to be running svn in such a way that my shell profile is ignored: my project won’t open when SVNMate is installed, and the errors in my console log are the same character set conversion errors that I got in Terminal before setting LCALL. Can you give me some insight into how SVNMate runs svn so I can figure out where else I need to set my locale?
I played around with my locale problem a little more today and it doesn’t appear to be a matter of environment variables. The error I’m seeing in the console log is “Conversion to encoding 30 failed,” which means you’re probably calling NSString’s cString method. You might consider using the UTF8String method instead.
I’ve also encountered the same problem with upgrading to subversion 1.5.0 (via MacPorts). As soon as the checkout has been converted to the new 1.5 format (via an update, commit or new checkout), SVNMate ceases to work.
