Diffly seems to have problems to read the custom stylesheet. I tried to put it in /Users/uname/Lib/App Support/Diffly at first and then escaped the blank with a \ and putting the whole path into '...'. Didn't work. Then I tried to put the css directly into my homedir. Doesn't work. The main problem with the provided stylesheet is that the font is HUGE!

Heh... sorry about that... curse of using a large display I guess. I didn't really test the custom CSS properly, I'm going to push out another update in a few days, I'll try and make sure its working then.

Thanks for the report. I've now debugged the problem with setting preferences (and in the process identified the same problem with the svn path reported by others in the past). This will be fixed and custom stylesheets working in 0.8 which I will release in a few days.

The newly released Version 0.8 addresses the font issue in two ways. First I have set the default stylesheet font to 9pt. Second I have fixed the problem with specifying a custom stylesheet. Hope this helps. Matt

I'm not sure what you mean about password protected repositories. Diffly is a working copy browser, not a repository browser. If you can check out the password protected repository to a working copy, Diffly will browse it. It can also commit to password protected repositories provided you have checked out a working copy successfully.

Maybe it's something server sided, but after checking out something from a password protected repository, It tends to try to upload it without asking for a password to open the server up for me. Which one way or another, results in a permissions denied error. I've tried this with another app as well resulting in the same error, unless I use svn trough the terminal, so it might not be the application's fault ^^;

Under the hood Diffly is calling the command line SVN client for diffs, add, and commit. In essence it does: svn ci --non-interactive --file --targets Having written the commit message and list of files to be committed into temp files. If you can tell me what's different about my command line and what works for you, I can maybe improve the situation in a future release. Regards, Matt

The server itself needs a password to connect to, otherwise it won't open any connection at all, so when i use svn commit in the command line, it'll first ask for a password to allow me to collect to the server before it allows me to actually commit. It stands loose from svn commit --username --password, so i think it would be something i'd have to adjust on the server to allow log in without a password

When you try to connect to a password protected repository Subversion will prompt you for your login credentials. It caches these locally so that you don't need to keep re-entering them for the same server. I use Diffly with a working copy from a password protected, SSL enabled, repository with no problems. If svn is not using cached credentials it sounds like you have something unusual going on in your svn client.

It's the server that's password protected, not the repository, maybe that's got something to do with it. Or indeed it's something with my svn, though i couldn't imagine what. I'll try it again when i make some changes on the project again ;) besides that little problem with my set up, it's a really neat and simple little app that works well :)

Here's where i'm stuck: "You can use "svn+ssh" URLs if you have arranged SSH to allow you access without a password prompt." I haven't allowed access SSH without a password prompt on the mentioned server ;) also, in a future release you might work on some font controlling so it's easier to see what is said in the diff pane

Ah I've no idea what extra problems svn+ssh might create. If it's something you can fix by passing additional command-line parameters then it might be do-able. As to font control take a look at the readme.txt. You can override the stylesheet used by Diffly to control how diffs are displayed. Change the fonts, change the colours, change what you like.
