Great svn client software for Visual Studio

Published on Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Let me recommend a plugin for Visual Studio, its name is AnkhSVN.

I think many programmer might be using TortoiseSVN as a svn client tool. Yes, TortoiseSVN is a great SVN client (it has server function also) too. But if you write code using visual studio, you might think about a svn client which is more fit for Visual Studio IDE.

For example, you might know it is painful if you need to add or delete files, when you use TortoiseSVN, most of time you have to click “Add” to add your new generated files, if you forget to "Add" files, TortoiseSVN will not add your new files by default.

Fortunately there is a perfect svn tool is just for Visual Studio, After you used this svn client, you will not want to leave away from it.

Actually, it is a plugin for Visual Studio, its name is AnkhSVN, you can download from its official site
