I write code

git

I’ve been using darcs as my version control software of choice for quite a while now, but unfortunately I’m having trouble using it with dreamhost 🙁 I’ve looked about on the web for anybody who has successfully created public repositories on dreamhost, but all I can find is people asking how to do it. Since I want to make the source for my httpmail plugin available and working with the sourceforge subversion repository is a pain I’ve decided to give git a try.

My public git repository is available at http://git.danielparnell.com/ and the httpmail project can be accessed directly via
http://git.danielparnell.com/public/httpmail.git.

The code currently in the repository contains a target for Leopard which partially works. I’m not going to release binaries as yet because it is nowhere near ready for prime time at this stage.

What works:

  1. Connecting to Hotmail
  2. Downloading messages from the inbox
  3. Downloading messages from sub-folders (as long as the plugin is configured to store sub-folders under the root folder, not the inbox folder)

What doesn’t work

  1. Creating accounts
  2. Sending mail
  3. Pretty much everything else

So, if you’re feeling brave, and have git installed on your system along with XCode 3.0, feel free to check out the source and have a play (any code contributions will be greatly appreciated). For everybody else, rest assured I am working on it, if somewhat slowly.
