Welcome back to part 3….and 4 😉 of the video series on how to host a WordPress plugin using Aptana and Subclipse to accomplish the Subversion gymnastics. If you haven’t already done so, check out Part 1 and Part 2 of this series now.
At this point, you should already have an email from WordPress with a URL to your plugin’s WordPress SVN repository. You should also have downloaded and installed Aptana and Subclipse. If so, you’re now ready for the fun stuff…the basic steps from here on out are:
- Check out your “trunk” folder from your WordPress SVN repository
- Create a local version of the repository
- Import your plugin’s files into the local repository
- Synchronize (Commit) your plugin files back to the remote repository
I’ve had to break this last section of the video into 2 parts for 2 reasons, 1) Screen Toaster is having some issues right now and you’re limited to 4 minutes of audio; 2) apperantly, I’m long winded.
Really, it doesn’t get any easier than this. I spent hours trying to figure this out, and you should be able to get the whole scoop in 16 minutes (four 4-minute videos 😉 )
