About this site

This is the developer site for RapidSVN. You have access to the source code of RapidSVN, the issue tracker and the mailing lists. If you are a user of RapidSVN you might want to take a look at http://www.rapidsvn.org where we are working on the Documentation and Online Help of RapidSVN

RapidSVN is a cross-platform GUI front-end for the Subversion revision system written in C++ using the wxWidgets framework. This project also includes a Subversion client C++ API.


We want to build a best of breed visual client that utilizes the best features of clients from other revision control architectures. While being easy enough for users new to Subversion to work with it must also be powerful enough to make experienced users even more productive.


  • Simple - provides an easy to use interface for Subversion features
  • Efficient - simple for beginners but flexible enough to increase productivity for experienced Subversion users
  • Portable - runs on any platform on which Subversion and wxWidgets can run: Linux, Windows, Mac OS/X, Solaris, etc.
  • Fast - entirely written in C++
  • Multilingual - it has been translated to many languages already: German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese
  • Full support for Unicode


RapidSVN depends on a couple of frameworks. So if you want to compile RapidSVN you have to download, configure and compile these frameworks first (unless you have access to a precompiled binary package with development files like headers and libraries included).

Building from source


RapidSVN is always in need of hackers, translators documentors. If you are interested in conversing with some of the other developers then join the development mailing list. This project goes by a few coding conventions so please read the Hacker's Guide To RapidSVN.

If you want to know what needs to be done for the first release or submit a bug then use the Issue Tracker.

We hope you join us!


The original code was written by Paul Marculescu with the name Visual Subversion. When Paul had no more time to devote to the program he released it to the Subversion development list where Brent Matzelle and Alexander Mueller picked up the code and started this project with the new name RapidSVN.
