A simple script that I have put in my Django applications directory to fetch the latest application code from git and svn.

For example, your directory structure might look like so:

django-apps/
    django-tagging/
    django-pagination/
    django-registration/
    django-threadedcomments/
    django-mptt/
    update_apps.py

Where update_apps.py is the source of this snippet.

To run, simply execute:

python update_apps.py

And the script will iterate through all of your apps and update them to the latest version.

        git_path = os.path.join(app_dir, '.git')
        svn_path = os.path.join(app_dir, '.svn')
        if os.path.lexists(svn_path):
            print "Updating svn %s" % app_dir
            os.chdir(app_dir)
            call(['svn', 'update'])
        elif os.path.lexists(git_path):
            print "Updating git %s" % app_dir
            os.chdir(app_dir)
            call(['git', 'pull'])
        else:
            continue

Subversion has an "externals" facility that works well in this situation: simply define all your external apps (even Django itself, perhaps) in svn:externals, then an svn up will pull all the latest versions. (You can also lock a specific revision.)

I think git has something similar, but I don't know how it works.

Thanks! been wanting this for sometime

@kcarnold: That's a really great solution when all of your applications are within a subversion project, and we do it that way for the Pinax project. That being said, I like to keep a separate global directory just for Django apps, and this script addresses that particular use case.

Great snippet, but is it possible to add Mercurial support?

The update command is hg -u pull

Nice trick, but I'm pretty sure that your env usage is wrong – it's supposed to be something like this:

#!/usr/bin/env python
