The Blender source code and add-on repositories have moved to Git, however some things remain in Subversion repositories for now:
- prebuilt Windows and Mac OS X library dependencies.
Repositories from old projects on projects.blender.org are also still accessible through svn.
Access to the repositories is provided via https:// both for anonymous (read access) and commit access (write access).
The web interface is a convenience for browsing the sources.
- SVN URL: https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-translations
- Web interface: https://developer.blender.org/diffusion/BTS
Windows and Mac OS X libraries:
- SVN URL: https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/trunk/lib/<operating_system>
- Web interface: https://developer.blender.org/diffusion/BL
The source code can be checked out anonymously.
You will need a Subversion client. Most systems have one installed by default. For a list of clients see Overview of Subversion clients.
When you checkout, you will probably see an error message about the certificate that is not issued by a trusted authority. However, the certificate is fully functional and will ensure secure transit of the data. You can permanently accept this certificate.
If you get the message "Certificate verification error: signed using insecure algorithm" without proposing to accept the certificate, open with the file
~/.subversion/servers and add on the bottom of it:
ssl-trust-default-ca = no
First, do a checkout with the following command:
svn checkout --username MyUserName https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/<some_repository>
Next, you may be prompted for a password. This is the password used to login at https://developer.blender.org.
(Note: Subversion will store your password on your local system and use it next time you communicate with the repository.)
