WP Mercurial


Not everyone has the luxury of seperate development, staging, and live servers. WP Mercurial helps work around the limitations of a single server by automating many of the repetitive Mercurial tasks required when updating WordPress.

Each time a plugin, a theme, or the core is updated, WP Mercurial will automatically run:

    hg -A commit -m '<description of update>' 

The description is based on what was updated.

WP Mercurial never pushes automatically.

There is also a dashboard widget that provides all the basic Hg commands.
