Mercurial (Hg)

Mercurial is a free, distributed source control management tool and is used for version control of files. Mercurial is distributed, giving each developer a local copy of the entire development history.

  • It works independently of network access or a central server.
  • Committing, branching and merging are fast and cheap.
  • You can generate diffs between revisions, or jump back in time within seconds and is suitable for large projects.
  • Mercurial is platform independent. Most of Mercurial is written in Python, with a small part in portable C for performance reasons.
  • The functionality of Mercurial can be expanded with extensions, which can change the workings of the basic commands, add new commands and access all the core functions of Mercurial.
  • The basic interface is easy to use, easy to learn and hard to break.
