Git plugin for Oxygen Author

Thu Jun 08, 2017 3:57 pm


It might be a stupid question/topic but i have some difficulties to find the git plugin in Oxygen Author and to install it. I don't really know where to find. I tried to search on google but i found no answers.

Actually, i'm evaluating Oxygen Author 19.0 and i would like to know how i can associate git repositories with Oxygen Author to manage the different versions of my dita projects (I'm new user with Github).

When i'm searching for addons directly from Author, there's still nothing about github.

Is there someone who can help me please ?

Thank you.

Hi Jeremy,

There is no special Git or GitHub plugin for Oxygen XML Author/Editor.
You can use a Git client application like the free Atlassian SourceTree to check out the project on the local disk and then use Oxygen to edit resources from your local checkout. Afterwards you can use SourceTree to commit and push the changes back to the remote repository.
We also have an online XML editing solution which can be used to directly edit resources from GitHub, you can demo it here:

GitHub seems to have Support for Subversion clients.
So, you can actually use the SVN Client bundled with Oxygen (Tools menu) to checkout a project from GitHub:
1. On GitHub, navigate to the main page of the repository.
2. Under the repository name, click Clone or download.
3. In the Clone with HTTPs section, click the clipboard icon to copy the clone URL for the repository.
4. Open the SVN Client, go to the Repositories tab and add there the repository URL from the clipboard.
5. Expand the connection and checkout the "trunk" folder.
6. After the checkout has finished go to the "Working copy" tab to find the checked out project.

Do note that you are basically using SVN on GitHub repositories, so the projects are managed as SVN working copies (no Git involved on client side). This means you only have SVN features, no Git specific features.
