hgview(1) Qt based mercurial repository browser


hgview [options] [filename]


hgview(1) is a GUI application usually invoked from the command line. The simplest way to use it is to install it as a hg extension. Alternatively, it can be used as a standalone application.

If [filename] is given, hgview will start in file-diff mode, in which user can easily compare arbitrary revisions of a file.

Use ``hg help hgview`` for an extended help description


-n, --navigate (require a filename)

starts in filelog navigation mode

-r REV, --rev=REV

starts in manifest mode for given revision



This is the standard file for configuring hg and its extensions. See hg qv-config for more details on what can be configured this way.


This file holds configurations related to authors of patches in the hg repository. See hg qv-config for more details on what can be configured this way.


Please report any found bug on the mailing list or via email. Patches (or mercurial bundles) are always welcome.
