Tagged as: darcs, app.


Dawb is simple web based browser for the Darcs repositories. It allows quick check of repositories which are hosted on pure HTTP server without DarcsWeb or anything similar (patchtag, darcsden). Sometimes I need to check how alive is the some project without darcs command near the hand.

Accessible on:

Example repositories:

RSS feeds:


Software is not prepared for general usage and it has all configuration hardcoded. It starts local HTTP service on http://localhost:3000/changes after start.

$ darcs get --lazy
$ cd dawb
$ cabal install
$ dawb

Please be aware that it is still ALPHA quality software.
