Set SVN svn:externals In Command Line

Use this command if you wish to include the pysphere code inside your project repository:

svn propset svn:externals 'pysphere' .

Note that dot at the end of the command and the quotes around the directory name and url.

Now commit with:
svn commit
and then update:
svn up
In order to set multiple directory/url pairs in a single svn:externals property, you should put the individual dir/url pairs into a file (let's call it 'svn.externals'), like so:
and then apply the property using
svn propset svn:externals -F svn.externals .
You should also just check in 'svn.externals' to easily keep track of it.

You can also use:
svn propedit svn:externals .
an editor will open and you can add the external repositories, one per line, like this:
path/to/extenal http://url/of/repo
