We primarily use TortoiseHg for our day-to-day work instead of the command line, and so all we need to interact with the remote repositories in Kiln is the URL, not the full command to clone the repository. As of right now, there's only a few ways to get just the URL:
- Click on the repository we want, (wait for the page to load), and then click the Copy to Clipboard link
- Click the "context" menu for the repository we want on the Browse page, select Clone, expand the pop-up box to see the whole URL, copy just the URL (because we don't need "hg clone"), and click done
- Right-click the repository from the Browse page, and select Copy Link Address (in Chrome)
It would be GREAT if we could just click the context menu, and click a Copy to Clipboard link right from there. It's technically the same number of clicks, but we wouldn't have to back-arrow to get back to the browse page, and we wouldn't have to wait for a page-load, since the context menu loads pretty quickly.
Right-click->Copy Link Address works pretty well too, but it's not very intuitive unless you have made the connection that the repository history URL is the same as what Mercurial uses as the URL of the actual repository. Making this connection isn't real easy for beginners, so making this more explicit would be a big help to us.
