svn_log — Returns the commit log messages of a repository URL


array svn_log ( string $repos_url [, int $revision_no ] )

svn_log() returns the complete history of the item at the repository URL repos_url , or the history of a specific revision if revision_no is set. This function is equivalent to svn log --verbose -r $revision_no $repos_url .


For repositories with large histories, the output may be quite large (one array item for every revision of the item). This function does not support the --limit NUM flag, nor does it support revision ranges (revision_no must be an integer).



Repository URL of the item to retrieve log history from.


Revision number of the log to retrieve. Use SVN_REVISON_HEAD to retrieve the log for the most recent revision.

Return values

On success, this function returns an array file listing in the format of:

[0] => Array, ordered most recent (highest) revision first
    [rev] => integer revision number
    [author] => string author name
    [msg] => string log message
    [date] => string date formatted per ISO 8601, i.e. date('c')
    [paths] => Array, describing changed files
            [0] => Array
                    [action] => string letter signifying change
                    [path] =>  absolute repository path of changed file
            [1] => ...
[1] => ...

Note: The output will always be a numerically indexed array of arrays, even when there are none or only one log message(s).

The value of action is a subset of the » status output in the first column, where possible values are:

Letter Description
M Item/props was modified
A Item was added
D Item was deleted
R Item was replaced

If no changes were made to the item, an empty array is returned.

Example#1 svn_log() example

svn_log(''23) );

The above example will output something similar to:

    [0] => Array
        [rev] => 23
        [author] => 'joe'
        [msg] => 'Add cheese and salami to our sandwich.'
        [date] => '2007-04-06T16:00:27-04:00'
        [paths] => Array
                [0] => Array
                        [action] => 'M'
                        [path] =>  '/sandwich.txt'

Example#2 Simulating --limit with svn and svn_log()

This sample function simulates the --limit switch by using the SVN executable to return a list of revisions, which are then losslessly accessed using svn_log().

Note: This function will perform a total of limit + 1 requests: the first request to pull the required revisions, and each one after to retrieve the log item for that request.

 * Retrieves the last $limit log entries.
 * @param $repos_url Repository URL of item to get logs for
 * @param $limit Integer limit of items
function svn_log_limit($repos_url$limit) {
$limit = (int) $limit;
    if (
$limit <= 0) return array();
// -q flag used to prevent server from sending log messages
$output shell_exec("svn log -q --limit $limit $repos_url");
preg_match_all('/^r(\d+) /m'$output$matches);
$ret = array();
    foreach (
$matches[1] as $rev) {
$log svn_log($repos_url, (int) $rev);
$ret[] = $log[0]; // log is only one item long
