Do you need to strengthen the security of the mobile apps you build? Discover more than 50 secure mobile development coding practices to make your apps more secure.

Properties are a powerful and useful feature of Apache Subversion, but they can be easily overlooked. If you’re regularly using properties in your project, it’s a good idea to configure Subversion to add properties to new files automatically.

Subversion already sets some properties automatically: whenever you add a new file, it sets a value for the MIME type and decides whether the file is executable. You can extend this by leveraging Subversion’s automatic property setting feature “svn:auto-props.” With auto-props enabled, you can perform tasks such as automatically inserting keywords into text files and ensuring every file has EOLs that are consistent with the OS.

To enable auto-props:

1) Locate and open the config file on your local machine.

2) Scroll down to the [miscellany] section and uncomment the following line:

# enable-auto-props = yes

auto props

3) Just below this line, edit the ‘Section for configuring automatic properties’ text according to the properties you want to apply to your files.

Check out tips for blazing the way from agile to DevSecOps with security built into your mobile app toolchain.
