Convulsion is a drop-in CVS repository browser for PHP. It makes use of the libraries developed for the Chora module of the Horde project, but does not require that Horde be installed and working to be used.

You can browse directories and files, view a file's revision history, compare two versions, and retrieve its ChangeLog. Convulsion also supports automatic obfuscation of e-mail addresses and syntax highlighting of most common languages.

Convulsion's output is standards-compliant, accessible, and customisable by means of CSS.

Using Convulsion with Apache 2.x

Please note that in order to use Convulsion with the 2.x series of the Apache web server, you will need to set the value of the "AcceptPathInfo" directive to a value other than "Off". This can be done in the main Apache config, in the < VirtualHost > section for your site or using a .htaccess file.
