BitBucket is deleting all of my source code repositories because Mercurial lost the dev wars to Git. Meh, it's up to Atlassian I guess. It's a free service after all.

This includes a bunch of old projects I don't maintain anymore like Ships Mod, Power Tools, my mod loader system, Enigma, JFXGL.

I've backed up all the source code so it won't be lost forever, but Atlassian's decision means the code won't be available online anymore.

I could just convert them all to Git and upload to my GitHub (, but that sounds like a lot of work for ~20 different repos. I'm far too lazy for that.

If you're reading this and you still actually care about one of these old projects, let me know. If you ask nicely, I'll convert the repo and put it on GitHub for you.

@cuchaz you could check out, which has support for mercurial iirc

@Arteneko I've been meaning to check out actually. I keep hearing great things about it.

@Arteneko Tho really, I'm waiting for a good decentralized/federated alternative to GitHub that supports something like issues and PRs.

@cuchaz the Fabric project also maintains a fork of Enigma these days, if you weren't aware:

@shadowfacts Yeah, I've heard about a couple different forks. I'm amazed the Enigma code has lived on for so long!

@cuchaz someone apparently added collaborative editing a la google docs which is kind of crazy
