Branching and Turning on Flow Control

I believe I have read somewhere that HgLabs does not currently support Branches?
If so, then what is the suggested work around?

Can I branch a local repo and then push it back up to HgLab server where it will then show up in the Branches?

Can I install TortoiseHg onto my HgLabs 1.75 server?
And then use a cmd line Hg or a TortoiseHg gui to branch something on the server?
obviously i'll try this pretty soon but after getting the server running, I hate to mess with it.

Finally, I see other discussions about Flow Control vs. Branching but I don't see where I would activate that on my repos/

    I see from your blog that Flow is turned on automatically if you have installed the python module for it. I believe that answers the question of Flow

    Depends on what you mean by "support Branches". What HgLab does not support is Forks and Merge Requests. It knows very well about named branches: e.g. All branches you create locally and then push up to HgLab will be displayed on this page.

    On the server side, HgLab supports Flow without installing anything extra. The "Flow" tab is activated automatically as soon as HgLab sees the .flow or .hgflow file present.

    On the client side, a Mercurial extension is required.

    You can indeed install TortoiseHg on the server, but there's no point in having it there.

    Tx, makes sense now. Named branches working just fine.
