Installing GitPlugin in Windows

Reported by: uribeuso Owned by: sjain
Priority: highest Component: TracGitPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


I'm installing GitPlugin in Windows. I have installed the plugin successfully but the web-pages show this error:

Can't synchronize with the repository (GIT backend not available)

I think it's because i have some errors in trac.ini:
git_bin = /usr/src/git-dev/git

I have tried with C:\Program Files\Git\bin\git.exe but it doesn't works.

Is it posible to install GitPlugin in Windows?

I got Git working with Trac 0.11 under Windows XP by doing the following:

  1. Modified line 45 in from:

return os.popen3(cmd) # (input, output, error)
return os.popen3(" ".join(cmd)) # (input, output, error)

  1. Modified line 140 in from:

_git_bin = PathOption('git', 'git_bin', 'git', "file name of git executable")
_git_bin = Option('git', 'git_bin', 'git', "file name of git executable")

  1. Added path/to/git/bin to the PATH environment variable.
  1. In trac.ini: git_bin = git (because it won't work with a full path that contains spaces, such as "Program Files")

  • Trac Release changed from 0.11 to 0.12

Using Windows 7 64 bit:

Tried some workarounds and recompiled the egg, but appearently, there is a problem when trying to run the "git" relying on PATH environment variable, and I also had problems when setting git_bin to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe

But I think this was a permissions issue. I have installed Git in C:\Git, pointed git_bin to "C:\Git\cmd\git.cmd" in trac.ini and that solved it.

Trac: 0.12

I found C:\Git\cmd\git.cmd substantially slower then using C:\Program Files\Git\bin\git.exe

C:\Git\cmd\git.cmd seems to open and closes numerous cmd.exe processes while git.exe uses git.exe and httpd.exe
