#69 closed enhancement (fixed)

Easier install?

Reported by: eddie Owned by: anybody
Priority: low Component: Request-a-Hack
Severity: minor Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release:


I'm not sure if this is simply an oversight on my side here,

but do I *really* have to download each of your files one by one and rebuild the directory structure to get this plugin to even *build* an egg?

If so, this is highly annoying, and would be nice to have build for us.

Ah. Just found this by using subversion.

Would be nice if the link to 'Download' didn't point to the browser, but instead had a note about using Subversion to get at the sources.

Unless of course the Browser has an option for downloading a tree? If not, *that* would be a neat plugin. :)

I'll re-open this because it would indeed be nice to have a download-svn-url-as-tarball plugin or macro. I'll reassign it to TracHacks though :)

  • milestone set to 0.9
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • version set to 0.9

I think this would be best accomplished with a plugin, probably mapping <base>/download-source/<path> and adding a download-source:<path> link to the wiki.

Should be relatively trivial.

Pardon my ignorance, but what sort of download will this result in? A tar.gz? Or a tar.bz2? Etc.

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by athomas

I envisage it being configurable. So you could have something like this in the trac.ini

packager = zip

Plus others for tar.bz2, tar.gz, etc.

I've added a facility for downloading hacks, eg. download:tocmacro.
