Auto-generated acronyms from a table in a Wiki page


Automatically generates HTML acronyms from definitions in tables in a Wiki page (AcronymDefinitions by default).

Acronyms are in the form <acronym>[<id>] and are defined in a table with four columns:

Acronym, Description [, URL [, ID URL]]

Only the first two columns are required.

If an <id> is provided, the ID URL is used and any occurrences of the symbol $1 in the description and the ID URL are substituted with the <id>.

Rows starting with ||' are ignored.

Bugs/Feature Requests

Existing bugs and feature requests for AcronymsPlugin are here.

If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

With the patch from #3722 it seems to work in Trac 0.11 as well.


Download the zipped source from here.


You can check out AcronymsPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


Create a Wiki page holding your acronym definitions in the way described above (for example Acronyms).

In trac.ini add the following section to make the plugin aware of this storage page:

page = Acronyms


The following acronym definition table:

||'''Acronym'''||'''Description'''||'''URL'''||'''ID URL'''||
||RFC||Request For Comment $1||||$1.txt||

Has the following effect:

RFC becomes

    <a href="">
     <acronym title="Request For Comment">

RFC2315 becomes

    <a href="">
     <acronym title="Request For Comment 2315">
      RFC 2315
