Version 18 (modified by rjollos, 15 months ago) (diff)

Use the NewsFlashMacro since surrounding text with [[html(<div id="newsflash" style="clear:right">)]] and [[html(</div>)]] doesn't seem to work anymore.

CC selector plugin

Description

This plugin allows "visual" CC field editing.

A pop-up window with bunch of checkboxes is opened, user checks boxes, email addresses are added to and removed from Cc ticket field.

[Comment for the original author: Pretty useless, if you ask me, but my PM team finds this useful.]

ToDo

  • long-term: research reducing JavaScript logic in favor of a more capable Genshi template, or even a JS free plugin implementation

News

18-Nov-2010
add some enhancements and i18n support (open: 0)
13-Nov-2010
changed repository layout, long-standing enhancement (#6266) added to trunk branch (open: 1)
12-Nov-2010
Maintainership handed over from vnaum to hasienda (open: 3 tickets)

JavaScript is required and working with Firefox, Mozilla and Internet Explorer 6. Opera / Safari reports are welcome.

It works with both Trac 0.10, 0.11, and 0.12 (since rev3531). I18n support for Trac >= 0.12 is planned to be added to the 0.11 branch in a backwards-compatible way.

Developer list is fetched from Trac DB. Users who logged in at least once (see session table) and have 'TICKET_VIEW' permission are listed. If you better like "old" variant (hardcoded list in javascript file) for some reason - you should stick with the older release.

Do you need the fixed list option and would like to get it back to an upcoming release?
  • Yes, got stuck with old release because of this
  • Yes, because I badly miss it
  • No, found another solution/like to patch on my own
  • No, don't care/don't need such stuff

  • You don't have permission to vote. You may need to login.

Of course, you can always edit the Cc field without all this hassle - all addresses you entered manually will be shown, too - and can be removed with new, shiny checkboxes.

See AutocompleteUsersPlugin for another way to help with filling the Cc ticket field.

Bugs/Feature Requests

Existing bugs and feature requests for CcSelectorPlugin are here. If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

Download and Source

Download the zipped source, check out using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.

Configuration

Following options have been added to trunk branch recently:

[cc_selector]
show_fullname = true
username_blacklist = user1, 'user 2'

show_fullname

  • default: false
  • Display full names instead of usernames if available.
  • Use case: If most/relevant Trac users prefer full names over usernames aka login/nicknames.

username_blacklist

  • default: '' (empty string)
  • Usernames separated by comma, that should never get listed.
  • Use case: Hide administrator accounts from the default list.

Want drop-down box for "assign to" field?

If you want drop-down box for "assign to" field - it's already in Trac since 0.9. All you have to do is set restrict_owner option in trac.ini like:

[ticket]
restrict_owner = true

This page has more info on this.

Example

A pop-up window with bunch of checkboxes is opened, user checks boxes, email addresses are added and removed to CC field.

About i18n/l10n support

The development version of this plugin is prepared for localization.
But English message texts are still the (POSIX) default. If this isn't your preferred language, you can

  1. look, if it's already available from the Trac plugin l10n project at Transifex or
  2. do it yourself (see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins for more details).

You've done a new translation? Superb! Contributing your translation is highly appreciated.
You could send it to the plugin's maintainer or contribute to Trac plugin l10n project via Transifex:

Top translations: Trac_Plugin-L10N » cc_selector

Kindly provided by http://sw.transifex.net/2/static/charts/images/tx-logo-micro.png

Preparing the plugin from source requires no additional steps for compiling message catalog files. Only to include translations marked as # fuzzy by the translator, you'll want to do a manual message catalog compilation with the extra -f argument before packaging:

cd ccselectorplugin/
python ./setup.py compile_catalog -f
python ./setup.py bdist_egg

Complaints about missing locale directory are often a side-effect of failure to compile any message catalog for inclusion into Python egg, hence the whole path is missing. Due to a know Trac issue Babel has to be installed prior to Trac, to get it all working as expected.
Again, for more details see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins.

CcSelectorPlugin: Apply a bundle of small improvements.

For 10+ selections we add a dedicated close button into the popup window
beneath the list. JS code related to browser compatibility has been
obsoleted by rewriting with jQuery functions. Other changes have been
done mostly due to personal preference of certain coding styles.
