If you have any issues, check existing bugs and feature requests for DataSaverPlugin
and take care of closed tickets as well.
In case this is a new issue, you're welcome to create a new ticket.
Patches welcome in favor of complete files, in case you have already developed some better code. Include version, if patch is not against current stable release or trunk development version.
Download the zipped source from here.
Do your normal Trac plugin install. If you are taking the install-into-Python route, add to your trac.ini:
[components] datasaver.* = enabled
Suppose you write a lengthy wiki page, but accidentally hit refresh or the back button? You'd be out of luck most of the time. I know I was. But with this hack, a link called "Restore Form" will allow you to retrieve your data from your last save. Any time you navigate away from a form page, the contents will be saved in a cookie and when you return you can simply click "Restore Form" to retrieve it.
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
- look, if it's already available from the Trac plugin l10n project at Transifex or
- do it yourself (see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins for more details).
Top translations: Trac_Plugin-L10N » datasaver
Preparing the plugin from source requires the additional step of compiling message catalog files. This will be done automatically by invoking a suitable Babel install. Walk through:
cd datasaver python ./setup.py compile_catalog -f python ./setup.py bdist_egg
Step 2 is almost obsolete, and only needed to include translations marked as # fuzzy by the translator, since the compilation before packaging will do message catalog compilation compile only without the extra -f argument. Again, for more details see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins.
Just some improved i18n code missing for this plugin, done elsewhere before.
