Download

Download the zipped source from here.

This macro must be installed as a plugin. To do so, change the directory to macrochainmacro/0.11 (if running trac 0.11 or 0.12) or macrochainmacro/0.9 (if running trac 0.9 or 0.10), run python setup.py bdist_egg and copy the resulting dist/macrochain-0.X-pyY.Z.egg to your plugins directory.

Source

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

Example

The following mimicks the MimeInclude macro:

[[MacroChain(Include(http://www.example.com/), text/html)]]

This uses the CsvMacro to display a csv file from the repository as a table:

[[MacroChain(Include(trunk/foo/bar.csv), CsvMacro)]]

The following uses the XsltMacro and GraphvizPlugin to create a graph of some xml data:

[[MacroChain(Xslt(graph.xslt, doc.xml), graphviz.dot)]]
