Toggle sending Announcer emails


This plugin provides a link (in the contextual nav) to toggle on and off sending emails for your ticket changes. The purpose is to reduce superfluous emails for changes the author deems unworthy.

This plugin is dependent upon the Announcer plugin (which must already be installed) and Javascript. The toggling is handled via ajax so you can remain on the same page and not disrupt any current work. The toggle link will appear on /newticket, /ticket, /query, and /report pages since ticket changes are possible on all of these (e.g., via BatchModify or GridModify).


  1. Install the plugin (after downloading and unzipping):
    cd quietplugin/0.12
    sudo python install

See TracPlugins for more installation details and options. You'll likely need to restart Trac's web server after installation.

  1. Enable the plugin and disable announcer.distributors.mail.EmailDistributor in trac.ini:
    announcer.* = enabled
    announcer.distributors.mail.EmailDistributor = disabled
    quiet.* = enabled

You can alternatively use the Trac Web Admin GUI. The above is because the quietplugin provides its own email distributor which effectively wraps the announcer's EmailDistributor with an extra check to see if the user entered quiet mode or not.

  1. (Optional) Customize the quiet mode labels:
    enter_label = Enter Quiet Mode
    leave_label = Leave Quiet Mode

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


I'll enter quite mode during planning so that moving large batches of tickets from one milestone to the next doesn't trigger a barrage of emails.
