more future ideas



Lets you easily manage multiple projects with one instance of trac. This implements the idea of

Experimental version.

You need to define an additional custom ticket field 'project' in your trac.ini, because on creating tickets the milestone combobox shows only milestones appropriately to the chosen project. Furthermore, you can have tickets of certain projects without milestone.

Future Ideas:

  • component selection depending on projects
  • version selection depending on projects
  • project category
  • version as date on roadmap
  • roadmap filtering/grouping of projects:
    • only milestones vs. only versions
    • project group boxes on|off
  • user-defined field used to define the "project" (e.g. by using component)

Technical thoughts

This plugin adds two new tables to the db:

  1. smp_project: a list of all defined projects
  2. smp_milestone_project: the association of milestones to projects


Admin Interface:

Associate a milestone in a project:

Group milestones in the roadmap, and display only projects chosen in the filter box:

display only tickets in the timeline of projects chosen in the filter box (adapted from TimelineComponentFilterPlugin):

Download the zipped source from here.


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


  1. Add a custom ticket field 'project' in your trac.ini to give tickets the information to which project they belong. Milestones selection depends on that as well.
    project = text
    project.label = Project
    project.value =
  2. Generate the plugin .egg file from sources
    python bdist_egg
  3. Copy the plugin to Trac, e.g.
    cp dist/SimpleMultiProject-0.0.1-py2.6.egg /instance_trac/plugins/
  4. Restart Apache. After installation of this plugin Trac needs a database upgrade!
    trac-admin /instance_trac/ upgrade
