SimpleMultiProjectPlugin

Description

Lets you easily manage multiple projects with one instance of trac. This implements the idea of http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracMultipleProjects/SingleEnvironment.

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

#10074
roadmap page filter for certain projects
#10075
new ticket page needs support for project selection
#10076
timeline page needs support for project filtering (for tickets)
#10085
version selection depending on projects
#10086
version as date on roadmap
#10087
project-related roadmap filtering/grouping: project group boxes on|off
#10088
project-related roadmap filtering/grouping: only milestones vs. only versions
#10089
project-related timeline page filtering of wiki changes
#10090
user-defined field used to define the "project" (e.g. by using component)
#10096
support permission handling
#10119
show project description as project box header on roadmap page
#10152
Localization / translation support (L10N)
#10365
check 1.0 compatibility
#11162
improve project selection widget
#11543
Per-project ticket.default_* settings

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

Example

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):

Source

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

Installation

  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.
    [ticket-custom]
    project = text
    project.label = Project
    project.value =
    
  2. Generate the plugin .egg file from sources
    python setup.py 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
