Plugin to render burndown SVG

Author: mape th07@…

Links: open # | new # | svn | browse

Description: This component draws customizable burndown graphs from ticket history provided by TimingAndEstimationPlugin. Dynamic graphs can be easily embedded to wiki pages.

Compability: Developed and tested with Trac 0.10.4, Python 2.4, sqlite, mod_python & apache on Windows. Plugin might work also with Trac 0.11.

Dependencies: TimingAndEstimationPlugin is needed to feed database with estimates and totalhours custom tickets. Browser must render SVG natively & support html tag iframe (in case of problems, try Firefox 2)

Feedback: Feel free to give feedback


  1. get source installation & install it
  2. Edit trac.ini and modify components section:
    <...other components...>
    tractimevisualizerplugin.* = enabled
  3. Restart server to propagate changes


To test graphs & filtering, access "http://server:port/path_to_trac_env/tractimevisualizer". It will render hours from whole project life cycle.

More practical is to get graphs from some certain time frame and filter hours based on milestone and/or component. This is achieved with macro BurnDown (ya, I wrote this plugin to replace ScrumBurndownPlugin because its graph was so limiting and I don't like plugins that modify database schema).

In my example project, I have wiki page with following content:



It renders the following graphs (picture is crop to fit better on this page)
