Add a pastebin component to Trac


Adds a basic pastebin functionality to a webpage.

For some screenshots have a look at the attachments. But note that they are taken on my test trac installation with a heavily modified theme.

The TracPastePlugin provides several features:

  • Paste events are shown in the timeline
  • paste TracLinks

Several additional features have been proposed:

Bloodhound compatibilty

Since version 0.2.3 users may enable BloodhoundPaste component in order to get a new user interface powered by Twitter Bootstrap and compatible with Apache(TM) Bloodhound .

    or: easy_install
  3. Enable it through WebAdmin or by editing trac.ini: [components] tracpaste.* = enabled

  5. Restart web server
  6. Add the permissions PASTEBIN_VIEW, PASTEBIN_CREATE, PASTEBIN_DELETE and PASTEBIN_ADMIN that you'd like your users to have.
