Trac Wiki Notification Plugin
Trac Wiki Notification is a plugin that allows users(even anonymous, as long as email is set) to select the wiki pages that they wish to be notified(by email) when a change occurs on it.
You can find more info on the Trac WikiNotification site where bugs and new feature requests should go to.
The http://wikinotification.ufsoft.org/ site is having many problems. It was down and slow and then I cannot post anything, neither from work, nor from home, even after I register and login. Everytime I got the same message with same IP address which was not possible to be same when I did it from work and home.
Submission rejected as potential spam (IP 10.1.0.4 blacklisted by bsb.empty.us, sc.surbl.org)
There is a bug I want to report: When trac is behind the firewall using reverse proxy, the redirect failed as it uses abs_href instead simple href in the web_ui.py file. I removed abs_ and it worked file.
Enabling the Plugin
It's as simple as:
[components] wikinotification.* = enabled
ctxtnavadd.* = enabled
Available Config Options
These are the options available to include on your trac.ini.
|Config Setting||Default Value||Explanation|
|redirect_time||5 (in seconds)||The default seconds a redirect should take when watching/un-watching a wiki page. This value is also definable per user, ie, user is able to configure this, of course for himself.|
|smtp_always_bcc||empty||Email address(es) to always send notifications to, addresses do not appear publicly (Bcc:).|
|smtp_always_cc||empty||Email address(es) to always send notifications to, addresses can be see by all recipients (Cc:).|
|smtp_from||trac.wiki@localhost||Sender address to use in notification emails.|
|use_public_cc||False||Recipients can see email addresses of other CC'ed recipients. If this option is disabled(the default), recipients are put on BCC.|
Download and Installation
Trac WikiNotification can be installed with Easy Install by typing:
> easy_install TracWikiNotification
Some notes for the noobs amongst us:
- easy_install is run from the command line (on Linux) not from within Python.
- After installing any plugin for Trac you'll need to restart Apache to see it (not all changes to trac.ini require a restart but adding a plugin does).
- Make sure to add the new plugin to trac.ini:
[components] ctxtnavadd.* = enabled wikinotification.* = enabled
- Also should be noted that the trac.ini configuration for the wiki notification should look something like:
[wiki-notification] smtp_always_cc = someone@somedomain smtp_from = trac.wiki@localhost
Another note: a user will never get a notice of his/her own wiki modification (which is a little tricky when testing the plugin :))
