SubWiki macro: (reversed) alphabetical sort order

Reported by: jholg Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: HierWikiPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Sort order of the SubWiki macro doesn't seem to be alphabetical for me, at least not like I'm used to Python ordering strings. This can be easily enforced by using sorted().

Plus, I'd like to reverse the sort order, to have pages that contain timestamp-like parts in their name show up with the latest one on top, e.g.

  • subpages/2008-06-13
  • subpages/2008-06-11
  • ...

Patch attached that enforces alphabetical order and adds an optional 3rd argument reverse.

Btw I'm running 0.11b2 and the SubWiki macro seems to run without problems for me.

reversible alphabetical order in SubWiki macro

comment:1 Changed 7 years ago by jholg

I've adapted my patch to add an optional 'reverse' parameter to reverse sort order to r9404, respecting the new style parameter, both for the 0.11 and 0.12 macro versions. I haven't bothered with the <= 0.10 versions.

The patch also adds documentation to the previously pretty much undocumented level and style parameters:

   Inserts an alphabetic list of sub-wiki pages into the output.
    A sub-wiki page is a page that is is deeper in the hierachy than the current page.
 e.g. if the current page is People, the this will return a list of all wiki entries th
at start with "People/"

    prefix: optional prefix string. If provided, only pages with names that
        start with the prefix are included in the resulting list. If this
        parameter is omitted, all pages are listed.
    level: optional, how many 'levels' to go down in hierarchy (default:
        0 i.e. unrestricted)
    style: optional output style parameter (default: 1). Possible styles:
        0: pagename, title
        1: short pagename, title
        2: title
        3: pagename
        4: short pagename
    reverse: optional boolean parameter, reverse page sorting (default: False)

Note that I've only been able to test with Trac 0.11 (0.11.7) but these are the only 0.11/0.12 differences in the patched files:

$ diff hierwikiplugin/0.11/hierwiki/macros/ hierwikiplugin/0.12/hierwiki/macros/ 
<         self.good_pages.sort()
<         # 0.11 supports Python 2.3 which has no .sort(reverse=True) keyword arg
<         if self.reverse:
<             self.good_pages.reverse()
>         self.good_pages.sort(reverse=self.reverse

Forgot to mention that attachment:hierwikiplugin_subwiki_reverse_order.diff also fixes the erroneous parameter handling (must check for 'None' rather than None).
