CombineWikiModule Does Not Work with Trac 0.11dev-r6079
|Reported by:||Joseph Armbruster||Owned by:||Noah Kantrowitz|
Quite some time ago I had quickly put together an internal wiki for my organization using Trac 0.11dev-r6079. Recently, we had the desire to export pages (and possible sets of pages) to PDF. I ran into two plugins of interest: pagetopdf and combinewiki. I know little to nothing about developing plugins with trac, or trac development in general. I noticed that out-of-the-box, the combinewiki plugin did not function. Since i'm mildly familiar with python I took a stab at making it work. Right or wrong, here's what I did:
- built html doc from source [htmldoc-1.9.x-r1586.zip] and installed as dictated in the compile.txt file
- added the following to my trac.ini:
[components] ... combinewiki.* = enabled
[pagetopdf] size = A4 charset = iso-8859-15
- sinec TracWebAdmin no longer existed I attempted to hack web_ui.py:
#from webadmin.web_ui import IAdminPageProvider from trac.admin import IAdminPanelProvider
#def get_admin_pages(self, req): def get_admin_panels(self, req):
- noticed that the htmldoc tool was not completing correctly, so I had to add the following line to formats.py. I did not add this as an argument to htmldoc_args, since it needs to be at the end of the command string...
cmd_string = 'htmldoc %s %s -f %s'%(args_string, ' '.join(files), pfilename) cmd_string += ' --webpage'
I have made it this far, and I now get pdf output (albeit, not with a .pdf extension). All the exported PDFs are blank. I traced this into the process_combinewiki call and i'm still digging for now.
Since I haven't actually seen this plugin work, here's a quick question:
In my "Combine Wiki" Administration page, There is a "All Pages" list to the left hand side... It looks as if pages are suppose to be selected and moved to some right hand side table but I don't see anything there. When I click the right hand arrow, nothing happens. I'm going to investigate this now as well.
I'm certain most of these issues are a result of my ignorance of trac internals and plugin development. If anyone has any additional insight, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You in advance, Joseph Armbruster
