#5336 new enhancement

Use Trac Reports as source for charts

Reported by: scratcher Owned by: aviram
Priority: normal Component: TicketChartsMacro
Severity: trivial Keywords: reports charts
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


It would be great to use a report from Trac as data provider for chart. Currently a lot of things could be done via reports but not available in queries. I believe that future versions of Trac will contain sophisticated query mechanisms, but so far reports are irreplaceable.

You are correct. When I started writing this plugin, I've written it with another parameter - report. I have not implemented this due to lack of time (this isn't a minor change; this can be pretty significant). If you want to implement this, write to me here, and I'll give you some initial directions about how this should be done.

Can you give some of the directions on the parameter, and on how to implement this? It would be a very useful option.

To be honest, the last time I worked on a Trac plugin was back then, and I pretty much forgot... What I can tell you is, that although reports and queries are quite the same - they're not implemented quite the same. Reports are (obviously) stored in Trac's database, and you can get the information out of there. From what I remember, the thing that makes it hard to implement reports for my macros, is that the operators of the query (i.e. &, |) are stored differently. The format is quite different...
