huh, I'll have to look into that.

I noticed the other day it wasn't picking the right pictures, that icanhascheezburger.com changed their layout again, but if it's not working at all, that's a problem.

I see you're on trac 0.11.6. I'm only at 11.3 so that might be the difference.

Ok, I see the problem. I really should make an installer or something for this. I've just used it as a class to copy/paste into your existing macros.

It's obviously not going to work without

from trac.wiki.macros import WikiMacroBase


Who knows what else it's missing right now.

I had to add these lines to the script to make it work with newer versions of trac.

from trac.wiki.macros import WikiMacroBase
from genshi.builder import tag

Looks like we need some way to parse up that page to retrieve the image. There are a bunch of images on the page so I don't see a simple way to do this.

comment:8 Changed 7 years ago by Brian

For a while they were using particular attributes In the HTML for the actual cat images. But I haven't seen that page in months to know what it looks like now. (iPhone apps spoil me, plus I'm responding on mine now anyway. :) ). Call it dead if you must. Maybe in the future I can take another stab at it.

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by Ryan J Ollos

If you have time to look at the page and determine how we can locate the image or video, I'm happy to update the code. In the meantime, I'll add a note to the main page noting that it's broken.

For now, it looks like it's fixable (but I have no means for testing to try). All of the pictures have alt text that starts with "funny pictures-".

The source looks like this:

<img src='http://icanhascheezburger.files.wordpress/<image_location_and_name>' title="<title>" alt="funny pictures-<text>" />

So it shouldn't be TOO bad to parse the html for 'alt="funny pictures-' to pull out the .jpg on those lines.

Instead of trying to dissect the HTML for the home page, wouldn't it be easier to pull the data from the RSS feed?

The feed should be in a more consistent format, plus there's less extraneous information to have to worry about.

I don't develop plugins for Trac anymore. You're more than welcome to re-write the plugin.
