Auto-generated acronyms from a table in a Wiki page

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


Automatically generates HTML acronyms from definitions in tables in a Wiki page (AcronymDefinitions by default).

Acronyms are in the form <acronym>[<id>] and are defined in a table with four columns:

Acronym, Description [, URL [, ID URL]]

Only the first two columns are required.

If an <id> is provided, the ID URL is used and any occurrences of the symbol $1 in the description and the ID URL are substituted with the <id>.

Rows starting with ||' are ignored.

Download the zipped source from [download:acronymsplugin here].


You can check out AcronymsPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


Create a Wiki page holding your acronym definitions in the way described above (for example Acronyms).

In trac.ini add the following section to make the plugin aware of this storage page:

page = Acronyms


The following acronym definition table:

||'''Acronym'''||'''Description'''||'''URL'''||'''ID URL'''||
||RFC||Request For Comment $1||||$1.txt||

Has the following effect:

RFC becomes

    <a href="">
     <acronym title="Request For Comment">

RFC2315 becomes

    <a href="">
     <acronym title="Request For Comment 2315">
      RFC 2315
