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


  • Download the source, locate the file in your project's plugin directory or in the global plugins directory, which usually is
  • Components changes:
    • Disable the basic trac component ChangesetModule.
    • Enable the component BranchesTimelineModule.
    • These changes can be done via the WebAdmin interface or by adding the following lines to trac.ini:
      trac.versioncontrol.web_ui.changeset.changesetmodule = disabled
      BranchTimeline.* = enabled


Configure the paths of the branches and trunk directories in trac.ini (if not configured, the paths branches and trunk are used), and the branches that you don't want to display:

branches_path = branches
trunk_path = trunk
undisplayed_branches = branch1, branch2    # Comma separated list of paths relative to branches_path of branches that won't be displayed

After doing that, the timeline page will allow you to filter according to specific branches / trunk.
