Download and Source

While the branch name suggests the corresponding Trac version, 0.11 should work equally well for Trac 0.11, 0.12 and Trac 1.0 (current stable).

Stable Version easy_install download subversion
Under Development easy_install download subversion

For Subversion checkout use svn co <url> with URL depending on your Trac version and target release (see links above).



This plugin requires Trac >= 0.11 and Genshi >= 0.5 .

The easiest way to install this plugin is to point easy_install at the t-h.o SVN repository:


Alternatively, you may download the source, go into the directory containing and run:

python install

or prepare a packaged version and move that into the plugin directory inside your Trac environment:

python bdist_egg
cp ./dist/BreadCrumbsNav-<version> <path-to-trac-env>/plugins/

If you are using tracd standalone server or another webserver, you will probably need to restart it to detect the plugin.

Depending on your configuration you may still need to enable the plugin explicitly. You can do so in the Administration panel of Trac, or in the trac.ini file by adding:

breadcrumbsnav.* = enabled


There are 4 options that can be set in your trac.ini file for this plugin:

ignore_pattern =
label =
max_crumbs = 6
paths = /wiki/,/ticket/,/milestone/


A regular expression pattern that can be applied to the name of the resource; if it matches the resource, it will not be added to the user's breadcrumbs. Defaults to nothing.
A custom label to replace the implicit "Breadcrumbs:" default value. Beware that this will interfere with i18n, maybe even deprecated by it.
The maximum number of crumbs that should be kept per-user. Defaults to 6.
A comma-separated list of regular expressions, one of which should match the beginning of the url to include the resource in the path. Defaults to the path /wiki*,/ticket*,/milestone*. Note that these paths are interpreted as regular expressions, even though the default values look like shell globs. It seems these default values also match /wiki/foo or /ticketbar, which might not be the author's intent.
