Recently visited pages as navigational bread crumbs

Installation and Configuration


Requires Trac >= 0.11.



The easiest way to install the BreadCrumbsNavPlugin is to simply point easy_install at the t-h.o SVN repository, a la:


Alternatively, you may download the source and go into the 0.11 directory and then run:

 python install

After you have installed the BreadCrumbsNavPlugin, you must enable it. You can do so in the Administration panel of Trac, or in trac.ini by adding:

breadcrumbsnavplugin.* = enabled


There are three options you may set into the trac.ini:

A regular expression pattern that can be applied to the name of the resource; if it matches the resource will not be added to the user's breadcrumbs. Defaults to nothing.
The maximum total 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 /wiki*,/ticket*,/milestone* Note that these really are interpreted as regular expressions, even though the default values look more like shell globs. It seems these default values also match /wik/foo or /tickebar, which might not be the authors intention.

The config entry would look something like the following:

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