Extract URL from Trac wiki links in plugins and macros


This plugin provides the function extract_url, which can be used in Trac plugins and macros to extract the URL of any TracWiki link, for example generation of links in produced HTML code.

The definition of this plugin is as follows:

from tracextracturl import extract_url
# ...
  url = extract_url (env, context, wikilink, raw=False)

The optional argument raw controls whether the returned link should point to a brows-able (False) or download-able (True) target. The value True can be used in image or similar tags. False is the default value.

As an example you could have this:

from tracextracturl import extract_url

def MyMacro(WikiMacroBase):
  def expand_macro (self, formatter, name, content):
     # e.g. wikilink = 'wiki:WikiStart'
     url = extract_url(self.env, formatter.context, wikilink)
