New hack ExtractUrlPlugin, created by martin_s

Plug-in to extract URL from TracWiki links in Plug-ins and Macros


This plug-in provides the function extract_url which can be used in Trac plug-ins and macros to extract th URL of any TracWiki link for e.g. generation of links in produced HTML code.


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

The argument raw controls if the returned link should point to a brows-able (False) or download-able (True) target. The second one can be used in image or similar tags.
