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)
