Download the zipped source from [download:freedocplugin here].


You can check out FreeDocPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


  1. Download from [download:freedocplugin here] and unzip it
  2. Build like a general egg, for Trac version 0.11 use:
    $ cd freedocplugin/0.11
    $ python bdist_egg
  3. Copy the egg in your plugins by either uploading it using the admin panel. Or copy it on the command line.
  4. Enable in your trac.ini, by adding freedoc.* = enabled to your [components] section. Like this:
    freedoc.* = enabled
  5. Restart/reload your webserver if running some kind of mod_python, mod_fsgi or something like it.
  6. Enjoy!



To link to a certain man page use syntax like sshd(8) or nc(1)

 1. After every colon at the end of the line there will be an automagic return:
   example# have your commands detected and formatted in pre
   of course you could also use the non-root variant:
   example$ echo "{{{ preserve command syntax till end of line }}}";
 1. Use a somehow more simple *bold* tag
  Note: Will alert your readers to be careful by a drawing the attention using a grey box
 1. Linking to file:README or dir:/usr/local/etc will automatically syntax it.

Important: Will draw a big fat warning alerting your users of total disaster
