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


Add application/x-freemind:mm to the mime_map list in your project's trac.ini. This enables Trac to render mindmaps when previewing attachments.

Also add an entry to the components section of the trac.ini file:

mime_map = application/x-freemind:mm

freemind.* = enabled

To render mindmaps when previewing them while browsing your SVN repository, you'll need an svn:mime-type on the file.

$ svn propset svn:mime-type application/x-freemind
$ svn ci


If it appears you cannot view mindmaps from different domains, then this might be a Flash issue. For an example, download the file and save it into your projects' htdocs directory and use as follows:


Normally you will access mindmaps from your SVN repository:

[[Freemind(source://trunk/docs/, width=1024px, height=768px)]]

You can access your mindmaps as follows:
    directly from the web, doesn't seem to work!

    from your project's htdocs.

    from a plugin's htdocs.

    from an attachment on ticket #123.

    from an attachment on a wiki page.

    from your SVN repository revision [1024], you can also use HEAD as your revision.
