Git Plugin for Trac

Description

This is yet another plugin for Trac 0.10/0.11 which enables GIT to be used instead of Subversion for the trac:VersioningSystemBackend

Features

  • Browsing source code in a Git repository via the TracBrowser
  • Viewing the change history of a file or directory using TracRevisionLog
  • Performing diffs between any two files or two directories
  • Displaying submitted changes in the TracTimeline (0.11)
  • (Optionally) caching TracChangeset information in Trac's database (0.11)
  • Caching Git commit relation graph in memory (0.11)
  • Using the TracSearch page to search change descriptions (0.11)
  • Interpretation of 40-character wide hex-strings as sha1 commit checksums
  • ...

Bugs/Feature Requests

As this is for now just a proof of concept implementation, it has quite some deficiencies, some of which exist as tickets already:

No results

...and other potential issues which aren't ticket-tracked yet:

  • does not highlight sha1sums automatically
  • will only work with filenames not containing newlines
  • ...

Existing bugs and feature requests for GitPlugin are here.

If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

Download

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

Source

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

(An experimental branch of this plugin with a hacky caching feature and some bug fixes is available from here.)

Configuration

Simply point your Trac instance to a local git repository:

[trac]
repository_dir = /var/git/Test.git
repository_type = git

## the following is only for the 0.11 branch
[git]
## let Trac cache meta-data via CachedRepository wrapper
cached_repository = true

## disable automatic garbage collection for in-memory commit-tree cache
persistent_cache = true

/!\ NOTE: the Test.git above needs to be the .git repository directory (i.e. the one containing the file HEAD and config), not the working tree directory that holds the .git/ folder.

If installed globally, don't forget to enable the plugin:

[components]
gitplugin.* = enabled
