Growl notification dispatcher for Trac events
Growl notification dispatcher for Trac events
- Client configuration
- Bugs/Feature Requests
- Recent Changes
This plugin dispatches change events that occur in a Trac project to Growl-enabled clients.
Growl is a notification system for Mac OS X: it allows applications that support Growl to send you notifications.
This plugin uses remote notifications, using the local network.
The server may run on any OS, such as Linux, OS X, Windows or virtually any other OS that supports Trac.
The plugin does not rely on any 3rd party libraries: no Growl SDK or library is required on the Trac server.
Currently supported event sources:
- Ticket creation, deletion, and update
- Wiki page creation, deletion, and edition
- Attachment creation and deletion
- Bitten build startup, abortion and completion

Build the plugin
As with any other plugin:
python setup.py bdist_egg
Installation of the plugin
Copy the generated egg file (from the
dist/ directory) to your project
plugin directory, or in the global plugin directory if you want to use it for
several Trac projects
Enabling the plugin
From the WebAdmin plugin interface or from your
trac.ini file, enable the
trac.ini, edit the components section to add the revtree entry as
[components] growl.notifier.* = enabled
The growl plugin can be configured with the help of the following settings. The values defined in the following example represent the default values.
[growl] sources = wiki, ticket, attachment, bitten hosts = userprefs = false
sourcesis a comma-separated list of source events.
wikifor wiki events,
ticketfor ticket events,
attachmentfor attachment events
bittenfor bitten build events, only
available if bitten plugin is installed and enabled
hostsis a comma-separated list of network hosts to send notification to
hostsis not defined, the notifications are broadcasted onto the LAN, which could be a security risks in some environments. You'll be warned
userprefsis a boolean option to allow per-user notification settings.
When enabled, any user who's been granted the
GROWL_MODIFY permission may
select which notifications he wishes to receive, and the destination host
which the notifications should be sent to.
The plugin defines two new permissions:
GROWL_MODIFYpermission allows a user to change the notification settings through the Growl plugin perference panel, and choose the destination host for the notifications
GROWL_ADMINgives the same priviledges as
GROWL_MODIFY, and allows the administrator to broadcast notfications to a sub network. To broadcast notifications, the administrator should use the special '<broadcast>` host.
Be warned that there is no restriction on the number of plugin users, which might end up overloading a Trac installation if too many hosts are set to receive various Growl notifications. This plugin is mainly dedicated to small team of users. Please also consider the use of the broadcast feature to reduce the number of notifications sent on every Trac event.
Your Trac-managed information may be at risk if you enable user preferences
userprefs setting) and some random user chooses a host that is located
outside your LAN. Only give
GROWL_MODIFY permission to trusted user.
Moreover, an untrusted user might set up his preferences to notify a foreign, remote host. Please ensure that Growl notifications are not routed outside your own network (UDP:9887) .
You've been warned.
When a user is granted the
GROWL_MODIFY permission, the Growl plugin
preference panel appears under the user preferences view:
A user which is granted the
GROWL_ADMIN permission may select the
special host address to broadcast notifications to all the hosts
on the subnet.
Follow growl installation instructions
Growl should be configured to accept incoming notifications and remote application registration.
- Open Mac OS X system preferences
- Select the Growl icon in the "Other" section
- Select the "Network" pane
- Enable the following check boxes
- Listen for incoming notifications
- Allow remote application registration
- Leave the "Server password" field empty
Growl server passwords are not currently supported.
This plugin is highly experimental (in early development stage)
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
