Integrate GTK-Doc documentation pages into Trac


This plugin integrates gtkdoc books into Trac's interface. This is accomplished by displaying the actual html output of gtkdoc, as well as integrating into the search engine in Trac. GTK-Doc generates API documentation from comments added to C code, but can also be used to document other application code such as Python.

This plugin implements the following new user permissions:

  • GTKDOC_SEARCH: search in the API documentation
  • GTKDOC_VIEW: view the API documentation
  • GTKDOC_ADMIN: allows the addition and removal of API documentation books

As mentioned above the admin_interface provides an interface for adding and removing books. Books are keyed on a name given to them at the time they are added, as well as an absolute path on the local filesystem of where the book actually is. This way, you can update the documentation (with rsync for example) and not have to touch a thing in Trac.
