Draw mind maps using wiki list syntax


This macro can be used to include mind maps into wiki pages and other wiki-enabled Trac elements. The mind maps are displayed using a flash application.

Two input methods are supported:

  1. the normal macro form awaits a TracLink (e.g. to a Freemind file.
  2. the long form reads and converts a wiki lists into a Freemind mindmap and displays it.

This version was written for Trac 0.11 and also works for 0.12.

See also the similar FreemindMacro.


A. Macro Form



[[MindMap(<any other TracLink>,width=60%,height=400px)]]

[[MindMap(<anything else which returns a link inside a Trac Wiki>,width=60%,height=400px)]]
