Download the zipped source from here.


You can clone MultiRepoSearchPlugin from here using Git, or browse the source with Github.


To install:

pip install -r requirements.txt
python develop

Alternatively, to install using easy_install on Ubuntu 11.10 Server:

sudo easy_install
sudo easy_install

Add to your conf/trac.ini file:

multireposearch.* = enabled

Upgrade your Trac environment:

trac-admin path/to/env upgrade

Prepare all available repositories with an initial indexing:

trac-admin path/to/env multireposearch reindex_all

Users with REPO_SEARCH and/or TRAC_ADMIN permissions will now be able to perform text searches of repository contents through the Trac search UI.


As long as you have your Trac post-commit or post-receive hooks properly configured, the source will remain up-to-date.

Otherwise, to manually reindex a single repository, you can run:

trac-admin path/to/env multireposearch reindex repo-name

Where repo-name is the name assigned to your repository in Trac.

Usage notes

  • To search for a string containing double quotes, enclose the whole string in single quotes. E.g. 'draft="true"'.
