Page2DocBook - Export wiki pages as docbook documents

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin allows you to export the wiki pages of your Trac project in the DocBook format. DocBook is a semantic markup language for technical documentation. DocBook files are used to prepare output files in a wide variety of formats using DocBook stylesheets. These are XSLT stylesheets that transform DocBook documents into a number of formats (HTML, XSL-FO for later conversion into PDF, etc).

There is a companion Python script that retrieves all the DocBook files for a given set of wiki pages. It saves the DocBook files to the local computer, along with any attached image files, making them ready for processing. Please see GitHub's DocBook pages for more information.

This script is currently mostly undocumented, but I believe it is simple enough to be easily understood.


You can check out Page2DocbookPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


This plugin was tested with Trac versions 0.10 and 0.11. Please ensure the following Python modules are installed before installing this plugin:

  • python-uTidyLib (note: if you are using a 64-bit OS, you may need this fork)
  • python-libxml2
  • python-libxslt

General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.

After installing, a new alternative format should appear on the bottom of each wiki page, next to the "Plain Text" link.
