A plugin for exporting Wiki pages as raw LaTeX (.tex)


This plugin, like PageToPdfPlugin, uses the new content conversion API in Trac's trunk to export Wiki pages to LaTeX source (.tex). The link appears in the Download in other formats list at the bottom of Wiki pages.

This plugin uses an unstable inheritance hack of Trac's official Wiki Formatter (ticket on Edgewall).

Recent Changes

Added a "patch" against 0.9.6 that I had floating around. 0.10 is doomed to failure and unmaintainability because the formatting logic that does tickets, changesets, etc has been moved out of the wiki Formatter and into plugin logic, hence we cannot override the methods! As at 0.9 this wasn't yet done, but I also haven't added all the "features" from the 0.10 plugin into the "patch" against 0.9.6.

Included is a Makefile -- sudo make install will, after a --dry-run, add and replace in $(PYTHONPATH)/site-packages/trac/wiki then byte-compile.
