Transform ReST files from repository to HTML

Notice: This plugin is deprecated. IncludeMacro should be used instead.


The ReST Wiki macro translates ReST files hosted on the Subversion repository to HTML snippets. reStructuredText (sometimes abbreviated as RST, ReST, or reST) is a file format for textual data used primarily in the Python programming language community for technical documentation.

It requires one argument, namely the full path of the ReST file to convert:


For example the following could be used to display the file 'design.txt':


The generated HTML will always be kept in sync with the corresponding ReST file in SVN.

The macro uses internal Trac ReST publisher and there's an optional cache system to make it more reliable. To activate it you only have to create a directory named 'rst_cache' in the Trac environment. This directory should be writable by the user running Trac.
