WikiFormatting for revision links on Trac with multiple repositories

Notice: This plugin is deprecated. In trac:#9570 the functionality was added to Trac 0.12.1.


When multiple repositories are configured, the r123 syntax doesn't enable you to specify the repository and the [changeset:123/repo] or [123/repo] syntax must be used instead. As I do find the r123 syntax more readable, I wrote this small plugin that lets you use 'r123repo' (simply add the repository name right after the changeset number), which is displayed as repo/r123 with a link to the changeset. Parsing repo/r123 syntax isn't possible (AFAIK) as the built-in parser parses the r123 part, so the syntax is r123repo but it displays as repo/r123.

Bugs/Feature Requests

I'm usually at #trac as shsek or shesek. My email is nadav at humaninternals /nospam/ com. You can also leave bug reports as a comment here, as I probably won't follow bug reports on the Trac here.

Existing bugs and feature requests for RepoRevisionSyntaxPlugin are here.

If you have any issues, create a new ticket.


Simply drop the source code as a .py file directly in your plugins directory


from trac.core import *
from import IWikiSyntaxProvider
from genshi.builder import tag

class RepoRevisionSyntax(Component):
    def get_wiki_syntax(self):
        yield ( r'[r#](?P<rev_id>\d+)(?P<repo>[a-zA-Z0-9_\/]+)', self._format_regex_link)
    def get_link_resolvers(self):
    def _format_regex_link(self, formatter, ns, match):
        return tag.a('%s/r%s' % ('repo'),'rev_id')),


Fixed by r78trac (as a ticket comment, for example) would get displayed as Fixed by trac/r78, trac/r78 being a link to the changeset.
