Settings Plugin for easy handling of a bunch of configuration data


Provides extension for trac-admin for easy removing unneeded milestones, components, etc. and setting a bunch of config options from a file.

Extends command trac-admin with some more commands:

  • component removeall <pattern>: Remove all components with a specific pattern
  • permission removeall <user_pattern>: Remove all permissions with a specific pattern for users
  • milestone removeall <pattern>: Remove all milestones with a specific pattern
  • version removeall <pattern>: Remove all versions with a specific pattern
  • ticket_type removeall <pattern>;: Remove all ticket_types with a specific pattern
  • priority removeall <pattern>;: Remove all priorities with a specific pattern
  • config setall <path/to/file>: Set all config options from file to trac.ini
  • plugin replace <plugin_name>: Replaces plugin(s) with plugin name (without version)
  • plugin replaceall: Replaces all (!) plugins (dangerous!)

Pattern can have wildcards (%).
