command line interface to obvious trac things

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


traccmd is a simple interface to the most obvious trac functions:

  • reading wiki pages
  • editing wiki pages
    • from the shell, commit message style
  • reading tickets or ticket attributes
  • creating tickets
  • updating ticket attributes

Everything is done via xmlrpc, the xmlrpc support must be enabled.

We use traccmd at WooMe to script releases and help build release candidates.


An wrapper for editing wiki pages directly inside emacs is also included, tho this is a little rough.

= The Trac User and Administration Guide =

The TracGuide is meant to serve as a starting point for all documentation regarding Trac usage and development. The guide is a free document, a collaborative effort, and a part of the [ Trac Project] itself.

== Table of Contents ==
Currently available documentation:
 * TracGuide (This page)  -- Documentation starting point.

A more complex example is the use in a release candidate maker where a number of repos in a distributed revision control system are pulled together to make an rc: ticket $TICKETS \
  | sed -rne 's,^([0-9]+).*[^h](http(s)*://[^] ]+).*,\1 \2,p' \
  | awk '{print $2}' \
  | xargs hg in 

shows incomming patches from hg repos mentioned in $TICKETS.
