My company need to synchronize trac user with an external source of account. The job was made by an ETL but fine tuning of trac user was still done by a our modified version of Trac by clicking on a button on the admin panel that call a well designed API. So instead of manually clik on the button i searched a way to automate it. Unfortunately, i did not find any plugin for this and even if i could use a unix cron task or an windows AT command to plane the task, i thought it would be better done inside Trac process.
So if you have any function for entry point of a process (i mean trac related process) and you want to plane it as a job, Trac Cron Plugin is for you.
Simply create in a module (.py) a class that implement the ICronTask and put it inside plugins directory. Then you can either trick the trac.ini but comfortably use the dedicated admin panel.
