Add ticket keywords from a configured list

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin allows you to add entries to the Keywords entry field from a configured list of keywords by clicking on them. Allows you to set a description for every keyword, which is shown as a tip when you hover the mouse over the keyword from "Add keywords" section.

From the "Add keywords" section:

  1. click once on any of the keywords you want to be filled-in into "Keywords" field;
  2. to remove a keyword click again on it.

You can also continue to manually add other keywords which weren't listed.

To maintain keywords, edit the [keywords] section in your trac.ini file.
