Add ticket keywords from a configured list


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 before.

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

With default Trac only tickets can have keywords. However, if the TagsPlugin is loaded, then TracKeywordsPlugin will also supports its tags for wiki pages.
