paste template to create a trac plugin skeleton


this package enables the creation of a trac plugin skeleton for ease of starting developing a new plugin via a PasteScript Template. it doesn't provide much flesh....just putting the right entry point and getting names setup in the created files.

For more about PasteScript see

Bugs/Feature Requests

Existing bugs and feature requests for TracPluginTemplateScript are here.

If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

This is a pretty bare-bones (pun intended) template. If anyone would like it to do more, please let me know. Patches encouraged! If you want to submit patches, please read the patch submission guidelines.


Download the zipped source from [download:tracplugintemplatescript here].


You can check out TracPluginTemplateScript from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


After the package is installed, the template should be listed among the options for paster:

$ paster create --list-templates
Available templates:
  basic_package:  A basic setuptools-enabled package
  paste_deploy:   A web application deployed through paste.deploy
  trac_plugin:    a plugin skeleton for trac

To create a plugin called Foo (the class name of the Component will be FooPlugin by default), run:

$ paster create -t trac_plugin Foo

paster will then ask you about details for the description, author name, and other details. You will then have a skeleton for your new plugin Foo that you may now edit and implement.
