Chart of upcoming milestones macro


When Trac is used to manage many projects, it is useful to get a dashboard overview of all milestone dates in the Trac instances. This macro automatically generates such a chart.

Key features:

  • Overdue dates can be displayed colored.
  • The milestone chart is sorted by date.
  • You can set a filter which milestones are displayed by setting an SQL-like pattern.
