Integrate UML diagrams with Trac


WebSequenceDiagram is a plug-in for integrating UML sequence diagrams from Web Sequence Diagrams in Trac wiki pages. It can be found here.

This is not my own hack! I was looking for a UML sequence diagramming tool that integrates with Trac and finally stumbled upon this one months after I started looking. There was not a Trac Hacks page, so I thought it would be worthwhile to add one.

Installation via Source

The installation of the sequence diagram plugin from source is done by creating a Python egg distribution file and copying the .egg file to the Trac plugins directory. Detailed information on Python eggs can be found at: In addition, the Easy Install package is required to create Python eggs. See for more information on using and installing Easy Install.

Change to the download directory and run:

python bdist_egg

This will generate a python egg in the dist directory. Copy the egg file into the trac/plugins directory and follow the Configuration steps outlined below.

Configuration (trac.ini)

To enable the plugin::

[components] sequencediagram.* = enabled

Optionally you can specify a style for the sequence diagram by adding a sequence diagram section to the trac.ini file:

[sequencediagram] style = rose


An example usage::

Alice->Bob: Authentication Request
note right of Bob: Bob thinks about it.
Bob-->Alice: Authentication Response
