!WikiEditor4Eclipse is a new plug-in providing Trac Wiki editing capabilities to Eclipse IDE.

Implemented Features:

  • Trac Wiki Servers explorer
  • Eclipse Wiki Editor: currently, it borrows the editor from the original EclipseTracPlugin plugin.
  • Wiki Page management: Creation, edition and page deletion.
  • Concurrent edition management:
    • Prevents overwriting other users changes when a concurrent edit happens.
    • Helps merge contents when a concurrent edit happens.

Future development:


!WikiEditor4Eclipse features a Wiki Editor as an Eclipse plugin that communicates with Trac wiki server through the XmlRpcPlugin. It requires the following software to be installed:


  • [download:eclipsetracplugin/tracrpcext/0.10 TracRpcExt] (optional): !WikiEditor4Eclipse reuses TracRpcExt plugin from EclipseTracPlugin to provide a page history view. This dependency is optional as the editor can work without it, but if its not installed and enabled you will miss page history functionality.



  • Wiki Editor Perspective:


  • Merging conflicting changes

In order to build !WikiEditor4Eclipse you will need the following software:

  • Subversion client
  • Java JDK >= 1.5
  • Tycho maven plugin (tested with version 0.3.0-DEV-1819)
  • Eclipse SDK >= 3.2 (tested with version 3.4.2)

You can build the plugin running the following commands on the command line:

svn co WikiEditor4Eclipse
cd WikiEditor4Eclipse
/opt/tycho-distribution-0.3.0-DEV-1819/bin/mvn \
 -Dtycho.targetPlatform=/opt/eclipse/eclipse-SDK-3.4.2 \
 clean install -Dmaven.test.skip
