Wiki Extras for Trac


This plugin is made for the upcoming Trac 0.13, and will be updated along with changes to Trac 0.13dev!
(It could work with Trac 0.12, but the visual impression will not be as intended.)

The WikiExtrasPlugin extends the Trac Wiki in several ways:

  • Layout information on wiki pages using boxes. Four wiki processors are defined for creating boxes:
    • box -- The core box processor.
    • rbox -- Display a right aligned box to show side notes and warnings etc. This will probably be the most used box.
    • newsbox -- Display news in a right aligned box. (This box corresponds to the well-known NewsFlashMacro)
    • imagebox -- Display a single image with caption in a centered box.
  • Decorate wiki pages with a huge set of modern icons via wiki markup (|name|), or the equivalent Icon macro, and as smileys (smiley characters are configurable).
  • Decorate wiki text with the Color macro.
  • Automatic highlighting of attentional phrases like FIXME and TODO (configurable).
  • HTML 4.0 entities (named entities and numerical entities). (Same as in WikiGoodiesPlugin)
  • Automatic replacement of common text idioms by their corresponding symbols (e.g. arrows, fractions, etc.) (Same as in WikiGoodiesPlugin, but configurable.)

Each feature can be disabled individually if needed.

Icon Library License Terms

The icon library contained in this plugin is composed of the Fugue icon library with additional icons, and can be used for any commercial or personal projects, but you may not lease, license or sublicense the icons. The icon library is provided for convenience, though download and installation time is taking a hit since it contains more than 3.000 unique icons in two flavors; shadowed and shadowless (yielding a grand total of almost 7.000 icon files).

The Fugue icon library is released under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license.
Some icons are Copyright (C) Yusuke Kamiyamane. All rights reserved.

Additional icons are released under same license terms as Trac.
Some icons are Copyright (C) Edgewall Software. All rights reserved.
