Provides forms anywhere where there is a wiki

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin allows you to add a form on any Trac wiki page. This is meant to provide a more flexible version of TracFormsPlugin. For a comparison between the two plugins, see here.

This plugin can be used in the following ways:

# keep in mind that 
#  - comments are removed
#  - newlines are replaced with '' (empty string)
# prior to parsing. After all those the preformatting the 
# fields still have to be separated by whitespace to be distinguishable.
# Further cfg-options are:
#   default 
#   class
#   id
value0                            # label = value
 'v a l u e 1'                    # label = value, both containing whitespace

 :                                # separator, from now on everything becomes a selector-list entry even if the name matches a cfg-option
</tf>                                                                      || <tf>value:complex_select</tf>

Normal wiki formatted stuff...

New Include Feature

Let's assume you have a wiki page named 'sandbox':





({{ c }})


If you call it like this:

[[WikiFormInclude(sandbox:a=1 b=2 c=' " ' d='a b c d')]]

all defined values are replaced and the resulting page is rendered as usual.

New Permission Feature

Think of an example like this:

region1 rw r /
region2 rw / /
region3 / / r

<f>permission:change:                                            # default access is none                          </f>
<f>permission:change: +rw     : user in admin_user1,admin_user2  # admin user gets additionally read/write access  </f>
<f>permission:change: +r      : user in user1 , user2            # normal user get additionally read access        </f>
<f>permission:alias : region1                                    # save this as permission for region 1            </f>

<f>permission:change:                                            # default access is none                          </f>
<f>permission:change: +rw     : user in admin_user1,admin_user2  # admin user gets read/write access               </f>
<f>permission:alias : region2                                    # save this as permission for region 2            </f>

<f>permission:change:  r                                         # default access is read                          </f>
<f>permission:change: -r      : user in admin_user1,admin_user2  # admin user should not see default message       </f>
<f>permission:change: -r      : user in user1 , user2            # normal user should not see default message      </f>
<f>permission:alias : region3                                    # save this as permission for region 3            </f>

<f>checkbox:approval1</f>  This is region 1 (rw for admin-user, r for normal-user, hidden for others)

<f>checkbox:approval2</f>  This is region 2 (rw for admin-user, hidden for normal-user and others)

<f>checkbox:approval3</f>  This is region 3 (hidden for admin- and normal-user, r for others)

Permissions might be based on the state of a ticket or milestone like this:


<f>permission:change:-w:ticket_state 42 in closed         # ticket with id=42 has to exist!    </f>

|| <f>checkbox:approval:checked=true</f>                             || (read-only if #42 is in closed state)
|| <f>input:comment:value='Please fill in your comment' size=50</f>  || (read-only if #42 is in closed state)

<f>permission:change:-w:milestone_is_complete 'my next milestone'   # milestone with name='my next milestone' has to exist!              </f> 

<f>checkbox:approval:checked=true</f>  (read-only if milestone is completed)

New Notification feature

Sometimes users want to be informed via email if a form is updated, eg when form is at review checklist.

The new notify-tag supports this:

<tf>notify:mail_to="comma separated list of mail addresses to be notified" subject="subject of notification e-mail"    body="optional information included into the notification e-mail"</tf>

A real life example: The svn-post-commit hook appends the following review checklist call to the check-in comment:

[[WikiFormInclude(checklists/commit_review/v1:mail_to=foo@bar revision=r1234)]]

The called checklist contains the following notify-tag:

<tf>notify:mail_to={{mail_to}} subject="Commit Review {{revision}} Updated"</tf>
