Calendar view of Milestones and Tickets
Macro for the Trac Wiki to display Milestones and Tickets from the Ticketing system in a calendar view. The original version of the macro was hosted here.

Available versions are compatible with Trac 0.11, 0.12 and even the old 0.10 (depreciated/unmaintained, security concerns - see #7239). Get it, enjoy and report back, please.
Download the zipped source from [download:wikiticketcalendarmacro here].
Look at the code and just save a file with the Trac repository browser:
1 Note: The 0.11 single-file macro install is significantly smaller than the Python egg with translations,
and there's no visible difference to the genuine 0.12 version, as long as you don't use localization for Trac 0.12.
Historically the macro code was activated for a long time by
[components] WikiTicketCalendarMacro.* = enabled
and that is still correct for the 0.11 branch.
The new versions from 0.12 and trunk branch with i18n support have a different code structure due to packaging.
See i18n/l10n section for an important hint on egg creation. The statement required for activation has changed as well:
[components] wikiticketcalendar.* = enabled
See download section on how to activate your version.
The invocation for the screenshot above is [[WikiTicketCalendar(*,*,true,Wochenberatung/%Y-%m-%d,true,Beratung)]].
Excerpt of the source documentation:
Simple Usage ------------ [[WikiTicketCalendar([year,month,[showbuttons,[wiki_page_format, [show_ticket_open_dates,[wiki_page_template, [query_expression,[list_condense,[cal_width]]]]]]]])]] Arguments --------- year, month = display calendar for month in year ('*' for current year/month) showbuttons = true/false, show prev/next buttons wiki_page_format = strftime format for wiki pages to display as link (if exist, otherwise link to create page) default is "%Y-%m-%d", '*' for default show_ticket_open_dates = true/false, show also when a ticket was opened wiki_page_template = wiki template tried to create new page list_condense = ticket count limit to switch off ticket summary display cal_width = set calendar table 'min-width', and optionally 'width' for surrounding div triggered by prepending '+' to value Advanced Use ------------ [[WikiTicketCalendar([nav=(0|1)],[wiki=<strftime-expression>], [cdate=(0|1)],[base=<wiki_page_template>],[query=<TracQuery-expr], [short=<integer-value>],[width=[+]<valid-CSS-size>])]] - equivalent keyword-argument available for all but first two arguments - mixed use of keyword-arguments with simple arguments permitted, but strikt order of simple arguments (see above) still applies while keyword-arguments in-between do not count for that positional mapping, - query evaluates a valid TracQuery expression based on any ticket field including multiple expressions grouped by 'and' and 'or' Examples -------- [[WikiTicketCalendar(2006,07)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(2006,07,false)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(*,*,true,Meeting-%Y-%m-%d)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(2006,07,false,Meeting-%Y-%m-%d)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(2006,07,true,*,true)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(2006,07,true,Meeting-%Y-%m-%d,true,Meeting)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(wiki=Talk-%Y-%m-%d,base=Talk)]] equivalent to [[WikiTicketCalendar(*,*,true,Talk-%Y-%m-%d,true,Talk)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(wiki=Meeting-%Y-%m-%d,query=type=task&owner=wg1)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(wiki=Meeting_%Y/%m/%d,short=6)]] [[WikiTicketCalendar(*,*,true,Meeting-%Y%m%d,width=+75%;)]]

- a heavily modified version used as event calendar, source unknown
All maintained versions of this plugin support keyword arguments and mixed use of both - simple and keyword arguments - as well. This could make macro invocations more readable and maybe even shorter than before, as long as you largely stick to the defaults and just want to change one or two values. So i.e. the 3rd example from above could be rewritten now as:
Supported keywords are (with default values here):
nav=1 same as 'showbuttens' wiki="%Y-%m-%d" same as 'wiki_page_format', supports any expression that strftime can handle cdate=1 same as 'show_ticket_open_dates' draft="" same as 'wiki_page_template' query="id!=0" see below short=0 same as 'list_condense', total ticket count per day, that'll have ticket list display condensed to just ticket no., 0 = never condense list width=100%; same as 'cal_width', check '+' prefixed values, if you need more forceful width definition
The query keyword supports any expression supported by TracQuery. This is the single new ticket selection logic that can use custom field values as well as expressions chained by AND (OR since 0.12 only). An invalid expression was chosen on purpose to select and show all tickets by default. Use your own query expression to create per-developer or per-component ticket calendars, or you could choose to display tickets only with high/highest priority, tickets with some special content in a custom field, etc.
The plugin optionally makes use of an own configuration section, that could be placed into 'trac.ini' as follows:
[wikiticketcalendar] ticket.due_field.name = due_close ticket.due_field.format = %y-%m-%d
Again these are the implicit default values to give backwards compatible behaviour.
Real configuration examples:
[wikiticketcalendar] ticket.due_field.name = due-date ticket.due_field.format = %m/%d/%Y
- for a custom due date field named 'due-date' that holds
- US style date with 4-digit year
[wikiticketcalendar] ticket.due_field.name = due_date ticket.due_field.format = ts
- for a custom due date field named 'due_date' that holds
- true POSIX microsecond timestamps (see: custom time fields proposal)
About i18n/l10n support
The 0.12 branch of this plugin is prepared for localization (tooltip customization in calendar navigation).
But English message texts are still the (POSIX) default. If this isn't your preferred language, you can
- look, if it's already available from the Trac plugin l10n project at Transifex or
- do it yourself (see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins for more details).
Top translations: Trac_Plugin-L10N » etcalendar-locale-messages-pot_0
Preparing the plugin from source requires no additional steps for compiling message catalog files. Only to include translations marked as # fuzzy by the translator, you'll want to do a manual message catalog compilation with the extra -f argument before packaging:
cd wikiticketcalendarmacro/ python ./setup.py compile_catalog -f python ./setup.py bdist_egg
Complaints about missing locale directory are often a side-effect of failure to compile any message catalog for inclusion into Python egg, hence the whole path is missing. Due to a know Trac issue Babel has to be installed prior to Trac, to get it all working as expected.
Again, for more details see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins.

WikiCalendarMacro: Pulling trunk in from WikiTicketCalendarMacro, refs #7564.
After separate development for some years lines of these plugins
are crossing again, as I do aim at bundling both to join the best
from both branches.

WikiTicketCalendarMacro: Improve my quite historical i18n implementation.
An optional i18n implementation with backwards-compatibility to Trac 0.11
could be done, and much more elegant using a dedicated translation method
for Trac plugins from trac.util.dist, correcting  once more.
