Trac Plugin to allow email notification of changes on wiki pages
Trac WikiNotification is a plugin that allows users(even anonymous, as long as email is set) to select the wiki pages that they wish to be notified(by email) when a change occurs on it.
Note: The user updating the wiki page won’t be notified about his own changes.
Enabling the Plugin
It’s as simple as:
[components] wikinotification.* = enabled
smtp_enabled has to be enabled in notification configuration section.
Available Configuration Options
These are the options available to include on your trac.ini under wiki-notification. You can configure them through the web admin interface, too.
|Config Setting||Default Value||Explanation|
|redirect_time||5 (in seconds)||The default seconds a redirect should take when watching/un-watching a wiki page. This value is also definable per user, ie, user is able to configure this, of course for himself.|
|smtp_always_bcc||empty||Comma separated list of email address(es) to always send notifications to, addresses do not appear publicly (Bcc:).|
|smtp_always_cc||empty||Comma separated list of email address(es) to always send notifications to, addresses can be seen by all recipients (Cc:).|
|from_email||trac.wiki@localhost||Sender address to use in notification emails.|
|from_name||None||Sender name to use in notification emails. Defaults to project name.|
|use_public_cc||False||Recipients can see email addresses of other CC’ed recipients. If this option is disabled(the default), recipients are put on BCC.|
|attach_diff||False||Send changes diff as an attachment instead of on the email text body.|
|subject_template||$prefix $pagename $action||A Genshi text template snippet used to get the notification subject.|
|banned_addresses||empty||Comma separated list of email addresses to never send notifications to.|
If you want to override these settings then you can include it like the following example:
[wiki-notification] redirect_time = 5 smtp_always_bcc = someone@somedomain, another.one@somedomain smtp_always_cc = someone.else@somedomain from_email = trac.wiki@localhost from_name = Custom Name use_public_cc = false attach_diff = true subject_template = Foo $prefix $pagename $action banned_addresses = banned.user1@somedomain, banned.user2@somedomain
Download and Installation
Run the following to install this plugin:
> sudo pip install TracWikiNotification
Aditional Notes(from user input)
pip is run from the command line (on Linux) not from within Python.
After installing any plugin for Trac you’ll need to restart Apache to see it (not all changes to trac.ini require a restart but adding a plugin does).
Make sure to add the new plugin to trac.ini :
[components] wikinotification.* = enabled
Also should be noted that the trac.ini configuration for the wiki notification should look something like:
[wiki-notification] smtp_always_cc = someone@somedomain from_email = trac.wiki@localhost
Another note: a user will never get a notice of his/her own wiki modification (which is a little tricky when testing the plugin :))
Please note that older versions of the plugin may set a subject_template config value, similar to subject_template = $prefix $page.name $action. This will result in ‘UndefinedError: “page” not defined’. Use $pagename instead of $page.name.
Tweaking/Customizing The Notification Email Template
You can, if you wish, tweak the notification email template sent to your users.
Copy the wiki_notification_email_template.txt file to your trac environment templates/ sub-directory and tweak it to your needs.
Make sure you read the Genshi Text Templates documentation to see if you don’t break any of the logic in that template.
