Ht Group Editor Plugin

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This a simple editor with drop down lists to edit the ht groups file for a project. It uses the Genshi templating engine, and is a replacement for HtgroupsPlugin. It was offered as a contribution to the author, but there was no response.

It is a companion plugin to the FineGrainedPageAuthzEditorPlugin.

Fork: I have made a small fork on Bitbucket with some improvements/fixes. Feel free to suggest new.


File Locations

The plugin tries to find the names of the files it has to work with from the config object that reads them in from the normal config file for a Trac project. They maybe specifed in a project specific file or an inherited one.

The list of users are obtained from the account_manager object, that will read them from one of its password stores. See AccountManagerPlugin documentation for the appropriate configuration options.

For the group file it is looked for under the account-manager section and the name group_file. If this fails it then looks under the htgroups section.


group_file = /some/project/directory/groups



group_file = /some/project/directory/groups


It uses the following additional modules which may require installation
