Repository Readme File Rendering


This plugin will render any file in listing starting with 'readme(*)' in some form, when browsing directories using the 'Browse Source' menu item (repository browser).

It uses the default Trac Mimeview rendering, and will render text (and source files) as usual (less line numbers). However, any supported output format can be used to provide HTML, like:

  • .rst files (restructured text)
  • wiki markup by setting file mime-type to text/x-trac-wiki (or making for instance .wiki file extension default by trac.ini setting [mimeviewer] mime_map = ...., text/x-trac-wiki:wiki)

Plugin supports any Trac > 0.11 (including 0.12 and 0.13dev, and including multi-repository).

ReposReadMePlugin: Added filename as heading and wrapped content into a box for nicer visual effects. Also made filename into an anchor to allow directly linking to each individual readme file.

Closes #7795.
