## HgTimeline plugin

This plugin was designed for those Trac instances that need to interface with multiple Mercurial repositories, so that TracMercurial is not a good fit. This plugin integrates the changelog from a set of specified repositories into the Trac timeline and allows for linking to specific revisions at an external Mercurial web UI using a simple wiki syntax. The eccentricities of using the Trac source browser for Mercurial repositories or using it to browse several repositories which stem from the same project are thus avoided.

## Deprecated

Most of this plugin is considered deprecated by its author; the newer multiple-repository support in Trac combined with TracMercurial works fine. However, a small plugin is still provided to handle repo:<rev-identifier> links (which are not natively supported by TracMercurial). This plugin can be found in hgtl/wikirepo.py.

## How to install

Use

$python setup.py install to install the plugin globally or$ python setup.py develop

if you want to be able to change the source code.

Then, edit your project's trac.ini. In the components section, add this line:

hgtl.* = enabled

Finally, add a [hg-timeline] section like this:

[hg-timeline] web.href = http://hg.example.com/ proj1 = /home/joe/src/proj1 proj2 = /home/bob/src/proj2

The web.href option should point to an instance of hgwebdir (provided with Mercurial). Which has all the projects under it using the same identifier that is used in the [hg-timeline] section (so the web interface for the repository designated as proj1 should be at http://hg.example.com/proj1/).

Thanks go to Christian Boos, who developed the more comprehensive TracMercurial plugin (see http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracMercurial), Noah Kantrowitz, who helped me out in IRC with some problems I had, and all the Trac developers who've worked at making it such a great piece of software.
