  • TracBrowser

    v1 v1  
     1= The Trac Repository Browser = 
     4The Trac repository browser can be used to browse directories  
     5and specific revisions of files stored in the repository of the configured 
     6version control system. 
     8Directory entries are displayed in a list with sortable columns. The list  
     9entries can be sorted by ''name'', ''size'' or ''age'' by clicking on the column 
     10headers. The sort order can be reversed by clicking on a given column 
     11header again. 
     13The browser can be used to navigate through the directory structure  
     14by clicking on the directory names. Clicking on a file name will show 
     15the contents of the file. Clicking on the revision number of a file or 
     16directory will take you to the TracRevisionLog for that file. 
     17Note that there's also a ''Revision Log'' navigation link that will do 
     18the same for the path currently being examined. 
     20It's also possible to browse directories or files as they were in history, 
     21at any given repository revision. The default behavior is to display the 
     22latest revision but another revision number can easily be selected using 
     23the ''View revision'' input field at the top of the page. 
     25''(since 0.11)'': 
     27The color bar next to the Age column gives a visual indication of the age 
     28of the last change to a file or directory. In the default configuration, 
     29blue is older and red is newer, but this can be [TracIni#browser-section configured]. 
     31At the top of the browser page, there's a drop-down menu which you can use  
     32to select some interesting places in the repository, for example branches or tags.  
     33This is sometimes referred to as the ''browser quickjump'' facility. 
     34The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your backend. 
     35For Subversion, this list contains by default a few branches (`trunk` and any sub-folder of the latest `branches` top-level folder) and a few tags (any sub-folder of the latest `tags` top-level folder). This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured] for more advanced cases. 
     37If you're using a Javascript enabled brower, you'll be able to expand and collapse folders in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a folder. Alternatively, the [trac:TracKeys keyboard] can also be used for this: use 'j' and 'k' to go to the next or previous entry, and 'o' (or 'Enter') to toggle between expanded and collapsed state of the selected folder or for visiting the selected file. 
     39For the Subversion backend, some additional features are available: 
     40 - Support for the `svn:needs-lock` property 
     41 - Support for the `svn:externals` property (which can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured]) 
     42 - The `svn:mime-type` property is used to select the syntax highlighter for rendering the file. For example, setting `svn:mime-type` to `text/html` will ensure the file is highlighted as HTML, regardless of the file extension. It also allows selecting the character encoding used in the file content. For example, if the file content is encoded in UTF-8, set `svn:mime-type` to `text/html;charset=utf-8`. The `charset=` specification overrides the default encoding defined in the `default_charset` option of the `[trac]` section of [TracIni#trac-section trac.ini].
