MyPagePlugin for Trac


Simple plugin designed to help you maintain a "journal" of your daily activities with wiki pages. The main idea is to have a main navigation link named MyPage which takes you to your "page of the day", in edit mode.

If that page doesn't exist already, it will be filled with the content of a PageTemplates, but with a twist: some tokens will be automatically replaced, in particular for giving you the possibility to include or refer to the previous page of the day...

The intended use is to have a quick but effective way to track the ongoing activities of the day in the form of free wiki markup, and to easily keep a continuity with the activity that occurred the days before.

Works best with the WikiExtrasPlugin and its WikiPhrases...

Detailed mode of operation

When clicking on a MyPage top-level navigation link, one will return to the edit preview mode of the "page of the day", which is a normal wiki page of the form /wiki/<userid>/<iso8601-date>. If that page doesn't yet exist, it will be created, eventually using an appropriate page template (PageTemplates/MyPage/<userid> or PageTemplates/MyPage - see PageTemplates).

(Technically, this is achieved by redirecting the /mypage URL to the actual page of the day with ?action=edit)

Moreover those templates can contain some special markup which will get replaced by dynamic content when inserted as the initial content of the page of the day. The macro [[MyPageHelp]] lists the available tokens:

    • The author's full name
    • The date of the day, formatted according to the user preferences
    • The date of the day, formatted according ISO-8601 (i.e. YYYY-MM-DD)
    • Link to most recent MyPage page
    • Name of the most recent MyPage page
    • Wiki-quoted text of the most recent MyPage page
    • Wiki text of the most recent MyPage page
    • The author's user id

This replacement will only happen when creating the page of the day. If one wants to create such pages as normal wiki pages, retro- or pro-actively, the page will start empty or using the normal PageTemplates filling mechanism, i.e. no expansion of these tokens will take place.
