Genshi processor for wiki pages


The GenshiMacro allows you to write and render Genshi templates directly in wiki pages with a new Genshi processor.

Your templates will have access to the request as req, which can be useful for tasks like URL generation, rendering form tokens for POST requests, and checking for a logged-in user.

'''Note: no security considerations whatsoever went into the making of this plugin. It might be a terrible idea. If you happen to know that it is, please let me know.'''

Configuration and Usage

To use the plugin, install it in your Trac environment and enable its components in trac.ini:

genshimacro.* = enabled

You can then write Genshi templates directly in wiki pages like so:

<div xmlns:py="">
  <py:when test="req.session.authenticated">
   <form method="POST" action="${req.href.newticket()}">
    <input type="text" name="field_summary" placeholder="My new ticket"
           id="field-summary" />
    <input type="hidden" name="__FORM_TOKEN" value="${req.form_token}" />
    <input type="submit" />
   <b>To file a new ticket, you'll need to
      <a href="${req.href.login()}">log in</a> or
      <a href="${req.href.register()}">create an account</a>
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
