This Trac plugin allows you to synchronize wiki pages between to separate Trac installations.

A common use case is to install a local Trac project on your workstation and synchronize the wiki pages with your remote Trac server. This allows you to bring the wiki content offline, or edit the content locally before batch updating to the remote server (useful when working over slow Internet/VPN connections).


  • Supports various type of synchronization states:

    • MODIFED: Local page has been modified and will be updated to the remote server

    • NEW: Local page is new and will be updated to the remote server

    • OUTDATED: Remote page has been modified and will be copied from the remote server

    • MISSING: Remote page exists and will be copied from the remote server

    • CONFLICT: Both local and remote pages have been modified, you can choose to either update to or copy from the remote server

    • SYNCED: Both local and remote pages are identitical

    • IGNORED: Skip these pages during synchronization

  • Uses standard GET and POST methods for synchronization, no other Trac plugins required

  • Supports BASIC/DIGEST authentication

  • Supports batch synchronization


  • Implement attachment synchronization
