cartman is an overweight, immature, spoiled, outspoken, lazy, foul-mouthed, mean-spirited, racist, sexist, anti-semitic, xenophobic, sociopathic, narcissistic, and ill-tempered elementary school student living with his mother. Wait... wrong cartman.
Create a new ticket, that will open your $EDITOR:
$ cm new
View the content of a ticket:
$ cm view 1514
At a minimum you need to create a ~/.cartman/config file with the following:
[trac] base_url = http://your.trac.install/ username = tamentis password = sitnemat
The auth_type will force cartman to use the give authtication type. Currently supported auth values are: basic, digest. If not specified defaults to basic (which is the most unsafe option).
The verify_ssl_cert will force cartman to access an SSL site with a self-signed or invalid SSL certificate. Use this with care.
The editor will override the editor defined in $EDITOR.
Dump a list of tickets on screen, without details:
$ cm report 1 #142. fix world hunger (bjanin@) #159. ignore unpaid rent (bjanin@)
Another way to find ticket is using the search command:
$ cm search dead mouse #154. mickey
Show all the properties of a ticket:
$ cm view 1
Get a list of all the available reports with:
$ cm reports
This will dump on screen all the Milestones, Components, Versions:
$ cm properties
Creating a ticket will work similarly to writing a new email in mutt, it loads your current $EDITOR and lets you edit the details of the ticket. Assuming all the parameters are correct, it will create the ticket as soon as you save and exit and return the ticket number. If your ticket does not appear valid (missing required field, inexistent Milestone, etc.) cartman will stop and lists each error and let you return to your editor:
$ cm new -- opens your editor -- Found the following errors: - Invalid 'Subject': cannot be blank - Invalid 'Milestone': expected: Bug Bucket, Release 2, Release 3 -- Hit Enter to return to editor, ^C to abort --
The first parameter to cm is the owner of the ticket, it populates the To field by default:
$ cm new jcarmack
If your Trac has custom fields, you can use their identifier in the headers, e.g.:
story_id: 5123 iteration: 15
If you specify a template with -t, cartman will look for a matching file in the ~/.cartman/templates folder and will use it as a base for your ticket:
$ cm new -t sysadmin
You can define a default template in this same directory in order to set the template used by default (without -t).
Just like creating a ticket, adding a comment is just like mutt, your current $EDITOR will be loaded on a blank file for you to edit. Upon save and exit, cartman will commit this new comment and return silently, unless an error occurs:
$ cm comment 1
If the comment is short enough to fit on the command line, you may use the -m flag as such:
$ cm comment 1 -m "you forgot to call twiddle()"
View the current status of a ticket, and the available statuses:
$ cm status 1
Set a ticket as accepted:
$ cm status 1 accept
If you need to add a comment with this status change, you can use the -c flag, it will open your default editor:
$ cm status 1 reopen -c
You may also use the -m flag to define the comment in-line, without the use of an editor:
$ cm status 1 reopen -m "does not work with x = y"
If you are using vim as your default editor, you also might want to add email-like syntax highlighting to match the .cm.ticket extension:
autocmd BufNewFile *.cm.ticket setf mail
If you use multiple Trac sites, you can have multiple configurations in the same file using the section to separate the sites, here is an example:
[other] base_url = http://other.trac.site/ username = tamentis password = sitnemat verify_ssl_cert = False
You would pass the -s parameter to cm to define which site to access:
cm -s other report 1
You may define all common configuration settings in the [DEFAULT] section.
Quick and dirty if you are not familiar with Python packaging:
sudo python setup.py install
- Python 2.7+, 3.3+ (not 3.2, not 2.6)
- python-requests 1.2 and above
- Tested on Trac 0.12.5 and 1.0.1
- Probably still works on 0.11, but untested.
Create a temp Trac for testing purpose (in virtualenv):$ pip install trac $ trac-admin testtrac initenv $ trac-admin testtrac permission add testuser TRAC_ADMIN $ htpasswd -b -c -m htpasswd testuser testpass $ tracd testtrac -p 8080 --basic-auth=testtrac,htpasswd,testrealm
Follow PEP-8, existing style then the following notes.
For dictionaries, lists: keep commas after each items, closing bracket should close on the same column as the first letter of the statement with the opening bracket.
Use double-quotes for strings unless it makes it easier on certain strings (avoids escaped double-quotes).
If an error is exceptional, let the exception rise.
