Trac 1.0dev

The latest revision for the upcoming next stable major release of Trac (1.0) can be checked out with the following command:

svn co http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/trunk trac

(https: also works)

Be sure to read 0.13/TracUpgrade and 0.13/TracInstall for the specific installation instructions for this version.

Trac 0.12-stable

The latest revision for the stable version of Trac 0.12 can be checked out from the 0.12-stable branch with the following command:

svn co http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/branches/0.12-stable 0.12dev

Installation can be performed as usual, using for example the following command:

cd 0.12dev
python setup.py install

Alternatively, you can directly "easy-install" the latest stable version from the repository:

easy_install http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/branches/0.12-stable

easy_install is a script provided by the SetupTools.

Installing versions from checkouts

It's perfectly doable to run Trac directly from a checkout, and that's indeed very useful while developing (see TracDev/DevelopmentEnvironmentSetup).

You can also install a development version, either using the normal installation procedure, or by installing it at a specific location. We recommend that you choose some well visible place (e.g. /opt/trac-0.12dev), and override the PYTHONPATH environment variable (or PythonPath path directive for mod_python) by prepending the /opt/trac-0.12dev/lib/python2.4/site-packages path (replace 2.4 by the Python version that you actually use). That way, you minimize the risk of interferences with the packaged Trac version you probably already have.

cd 0.12-stable
python setup.py install --prefix=/opt/trac-0.12dev


export PYTHONPATH=/opt/trac-0.12dev/lib/python2.4/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

or, in your httpd.conf:

<Location /projects/myproject>
  PythonPath "['/opt/trac-0.12dev/lib/python2.4/site-packages'] + sys.path"
