Latest Development Source Code
We use Subversion for source revision control and code sharing.
The Subversion repository URL for the Trac project is at:
For further instructions on how to use Subversion, see The Subversion Book.
svn co http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/trunk trac
(https: also works)
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 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
or, in your httpd.conf:
<Location /projects/myproject> ... PythonPath "['/opt/trac-0.12dev/lib/python2.4/site-packages'] + sys.path" ... </Location>
