About the prerequisites for Trac 1.2.x

  • Python 2.6 or 2.7 (+setuptools)
  • Genshi: 0.7 (or 0.6.1) (win32 installer available)
  • Babel: 1.3 (or 0.9.6, win32 installer available) needed for localizing Trac, otherwise optional. Note that it needs to be installed before Trac when installing the latter from source (.gz or .zip).

For Windows x64, there are no installers for Genshi and Babel so install them by using easy_install.

Latest Stable Release for the 0.12.x line - Trac 0.12.7

Latest Development Releases for the 1.3.x line (unstable)

The really latest and greatest version of Trac. However this is a development release, so a few caveats are in order:

  • don't expect the level of API or feature stability you'll get from either 1.0.x or 1.2.x
  • don't use in production unless you're at ease with backup, upgrade and manual downgrade procedures
  • don't ship this one in your favorite distribution if you're a Trac package maintainer
  • this version of Trac now uses Jinja2 as it's main template engine - however plugins relying on the Genshi template engine are still supported for now

Latest Development Source Code

We use Subversion for source revision control and code sharing, but we also have Git and Mercurial mirrors.

The Subversion repository URL for the Trac project is at:

https://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/

Refer to the TracRepositories page for full details about how to get access to the source.

Trac 1.3dev

The latest revision for the upcoming next development release of Trac (next-dev-1.3.x) can be checked out with the following command:

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

(https: also works)

Be sure to read 1.3/TracUpgrade and 1.3/TracInstall for the specific installation instructions for this version.

Trac 1.2-stable

The latest revision for the upcoming next maintenance release of Trac (next-stable-1.2.x) can be checked out with the following command:

svn co https://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/branches/1.2-stable trac

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

Trac 1.0-stable

The latest revision for the stable version of Trac 1.0 can be checked out from the 1.0-stable branch with the following command:

svn co https://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/branches/1.0-stable 1.0dev

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

cd 1.0dev
python setup.py install

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

easy_install https://svn.edgewall.org/repos/trac/branches/1.0-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-1.2dev), and override the PYTHONPATH environment variable (or PythonPath path directive for mod_python) by prepending the /opt/trac-1.2dev/lib/python2.7/site-packages path (replace 2.7 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 1.2-stable
python setup.py install --prefix=/opt/trac-1.2dev

then:

export PYTHONPATH=/opt/trac-1.2dev/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

or, in your httpd.conf:

<Location /projects/myproject>
  ...
  PythonPath "['/opt/trac-1.2dev/lib/python2.7/site-packages'] + sys.path"
  ...
</Location>
