Trac on Windows with Python 2.5
Warning: as of this writing, this page describes an experimental but working setup for Trac
Using 0.10 with Python 2.5 should theoretically work if you manage to build ClearSilver for that version. This shouldn't be a big deal on Unix systems (mh, is that even true?) but it is likely to be problematic on Windows.
The migration has actually already started, and should be usable by adventurous users (and that must be the case if you're using Python 2.5, right?).
If furthermore you don't need to interface with Subversion, then all you need besides Python 2.5 are a few Python packages.
As some packages require the latest development version of the software, you'll nevertheless need a
svn client to checkout the software from their repositories.
Installing Python 2.5 on Windows
Simply download and install the appropriate .msi for your Python platform:
Download the zip package:
Unzip, go in the folder, then run
python setup.py install.
You simply need the latest trunk (0.11dev):
> cd C:\src > svn checkout http://svn.edgewall.com/repos/trac/trunk > cd trunk > python setup.py install
Installing the WebAdmin plugin (optional)
You can also grab it directly from the repository, and install it the same way you did for Trac:
> cd C:\src > svn checkout http://svn.edgewall.com/repos/trac/sandbox/webadmin-genshi webadmin-genshi > cd webadmin-genshi > python setup.py install
Note if you catch an error:"ImportError: No module named setuptools" please download http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py and install the setuptools.
If for some reason the above step fails, either because there's no package for the Windows platform you're using or the setuptools don't manage to read information from your svn working copy (if you used Subversion 1.4 for doing the checkout), you'll probably need to install first a recent
setuptools package, itself available from
http://svn.python.org/projects/sandbox/trunk/setuptools. Version 0.7a1 (r51948) from the repository worked for me.
Of course, this is bleeding edge software, so you'll probably discover a few bugs when using Trac in this configuration. You will be more than welcomed to report those bugs, as we're currently actively developing those Genshi branches which should become the basis for the next Trac development cycle, shortly after the 0.10 release.
The report module is still not converted The group by feature of Custom queries doesn't sort the groups
If you're interested to help out, or if you have your own Clearsilver templates to migrate, you'll probably want to have a look at TracDev/ApiChanges/0.11.
