The Trac Timeline
Table of Contents
Trac's timeline feature provides a historic view of the project in a single view.
It lists all Trac events that have occurred in chronological order, a brief description of each event and if applicable, the person responsible for the change.
The timeline lists these kinds of events:
- Wiki page events — Pages created and edited
- Ticket events — Tickets open/closed and updated
- Source code changes — Repository check-ins
- Milestone — Milestone completed
Each event entry provides a hyperlink to the specific event in question, who authored the change as well as a brief excerpt of the actual comment or text, if available.
It is possible to filter the displayed events with the various filters in the option panel:
- View changes from — the date from which to start displaying events (current date if empty). Events that occurred after this date will not be shown, only those that occurred before that date.
- and X days back — how many days backwards in time to get events.
- done by — the author of an event. It accepts a space-separated list of authors for which events should be included. Alternatively, if the author names are prefixed by a "-" character, then the events having those authors will be excluded, and all the others included. Single or double quotes can be used for specifying author names containing space characters.
- Changesets in all repositories — if you have more than one repository connected to your Trac project, then you can filter the output so events from specific repositories are not shown.
- Milestones reached — display or hide milestones reached.
- Opened and closed tickets — display or hide ticket open or close events.
- Wiki changes — display or hide Wiki change events.
