Rake tasks for Trac?

Before I reinvent too many wheels, has anyone cooked up, or know about,
handy Rake tasks for interacting with Trac?

Thanks!

(BTW, I did a Google of “Ruby Rake task cookbook”, and was surprised not
to find a Rake task cookbook site anyplace. )

I haven’t but I’m curious?

Which Trac tasks would you want to use through rake?

This is an excellent idea … I’ve started a page here:

Cool.

I’ve a hacky task that adds a new ticket via HTTP post. I want to poke
it a bit more, shake out the critters with more real-world usage, and
then I’ll add it.

Thanks for Rake.

Adding tickets, for one thing.

I want to (and, as of 1 hour ago, I can) run

rake trac:post_task

and answer a few prompts (summary, description, ticket type [defaults
to task] )

and have a new ticket created in Trac.

Or run

rake trac:tickets_for james

and get back a plain-text list of open tickets assigned to me.

The first I can now do. The second is not a big need (I just made it
up, actually), but reasonably useful, and easy enough to code (pulling
stuff from Trac is easier than pushing).

It would be more interesting if I could query for tickets that way, see
if there are any tickets related to something or other (tag/keyword
search), and then add a ticket if I need to.

These are the sorts of little things that I’d like to do from the
command line while working, to avoid the psychic disruption of clicking
around a Web page.

I’ve worked with tying a Rails app to Trac in a number of ways,
mostly to get user comments and errors sent straight to Trac instead
of my inbox or a logfile I forget to check.

It’s pretty easy with the XML-RPC plugin. (http://www.trac-hacks.org/
wiki/XmlRpcPlugin). Two caveats though:

  1. you need to get a new version of Trac from their SVN, it’s not
    compatible with the 0.9 series.
  2. you need to hack the library slightly. it does content auto-
    detection to on the URL in Trac and routes you to the XML-RPC
    machinery if you’re posting XML otherwise it gives you a very nice
    HTML page detailing the API. (http://www.trac-hacks.org/ticket/411)

Let me know if you have any questions about how I set it up.

I looked at the Trac XML-RPC a bit, and decided against trying to
upgrade my Trac installation. It might make certain things simpler, but
POSTing content with authenticated HTTP requests works fine right now.

(I now have useful code for posting new tickets and fetching a list of
open tickets.)
