     1= reStructuredText Support in Trac
     2
     3== Introduction
     4
     5
     6Trac supports [http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docs/ref/rst/restructuredtext.html reStructuredText (RST)] as an alternative to wiki markup where WikiFormatting is used.
     7
     8From the reStucturedText webpage:
     9 "reStructuredText is an easy-to-read, what-you-see-is-what-you-get plaintext markup syntax and parser system. It is useful for in-line program documentation (such as Python docstrings), for quickly creating simple web pages, and for standalone documents. reStructuredText is designed for extensibility for specific application domains."
     10
     11If you want a file from your Subversion repository to be displayed as reStructuredText in the Trac source browser, set `text/x-rst` as the value for the Subversion property `svn:mime-type`. See [trac:source:/trunk/INSTALL this example].
     12
     13=== Requirements
     14
     15To activate RST support in Trac, install the python docutils package: `easy_install docutils`. If not already available on your operating system, you can download it at the [http://docutils.sourceforge.net/rst.html RST Website].
     16
     17Do not use the package manager of your OS, eg `apt-get install python-docutils`, because Trac will not find docutils then.
     18
     19=== More information on RST
     20
     21 * reStructuredText Website -- http://docutils.sourceforge.net/rst.html
     22 * RST Quick Reference -- http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docs/rst/quickref.html
     23
     24== Using RST in Trac
     25
     26To specify that a block of text should be parsed using RST, use the ''rst'' processor.
     27
     28=== TracLinks in reStructuredText
     29
     30 * Trac provides a custom RST directive `trac::` to allow TracLinks from within RST text.

     50
     51 * Trac allows an even easier way of creating TracLinks in RST, using the custom `:trac:` role.

     72 For a complete example of all uses of the `:trac:` role, please see WikiRestructuredTextLinks.
     73
     74=== Syntax highlighting in reStructuredText
     75
     76There is a directive for doing TracSyntaxColoring in RST as well. The directive is called code-block:
     77
     78||= Wiki Markup ||= Display ||
     79{{{#!td
     80  {{{
     81  {{{
     82  #!rst
     83
     84  .. code-block:: python
     85
     86     class Test:
     87
     88         def TestFunction(self):
     89             pass
     90 
     91  }}}
     92  }}}
     93}}}
     94{{{#!td
     95  {{{
     96  #!rst
     97
     98  .. code-block:: python
     99
     100     class Test:
     101
     102         def TestFunction(self):
     103             pass
     104
     105  }}}
     106}}}
     107Note the need to indent the code at least one character after the `.. code-block` directive.
     108
     109=== Wiki Macros in reStructuredText
     110
     111To enable [WikiMacros Wiki Macros] in RST, you use the same directive as for syntax highlighting, ie code-block:
     112
     113||= Wiki Markup ||= Display ||
     114{{{#!td
     115  {{{
     116  {{{
     117  #!rst
     118
     119  .. code-block:: RecentChanges
     120
     121     Trac,3
     122
     123  }}}
     124  }}}
     125}}}
     126{{{#!td
     127  {{{
     128  #!rst
     129
     130  .. code-block:: RecentChanges
     131
     132     Trac,3
     133
     134  }}}
     135}}}
     136
     137Or a more concise Wiki Macro-like syntax is also available, using the `:code-block:` role:
     138
     139||= Wiki Markup ||= Display ||
     140{{{#!td
     141  {{{
     142  {{{
     143  #!rst
     144
     145  :code-block:`RecentChanges:Trac,3`
     146  }}}
     147  }}}
     148}}}
     149{{{#!td
     150  {{{
     151  #!rst
     152
     153  :code-block:`RecentChanges:Trac,3`
     154  }}}
     155}}}
     156
