Fixed typo.

Editing Trac Pages in Emacs

The trac-wiki.el package allows one to view and edit wiki pages in Trac directly from Emacs. I've gotten it working with GNU Emacs 23.1.1, but I had to patch it first. Here's what I did:

  1. I installed xml-rpc.el version 1.6.8.
  1. I downloaded trac-wiki.el 1.7.
  1. I made some changes to trac-wiki.el to make it compatibile with this version of xml-rpc.el: TracWikiElPatch. The resulting file, which you can install directly, is TracWikiElWithPatch.

Once you've installed xml-rpc.el and the patched trac-wiki.el in your load-path, you are ready. To use trac-wiki.el, load it, then do:

  M-x trac-wiki RET
  RET
  http://trac.sacrideo.us/wg RET
  y
  <username> RET
  <password> RET
  WikiStart RET

This will take you to the Trac wiki's home page. Use C-h m for details about more commands you can use to get info about pages, including diffs, and to edit them directly in Emacs.

I'm using Emacs 23.2 on OS X. I haven't tested this with other versions of Emacs.
