Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-90) Make discovering WikiMacros easier
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2013 22:41:49 GMT


Gary Martin commented on COMDEV-90:

Hi Nithish,

In order to discuss this with the Bloodhound developer community you should subscribe to the
bloodhound dev mailing list by sending a blank email to
so that you can email to discuss your interest in any Bloodhound
related project.

You should consider asking some more specific questions rather than just asking for more details
as we will find it difficult to know what it is that you wish to be told. As you have also
shown an interest in COMDEV-92 you will may also want to ask about that.

> Apache Bloodhound is a software development collaboration tool, including issue tracking,
wiki and repository browsing (see: Bloodhound extends Trac
( with multiple product support, advanced search functionality,
ticket relations, a simpler installer and sleeker user interface. Apache Bloodhound recently
graduated from the Apache Incubator as a stand-alone Apache project. 
> Problem: 
> Currently users can only discover WikiMacros by browsing to a help page (
), and likely have to go back and forth frequently between the place they would like to insert
the Macro and the help page.
> Proposed solution: 
> Making it easier for users to discover WikiMacros as they edit pages. We're looking for
views on how to best do this as well as the implementation. One suggestion would be a visual
browser of the Macros with some sample data, another to use a code hinting approach as users
edit Wiki pages.
> Skills needed: 
> Bloodhound and Trac are written in Python, so a moderate dose of Python programing skills
are required.
