    11= Tracd = 
    22 
    3 Tracd is a lightweight stand-alone Trac server. In most cases it's easier to setup and runs faster than trac.cgi.

    5 '''Note: tracd is still experimental.''' 
     3Tracd is a lightweight standalone Trac web server. In most cases it's easier to setup and runs faster than the [wiki:TracCgi CGI script]. 
    64 
    75== Pros == 
    86 
    97 * Fewer dependencies: You don't need to install apache or any other web-server. 
    10  * Fast: Should be as fast as the ModPython version (much faster than the cgi). 
     8 * Fast: Should be as fast as the [wiki:TracModPython mod_python] version (and much faster than the [wiki:TracCgi CGI]). 
    119 
    1210== Cons == 
    1311 
    14  * Less features: Tracd implements a very simple web-server and is not as configurable as apache. 
    15  * Only htdigest authentication: Tracd can currently only authenticate users against apache-htdigest files. 
    16  * No native https support: [http://www.rickk.com/sslwrap/ sslwrap] can be used instead. 
     12 * Less features: Tracd implements a very simple web-server and is not as configurable as Apache HTTPD. 
     13 * No native HTTPS support: [http://www.rickk.com/sslwrap/ sslwrap] can be used instead, 
     14   or [http://lists.edgewall.com/archive/trac/2005-August/004381.html STUNNEL]. 
    1715 
    1816== Usage examples == 
     
    2624 $ tracd -p 8080 /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2 
    2725}}} 
    28 With htdigest authentication. The file /tmp/users.htdigest contain user accounts for project1 with the realm "mycompany.com". 
     26 
     27You can't have the last portion of the path identical between the projects since that's how trac keeps the URLs of the 
     28different projects unique. So if you use /project1/path/to and /project2/path/to, you will only see the second project. 
     29 
     30== Using Authentication == 
     31 
     32Tracd provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. The default is to use Digest; to use Basic authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` in the examples below, and omit the realm. 
     33 
     34If the file `/path/to/users.htdigest` contain user accounts for project1 with the realm "mycompany.com", you'd use the following command-line to start tracd: 
    2935{{{ 
    30  $ tracd -p 8080 --auth project1,/tmp/users.htdigest,mycompany.com /path/to/project1 
     36 $ tracd -p 8080 --auth project1,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com /path/to/project1 
     37}}} 
     38''Note that the project “name” passed to the `--auth` option is actually the base name of the project environment directory."" 
     39 
     40Of course, the digest file can be be shared so that it is used for more than one project: 
     41{{{ 
     42 $ tracd -p 8080 \ 
     43   --auth project1,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \ 
     44   --auth project2,/path/to/users.htdigest,mycompany.com \ 
     45   /path/to/project1 /path/to/project2 
    3146}}} 
    3247 
     48== Generating Passwords Without Apache == 
     49 
     50If you don't have Apache available, you can use this simple Python script to generate your passwords: 
     51 
     52{{{ 
     53from optparse import OptionParser 
     54import md5 
     55 
     56# build the options 
     57usage = "usage: %prog [options]" 
     58parser = OptionParser(usage=usage) 
     59parser.add_option("-u", "--username",action="store", dest="username", type = "string", 
     60                  help="the username for whom to generate a password") 
     61parser.add_option("-p", "--password",action="store", dest="password", type = "string", 
     62                  help="the password to use") 
     63(options, args) = parser.parse_args() 
     64 
     65# check options 
     66if (options.username is None) or (options.password is None): 
     67   parser.error("You must supply both the username and password") 
     68    
     69# Generate the string to enter into the htdigest file 
     70realm = 'trac' 
     71kd = lambda x: md5.md5(':'.join(x)).hexdigest() 
     72print ':'.join((options.username, realm, kd([options.username, realm, options.password]))) 
     73}}}
