    1 = The Trac Browser = 
     1= The Trac Repository Browser = 
    22[[TracGuideToc]] 
    33 
    4 The Trac browser can be used to browse directories, change logs  
    5 and specific revisions of files stored in a subversion repository. 
     4The Trac repository browser can be used to browse specific revisions of directories  
     5and files stored in the repository of the configured version control system. 
    66 
    77Directory entries are displayed in a list with sortable columns. The list  
     
    1313by clicking on the directory names. Clicking on a file name will show 
    1414the contents of the file. Clicking on the revision number of a file or 
    15 directory will take you to the revision history for that file. 
     15directory will take you to the TracRevisionLog for that file. 
     16Note that there's also a ''Revision Log'' navigation link that will do 
     17the same for the path currently being examined. 
    1618 
    1719It's also possible to browse directories or files as they were in history, 
     
    2022the ''View revision'' input field at the top of the page. 
    2123 
    22 == RSS Support == 
     24''(since 0.11)'': 
    2325 
    24 The browser module provided RSS feeds to monitor changes to a file or 
    25 directory. To subscribe to an RSS feed for a file or directory, open its 
    26 revision log in the browser and click the orange 'XML' icon at the bottom 
    27 of the page. For more information on RSS support in Trac, see TracRss. 
     26The color bar next to the Age column gives a visual indication of the age 
     27of the last change to a file or directory. In the default configuration, 
     28blue is older and red is newer, but this can be [TracIni#browser-section configured]. 
     29 
     30At the top of the browser page, there's a drop-down menu which you can use  
     31to select some interesting places in the repository, for example branches or tags.  
     32This is sometimes referred to as the ''browser quickjump'' facility. 
     33The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your backend. 
     34For Subversion, this list contains by default the top-level trunk directory and sub-directories of the top-level branches and tags directories (`/trunk`, `/branches/*`, and `/tags/*`).  This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured] for more advanced cases. 
     35 
     36If you're using a Javascript enabled browser, you'll be able to expand and collapse folders in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a folder. Alternatively, the [trac:TracKeys keyboard] can also be used for this: use 'j' and 'k' to go to the next or previous entry, and 'o' (or 'Enter') to toggle between expanded and collapsed state of the selected folder or for visiting the selected file. 
     37 
     38For the Subversion backend, some additional features are available: 
     39 - Displays the `svn:needs-lock` property 
     40 - Support for the `svn:externals` property (which can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured]) 
     41 - The `svn:mime-type` property is used to select the syntax highlighter for rendering the file. For example, setting `svn:mime-type` to `text/html` will ensure the file is highlighted as HTML, regardless of the file extension. It also allows selecting the character encoding used in the file content. For example, if the file content is encoded in UTF-8, set `svn:mime-type` to `text/html;charset=utf-8`. The `charset=` specification overrides the default encoding defined in the `default_charset` option of the `[trac]` section of [TracIni#trac-section trac.ini].
