     1= Support for InterWiki links
     3== Definition
     5An InterWiki link can be used for referring to a Wiki page located in another Wiki system, and by extension, to any object located in any other Web application, provided a simple URL mapping can be done.
     7At the extreme, InterWiki prefixes can even be used to simply introduce links to new protocols, such as `tsvn:` used by [trac:TortoiseSvn TortoiseSvn].
     9== Link Syntax
     15The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name, followed by a colon, eg `MeatBall:`, followed by a page specification in the target.
     16Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, '''InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive'''.
     18The target Wiki URL is looked up in the `[interwiki]` section of TracIni or in the InterMapTxt wiki page, modeled after MeatBall:InterMapTxt. If a prefix is defined in both the `[interwiki]` section and InterMapTxt, the `[interwiki]` section takes precedence.
     20In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target is simply ''appended'' to the URL, Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs:
     21identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
     22The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier using the ":" separator.
     24=== [interwiki]
     26Every option in the `[interwiki]` section in TracIni defines one InterWiki prefix. The option name defines the prefix. The option value defines the URL, optionally followed by a description separated from the URL by whitespace. Parametric URLs are supported as well.

     44Currently active prefixes: [[InterWiki]]
     46This page is modelled after the MeatBall:InterMapTxt page.
     47In addition, an optional comment is allowed after the mapping.

     64 * `MoinMoin:InterWikiMap` should be rendered as MoinMoin:InterWikiMap and the ''title'' for that link would be "!InterWikiMap in !MoinMoin"
     65 * `Trac-ML:4346` should be rendered as Trac-ML:4346 and the ''title'' for that link would be "Message 4346 in Trac Mailing List"
