Colloquy Uses Trac

23 February 2005

James Cox just installed Trac for the Colloquy project, the folks behind my favorite IRC client for Mac OS X.

The cool thing about this particular deployment is that James has gone through the work of customizing the look of the site to some extent. Unfortunately most deployments I've seen don't do that (or don't do it very well).

Anyway… customizability – in terms of the design – is where I see a real strength of Trac. We strive to use very clean markup and provide plenty of hooks for custom styling. Of course, customization is still not trivial, and we have a couple of places to clean-up where the default style sheets are overly specific, and thus hard to override.
