Disk Usage TWiki Plugin

Show the disk usage for the current web

Syntax Rules





%DISKUSAGE{web="Sandbox"}% %DISKUSAGE{web="Sandbox"}%

DiskUsagePlugin Global Settings

  • One line description, shown in the Text Formatting Rules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Show the disk usage for the current web
  • Whether you want debug output
    • Set DEBUG = 0

Plugin Installation Instructions

Note: You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this plugin. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the plugin on the server where TWiki is running.

  • Download the ZIP file from twiki.org (see below)
  • Unzip DiskUsagePlugin.zip in your twiki installation directory. Content:
    File: Description:
    data/TWiki/DiskUsagePlugin.txt Plugin topic
    lib/TWiki/Plugins/DiskUsagePlugin.pm Plugin Perl module
  • Visit configure in your TWiki installation, and enable the plugin in the {Plugins} section.
  • Test if the plugin is correctly installed:
  • see whether the %DISKUSAGE% directive is expanded above

Future development possibilities

It could be improved on considerably. e.g.

  • One possibility is to install it in the TWiki web and use an include like WebChanges does
  • This could be called WebDiskUsage or used on a page called WebStatus
  • It should allow specification of topic and web. Currently it works only for the current web
