Not a bug so much as a question:

  • How do you rename and remove variables set with SetGetPlugin?

The only documented commands are to SET and GET a variable and its value, and to DUMP a list of all set variables in the TWiki. As a workaround, I can set their value to a space (" "), but that still leaves the variable cluttering the SETGETDUMP list (which doesn't have any options for filtering the output).

Consider this an enhancement request. Persistent variables cannot be renamed/removed at this time.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2012-06-15

Thanks Peter. Is there a way to filter what the SETGETDUMP command outputs; for example, to remove entries with empty values? Nothing I've tried seems to work; such as using conditionals or CALC things in the format options.

-- TWiki:Main.JonHertzig - 2012-06-15

I don't think that is currently possible.

TWiki is open source software. I invite you to get involved, fix/enhance part of TWiki, and contribute it back to the community. For TWiki extensions see TWiki:Plugins.ReadmeFirst. If inclined, hire a TWiki consultant to enhance TWiki for you.
