Is it possible to reference an image in source control (FishEye/Crucible) from a Confluence Page?

I would like to be able to display an image that is contained in source control (for example an SVG image) within a Confluence page in the same fashion as a trac image link using the [[Image(source:/repo/path/image.svg]] syntax (see http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/WikiFormatting#Images).

This would allow us to maintain images in our current source control and always refer to the current version in our documentation, rather than having to update attached images as a separate process.

Is this functtionality provided, or what alternatives are there that would provide similar capabilities?

Many Thanks

I like to see the same functionality using a github repository.

Hi Tim,

If there is a web front end to your repo the following should work:

!<path to remote image>!

e.g.

!http://static.bbc.co.uk/frameworks/barlesque/1.40.0/desktop/3.5/img/blq-blocks_grey_alpha.png!

You should be able to use images of any format, but whether they display or not will depend on your browser.

Does that help?

Andrew.
