Redmine plugin that adds a button to hide the right sidebar

How it works

It stores a session cookie for each controller and action, to memorize the state of the sidebar display


  • The Sidebar display state is not persisted between sessions in a cookie
  • As there is no hook at the beginning of the body layout, we use the following trick : the button is inserted just before the flash messages (even if no message)
  • Fixed an issue with https when ssl managed by a front proxy (request.ssl? does not work)
  • Full tests have been added
  • Compatible with Redmine 1.2.1 -> 4.0.1
  • Compatible with Relative root set with :

Installation notes

  • Standard Redmine Plugin installation
    No plugin migration.
    New hide sidebar icon will automatically be available in any page where the Sidebar is enabled.

As the sidebar_hide plugin seems no more available, this is a small and well working solution! Nice work - Thanks!
