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.

This is great. You are granting yourself to use the screen at maximum size. You dont need to go to the bottom to see some data on the table slide the screen continuously. :)

To show icon on 3.4, I fix smile_helpers_ap
plication.rb L150.

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