Re: [mylyn-dev] WikiText remote editing


I think this is a fantastic use case for the WikiText tools, especially if the tools supported remote publishing as well as local capture, providing a full round-trip with possibility for version control, etc.. That sounds like it should be easy, but its really not as you can't just FTP the WikiText to the remote. The lack of a round-trip is a real barrier to having a really good workflow for crowd sourced documentation.

 (David, I think this might have also come up between us a long-time back on one of your blog posts or something..)

Steffen,

After reading the thread it looks like connecting to wikis could be in scope for Mylyn.  You point about strong community support still holds true, since we have no plans to tackle such a feature in the short or long term.

Davide, if you'd like to discuss further this is something that we could take up in the weekly Mylyn call.  Let me know if you're interested.

Davide,

Remote wiki editing is beyond the scope of Mylyn WikiText - in other words, not on the roadmap.  This is something that has come up before, though I'm having troubles tracking down the conversation.

David,

thank you for your indications, I'm going to look a those.
Regarding the possibility of a remote editing of wiki pages
directly from Mylyn (Eclipse IDE), is it on the road-map?
not yet considered, or already discarded?

cheers,
Davide

Davide,

The editing features of Mylyn WikiText are designed for editing local files, however Mylyn WikiText provides API to make it easy to embed a wiki markup source editor in other applications.   It would be relatively easy to create an application that uses a wiki's remote API to edit pages using Mylyn WikiText.  A good place to start is the WikiText Developer Guideorg.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.ui.editor.MarkupSourceViewer and org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.ui.editor.WikiTextSourceEditor.

Hello Mylyn community,

I'm using Mylyn (task/context/vcs) for some time and in the context of a EU
research project I'm studying the possibility to use the WikiText component.
As first check I would like to use it for updating MediaWiki pages.

Is it possible to remotely edit a wiki page?

thank you in advance for your support and the great work you're doing with Mylyn.

Best Regards,
Davide Dalle Carbonare
