Re^3: Good Intentions: Wikisyntax for the Monastery (solved: "writeln wiki-toggle")

in thread Good Intentions: Wikisyntax for the Monastery

Maybe have the <b>*Wiki?*</b> be a link back to Good Intentions: Wikisyntax for the Monastery, in case someone forgets their Wiki syntax from one visit to the next. :-)

Also, the syntax accepted by the nodelet hack seems to be split between the spoiler of the original post and a reply (and here for https extension, and probably other posts that I haven't noticed). It makes it rather disjointed to see what's translated by the nodelet hack. It might be nice to have all the currently-valid syntax summarized somewhere in the root post (maybe in a third section alongside code and demo sections) -- or at least update demo with the additional linking options and the features like <nowiki> which have been added over time.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Hello pryrt

    Welcome among the elite of MonkWiki-Users! ;-)

    > Maybe have the *Wiki?* be a link back to Good Intentions: Wikisyntax for the Monastery,

    Excellent idea! ;)

    > Also, the syntax accepted by the nodelet hack seems to be split between the spoiler of the original post and a reply

    Yeah, I know ... :(

    It's because

    • a) it's work in progress and
    • b) I'm keeping the users informed about changes. (there are no update notifications in PM)
    My plan is to refactor the code in a way that it becomes self-documenting in a doc-stringish way.

    Like that the documentation would be generated by the code and would stay up-to-date.

    I also plan to add buttons to the bottom row to insert markup and pop-up the help message.

    Cheers Rolf

      It's always hard to keep documentation up-to-date with the actual product.

      doc-string
      Maybe you should write a POD nodelet hack that can work in conjunction with, or separately from, the Wikisyntax? ;-) It could be "fun" to alternate betweeen writing whole posts in POD and writing just the documentation for the Wikisyntax with POD syntax.

      Thanks for all your work on this.

        Do you mind read?

        Actually I'm thinking of making the mark-up configurable, because the concept is flexible enough to switch grammars on the fly (like to BB-Code/POD/various Wiki-Flavours)

        Special casing an embedded <pod> </pod> area wouldn't be difficult, but someone would be needed to write / port the POD parser to JS though.

        At the moment it's easier to copy a HTML-selection from CPAN or Perldoc and to strip the non-approved tags.

        Self preservation, after over 8000 posts I'd risk to get crazy otherwise. Especially when posting from mobile.

        PS: *Wiki?* is a link now. :)

        Cheers Rolf
