Media Editor In Moin
I like Wikipedia's editor. I like MoinMoin's wiki. Solution? Marry them!
MoinMoin 1.3 and MediaWiki's editor
Download the necessary parts: mediaInMoin.tar.gz
Uncompress the archive. In the examples below, we will assume you do this in /tmp.
Replace your MoinMoin installation's "PageEditor.py" file with the included "PageEditor.py". On a linux machine, that will look something like this - but your paths will probably be different. You will probably have to be root or have sudo access to do this.
$ cd /usr/local/python2.3/lib/site-packages/MoinMoin/ $ cp PageEditor.py PageEidtor-orig.py $ cp /tmp/mediaInMoin/PageEditor.py PageEditor.py
4. Put the included modified mediawiki source in your wiki's htdocs directory. Again, assuming Linux:
$ cp -r /tmp/mediaInMoin/media/ /usr/local/share/moin/htdocs
5. Install a mediawiki parser. My version is called "mediaplus" and is included in mediaInMoin.tar.gz. This is a slightly modified version of Stefan Merten's original, which you could also use. Mine makes links a little prettier, and does not include "Discussion" links on every page.
Place this parser in your wiki's plugin directory:
$ cp /tmp/mediaInMoin/mediaplus.py /path/to/your/wiki/data/plugin/parser/
6. Lastly, add the following directives to your wiki's configuration to make the media wiki syntax the default syntax, and to use the media editor.
1 use_media_editor = 1 2 default_markup = "mediaplus"
