Getting into MediaWiki development


#1

Welcome to the PostgreSQL/MediaWiki discussion space

http://pgwiki.org is a shortcut to this place.

Here are a couple of links to help get you started with MediaWiki development:

Cloning MediaWiki core:

git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/core.git

Nice idea re the short URLs! You own those domains I presume? (Keep in mind that this Discourse is still an experiment—from what I understand—and so it’s future isn’t guaranteed.)

I’ve been meaning to do more with postgres; been learning about postgis a bit lately, at a local geogeeks group. :slight_smile: Is great fun!

Yes, I know it is experimental - actually a shortcut may help to move it somewhere else if required.

I have bought those domains prior to my PgConf.eu 2016 talk to let interested people to quickly jump in and follow up if they can.

Actually it could be interesting to try a bit tighter integration of PostGIS with MediaWiki - some things could be delivered directly from there into articles!

Let me know if you managed to install wiki on PostgreSQL as well…
