Help:External editors

The educational technology and digital learning wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

When writing an larger piece of text, it is more convenient to use an external editor. Starting Mediawiki 1.5 there is a good framework for this.

However, the current reference implementation is not installation friendly and needs some system admin skills

  • Perl-based reference implementation
    • DSchneider uses this on his Linux box. Needs some installation work not that difficult on Linux at least. Wiki serves a special mime type that calls the perl script which in turn works with any UTF-8 capable editor (I use Gnu Emacs).
