I'm the coordinator for the Computer Science and Open Source Technology (OST) programs at North Lake College in Irving, TX. I've worked my way through several versions of the Wakka->Wacko->Wikka progeny line. Wakka dead-ended on me, while my Russian never did get any better with Wacko (no, I don't speak Russian, which made it very difficult to work with Wacko beyond the level of an end user). I'm currently using Wikka to host the course notes and other miscellaneous items for the OST program. I would like to see, at some point down the road, a merger of the best of features in both Wacko and Wikka...I believe both have their strong points, and it would be such a waste to see features in one lost on the other.
- I wrote a perl script to migrate my Wacko pages to Wikka. The code is documented, so I won't bore anyone with the details.
- WordcountAction: Needed a quick and dirty wordcount action. Needs more work when time permits...
- Group ACLs -- A very elegant and simple solution for providing group-level granularity to ACLs.
- SpellcheckHack -- Another nice mod. Some typos in the code as posted; see comments for details.
- AnchorAction -- HTML anchors. Again, some minor code changes noted in comments to get this to work.
- Skins -- Testing this on my own site. Still some minor glitches to work through on this, but it's pretty slick once you get it working!
- A de.lirio.us clone (maybe extend one of the existing link actions such as AddLinkAction?)
- A front-end to permit restricted pre-defined operations on a database (i.e., field updates, queries, etc.)
- A quick and dirty handler (such as "Unknown action ""s""") to insert a sig in the editor
