  • Question: Is there a QT workgroup or existing program that provides build capability for Mediawiki?

  • Moderators

    What do you mean by "build capability"? MediaWiki is written in PHP; a server can run it without building it.

  • I am seeking to re-create the MediaWiki API to work more efficiently with media, typically created in using QT. I will be working on a brand new interface, converting the majority of the PHP files to a QT friendly version and adding various extensions which will incorporate the content viewers/galleries for end user usage.

    Mediawiki is pre-built; but customization may change its overall build; I am looking for a workgroup here at QT who are already working on different versions (i.e: Semantic MW, etc.).

    Any suggestions?

    Sorry for the late reply. No, I'm not aware of anyone in the Qt community who is working on MediaWiki.

    You probably want to look at web technologies. Qt is for making native apps for desktop, mobile, and embedded systems.

  • Is there a way to create a MediaWiki group here? I have tons of PHP and CSS douments that could be used to make widgets and other QT related content.

    MediaWiki is an open source environment, providing resources that are easily ported into or from other applications. Possibilities for the new group to discuss include:

    Basic QT-Mediawiki Resources

    Developer Environments

    Advanced Widgets and Scripting

    New UI Components and Skins

    Rendering and 3D Usage

    Networking and Mobility Apps

    Operating Systems

    These are just a few forum suggestions for the QT-Mediawiki group. A snippet/sample submission sub forum may also be used.

    Any information on how to form a group will be appreciated.

    I'm afraid I don't fully understand your plan...

    Could you please provide an example of your "PHP and CSS documents that could be used to make widgets and other Qt-related content"?
