Presentation at FrOSCon#

On Sunday, I gave a talk at FrOSCon, Free and Open Source Software Conference in St. Augustin near Bonn, Germany. While turnout was relatively low due to all the other interesting lectures at the same time, I was still able to pass out a lot of handouts, including a new German-language handout (front(info) and back(info)). I also spoke with Henri Bergius, a developer of the Midgard Wiki, who expressed interest in adding support for a Creole parser and asked that their wiki engine be added to the Engines planning list.

Presentations at Wikimania in Taipei and Strategy for MediaWiki#

News_blogentry_160807_1/Explaining Creole at Wikimania
We presented WikiCreole and its practical applications - the future of wiki interaction at Wikimania 2007 on 05-Aug-2007. Creole was also a hot topic during a panel discussion on The Future of Wikis with Ward Cunningham, Jack Herrick, James Forrester, Dirk Riehle and Erik Möller. We had a poster presentation and passed out 200 handouts as well as giving a lecture. You can see both sides of our handout at CheatSheet/whatcreole.pdf(info) and CheatSheet/wikicreole1.pdf(info).

Our current strategy with regards to MediaWiki is not to focus on Wikipedia, but rather to find a developer to implement an alternative parser, so that those starting new wikis using MediaWiki can choose whether they wish to run their new wiki using traditional MediaWiki markup or Creole.

Jim R. Wilson stated his thoughts on Wikitech-L about the possible ease of implementing Creole in MediaWiki due to the PEAR Text_Wiki Package: "I'm not an expert on PEAR, so I can't be sure if this would be an acceptable engine, but if it is - then the project would appear to be a simple plumbing job at this point."

Creole 1.0 is live!#

Last week we sent out a press release to announce that Creole 1.0 is stable and live. In the past week, developers of the two most popular wiki engines (TWiki and MediaWiki) have been discussing how to best implement it. We will be having another IRC meeting on July 24 at 21:00 GMT to discuss ways to promote Creole.

Last night's IRC meeting, 2007-Jun-26#

In our latest IRC chat last night, we had the following participants: Christopher Dent, Radomir Dopieralski, Martin Junghans, Mattis Manzel, Yves Piguet, Christoph Sauer, Chuck Smith and Mark Wharton. An archive of our chat can be found at http://www.wikicreole.org/wiki/26JunMeeting. We approved Multiline List Items and decided to use space within nowiki to escape the closing triple curly brackets.

We will have another follow-up meeting on how to promote Creole on Tuesday, 2007-Jul-03, 21:00 GMT, IRC channel #creole on freenode.

Last night's IRC meeting, 2007-Jun-19#

We had a very productive IRC chat last night with the following participants: Radomir Dopieralski, Martin J, Yves Piguet, Christoph Sauer, Alex Schroeder and Chuck Smith. An archive of our chat can be found at 19 Jun Meeting. We successfully covered the topics of whitespace before horizontal rules and url escaping rules. As for whitespace, we decided as a general rule that leading whitespace is allowed before Creole elements, for example: headings, list items, horizontal rules and tables.

Now only two issues remain: whether to have multiline list items and how to escape the ending triple curly braces within nowiki. It is asked that after you explore the issues, to please indicate your position in the Creole 1.0 Poll.

We will have another follow-up meeting on Tuesday, 2007-Jun-26, 21:00 GMT, IRC channel #creole on freenode.

Adding escape character to core 1.0#

After we published Creole 1.0 for comment, the only complaint we received was that the escape character was not in the core as mentioned by Mark Wharton and Oliver Horn. So, we are now adding the escape character and are open for discussion until June 13. Since it will be frozen for two years, we want to make sure 1.0 is as good as possible.
