This page is reserved for discussion about [implementation] of Creole in TikiWiki. The item is on our [[|wishlist]]. There is no set date at the moment.

My (marclaporte) impression: I am very pleased and impressed by the huge amount of research, work and thought put into picking each syntax for Creole. I much appreciate reading the various reasoning pages. Many things are the same or very similar to TikiWiki. For the things that are different, I sometimes feel the Creole way is better. For some other things, I need to think about it a bit more :-)

#Interesting syntax:
##Double square brackets for external links is better in creole than the current single brackets used by Tiki (accidental linking currently happens as described at LinksReasoning). Note: The current wiki also has the same issue. See the link to implementation at the top.
#// is nice for italic, so is __ for underscore
#Some of the syntax (bold vs underscore, box vs superscript) would conflict but nothing catastrophic at first glance
#Creole has some interesting [[CreoleAdditions|Additions]] as well.

Things to consider:
#Tiki doesn't not have the culture of an optional plugin/module/extension which you pick and choose from 3 different similar features/options. If we go along with this, it'll be in the main code base, installed by default. More on this at
#Current install base [[|in the tens of thousands]] so we need a smooth migration path (data and UI). We could add some of the syntax which doesn't conflict and promote those until we eventually phase out the old way.
#Tiki is not just a wiki, but also forum, blog, file gallery, calendar, etc. so we have internal links vs external links and we have a syntax to reuse content in the wiki (ex.: upcoming 10 events, last 10 articles)
#It would be nice to simplify current plugin syntax 
#Tiki parser is rock-solid and hasn't significantly been changed for years. Any change could have unintended side effects.
