09:17 masak joined #november-wiki
09:47 lichtkind joined #november-wiki
09:47 lichtkind masak: looked at http://november-wiki.org/ recently?
09:48 masak yes, it's down after the feather reboot.
09:48 masak sorry about that.
09:48 lichtkind nop
09:48 lichtkind i just wanted write something today
09:48 masak I'll email viklund about it now. he has the start keys.
09:49 lichtkind masak: because im nearly  finished with http://wxperl.pvoice.org/w/index.php/WxPerlTablet for now
09:49 zarah lichtkind's link is also http://tinyurl.com/yzwgthn
09:49 masak nice
09:49 lichtkind masak: yeah and it teached me again why social wiki sucks
09:50 lichtkind if we have code tags
09:50 lichtkind you need allow links and other stuff inside it
09:50 lichtkind and code has to be monospaced
09:50 masak nod.
09:51 masak I'd love to see what you just said formalized in some tests for November's MediaWiki parser.
09:51 masak that'll go a long way in helping me implement it correctly.
09:52 lichtkind schoul i write specs?
09:52 masak specs are not necessary, but tests help a lot.
09:59 lichtkind you mean examples
09:59 masak examples formalized into tests.
09:59 lichtkind what i ment with codeblocke aplies also to indented boxes
09:59 masak that's good to know.
10:00 masak in MediaWiki markup, indentation is simply the dd of a dl.
10:00 lichtkind what?
10:00 masak they are the definition part of a definition list.
10:00 masak so you write ':foo' in your source.
10:01 masak and it comes out as <dl><dd>foo</dd></dl>
10:01 lichtkind i mean the shadow boxes that you create if you dont start lines at the first char
10:01 masak my point is that they are no more special than that, and that all normal markup can be used within them.
10:01 lichtkind to have links inside them was very important for the wxperl tablet
10:01 lichtkind yes thats the point
10:02 masak with the fixed-width mode, I'm not so sure.
10:02 masak but I seem to recall most markup works within them.
10:02 lichtkind i ment " foo" not ":foo"
10:02 masak aye.
10:02 masak at least bold and italics. probably links too.
10:02 lichtkind but yes links should work in both cases
10:02 masak heh. for once, we're on topic in here. :)
10:03 lichtkind i dont know exactly how to write november test, simply [[ a internal link ]] shoul produse same output as [[a_internal_link]]
10:04 lichtkind masak: we improve every day :)
10:05 masak lichtkind: take a look at http://github.com/viklund/november/blob/​master/t/markup/mediawiki/05-headings.t
10:05 zarah masak's link is also http://tinyurl.com/yhzs5r8
10:05 masak that's a test file written in the old style.
10:05 masak here's one written in the new style. a bit neater, IMO: http://github.com/viklund/november/blob/mas​ter/t/markup/mediawiki/12-unordered-lists.t
10:05 zarah masak's link is also http://tinyurl.com/ylr2lhf
10:06 lichtkind the other thing would be test [[internal link|label]] again <a href="servername/page">label</a>
10:06 masak aye.
10:07 lichtkind and  [url label] again <a href="url">label</a>
10:09 masak nod.
10:09 masak some of these I'm pretty sure do have tests already.
10:10 lichtkind allright
10:10 lichtkind but to the first test so you need just to copy one of these tests and fill the example in
10:14 masak sorry, that didn't parse for me. try again.
10:15 lichtkind i mean that you just have to take one of these tests and fill in what i wrote
10:16 masak that's right.
10:17 masak my current focus, under the assumption that I have a focus, is on passing the current suite of tests, though.
10:17 masak not on writing new ones.
10:17 masak but others are welcome to write new ones.
10:30 lichtkind well i want now care more about kephra
10:31 lichtkind padre guys beg for some beating
10:34 lichtkind masak: that usually the point where people turn silent :)
10:35 masak in this case, it was silent approval :)
10:35 masak I approve of competition between Perl-based editors.
10:48 lichtkind masak: yes thats point there are in the same league even i prefer the more minimalistic approach like vi, writing now blogpost about it
