I’ve written several MediaWiki extensions, mainly for the CLUG Wiki. I don’t think any of them are particularly beautiful or maintained, but they are an essential part of our wiki, and might be useful to somebody out there…
Written for ClugPark, this extension displays all the images in a category together, as a gallery.
Written for the Mailing Lists page, this extension displays mailman subscribe forms.
href when you mouse over an e-mail link. I think it’s spambot-proof.
This is my script for migrating from Wordpress to Drupal. I know that there is already a migration script out there, but I still wrote my own for a few reasons:
So here it is.
Limitations and bugs:
wp-). This is messy, but while Drupal’s multi-database system is a cool and would be perfect, it’s unworkable when you are debugging. Errors seem to be hooked in drupal, and if you have a broken SQL query (for example) the error handling code hooks Drupal themes, which aren’t findable in the alternate-db world you are visiting.
Todo list (Things amatomu does that I don’t care for, and thus haven’t coded):
Available from Drupal.org. Releases for Drupal 5 and 6 are available.
The scripts used to generate the album on my previous web site. The thumbnails are generated with Python (using ImageMagick’s convert) and displayed with a PHP script. This split approach keeps the scripts’ file-size down while not needing PHP to process any images, which keeps the speed up.
It’s very primitive, but can look quite nice, and is easily automated.
I helped Robbster out on #clug today, building php4 for feisty (it’s been dropped after edgy, in favour of php5). If you want to install it, don’t care about security holes, and want to use the debs I created, add this line to your apt sources list, and go wild:
If on the other hand you want to know how to do it (so when the next PHP security hole appears tomorrow, you can build the latest version yourself), read on:
I’ve never used pbuilder before, so it was fun:
/etc/pbuilderrc to point to your closest mirror, and uncomment the
COMPONENTSline (so that you get universe included)
Now pbuilder is ready for work. Get the latest sources from debian (Download those 3 files at the end, dsc, orig.tar.gz and diff)
Sit back and watch…
When it’s done, you probably want to create a trivial repository of your debs:
Then add this to your
Wohoo. Remember to watch out for those security holes…
