How to use it

The Mediawiki extension for the Cmaac data model. See beta.commonaccord.org.

@hazardj thinks the only things you need to do to get this working in Mediawiki are the following. LMK.

  1. Install MW
  2. Add the following into your LocalSettings.php

require_once( "$IP/extensions/Binder/binder.php" );

  1. In the extentions directory, create the Binder directory. Add this file as binder.php:

Many thanks to Andrew. Some fiddling by @hazardj under his initials - JGH.

What's this do?

Nested responses:

It adds to MW a function that is like transclusion: A list of pages (Binder) each page can have one or more lists of key/values (Fields) Rendering the Binder starts with a default field ( {Model.Root} ) and looks for it by looking down the succession of lists.
If found in a list, the text of the value is substituted for the {Model.Root} in the text. If not found, then it looks for a page called Model.Root If found, then the text of the page is substituted for the {Model.Root} in the text. If not found, then no substitution is made. Repeat for each {Token} found in the replacement text.

There is a variation (Render with Edit Links) that sort of marks the replacement by putting in a * just before. But totally improvised by @hazardj and buggy. A really impressive version of this was done for the Xwiki platform by Ludovic Dubost.

What it doesn't do:

  • Recursion, prefixing, include other URLs, wrap the spans with metadata to allow easy understanding and editing.

Next Level:

It is used in http://beta.commonaccord.org to codify legal documents.

Next Level: It is an example of the use of this Lisp-like function. See http://beta.commonaccord.org/wiki/About:TechnicalEnablement

Top Level: An iterative semantic web.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
