The Sample Programs Wiki Generator
Currently, the Sample Programs Wiki Generator repo houses the
generate-wiki.py script which
we use in the Sample Programs repository to generate our wiki documentation. The script
is automated by a Travis CI build in the Sample Programs repo.

How It Works
generate_wiki.py script works by analyzing the information in the Sample Programs
repository and storing that information in objects. These objects are then used to
generate various wiki pages in Markdown.
What is Automated
Currently, the script generates 27 pages: 1 alphabet catalog and 26 alphabet pages.
The alphabet catalog contains a table with links to each alphabet page as well as meta data like the number of scripts and languages per letter. In addition, the alphabet catalog contains the total number of scripts and languages for the entire repo.
Each alphabet page contains a table which lists each language for that particular letter as well as meta data like the number of scripts per language and links to articles and issues.
How to Run
At this time, the wiki generator is hardcoded for the Sample Programs repo. In order to run it,
you can install it as a package using
pip install generate_wiki
After that, you'll need a copy of the Sample Programs repo:
git clone https://github.com/TheRenegadeCoder/sample-programs.git
Finally, you can build the wiki using the following command:
Alternatively, you can clone this repo to run the
generate_wiki.py script directly:
python generate-wiki.py /path/to/sample-programs/repo/archive
Both solutions are designed to handle repo exploration from the
/archive/ directory. If successful, you should
begin to see print statements for the various links under test for The Renegade Coder. When finished, you'll
/wiki/ directory next to your script which contains the wiki.
At this point, you can push the wiki directly to the Sample Programs wiki.
