README
HTML::WikiConverter readme
==========================

HTML::WikiConverter is an HTML to wiki converter capable of converting
HTML source into a variety of wiki dialects. It's aimed at folks who
are converting vanilla HTML websites into wikis.

The following dialects (and more) are supported:

  DokuWiki
  GoogleCode
  Kwiki
  Markdown
  MediaWiki
  MoinMoin
  Oddmuse
  PbWiki
  PhpWiki
  PmWiki
  SnipSnap
  Socialtext
  TikiWiki
  UseMod
  WakkaWiki
  WikkaWiki

INSTALLATION

The HTML::WikiConverter module is just an interface; you must select
the wiki dialects you would like to use. You may install dialect
modules individually (see below) or install Bundle::HTMLWikiConverter
to get most of the dialect modules in one shot:

  % perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::HTMLWikiConverter'

For just the HTML::WikiConverter interface:

  % perl -MCPAN -e 'install HTML::WikiConverter'

Individual dialects can be installed separately; for example:

  % perl -MCPAN -e 'install HTML::WikiConverter::MediaWiki'
  % perl -MCPAN -e 'install HTML::WikiConverter::PhpWiki'

SYNOPSIS

Converting HTML to wiki markup is easy:

  use HTML::WikiConverter;
  my $wc = new HTML::WikiConverter( dialect => 'MediaWiki' );
  print $wc->html2wiki( $html );

The included html2wiki utility converts on the command line:

  % html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki \
              --base-uri http://en.wikipedia.org \
              --wiki-uri /wiki/ \
              input.html > output.mw

A web application is also provided with this distribution, called
HTML::WikiConverter::WebApp. It provides a web interface to this
module and any installed dialects. Detailed instructions on
installation and usage are provided in the INSTALL file.

PREREQUISITES

The following are required for a basic installation:

  * Test::More
  * Pod::Usage
  * Class::Data::Inheritable
  * Params::Validate
  * URI and URI::Escape
  * HTML::TreeBuilder
  * HTML::Tagset
  * HTML::Entities

CGI::Application and XML::Writer are required if you will be using the
installed web application, HTML::WikiConverter::WebApp. (My apologies;
I'll make them optional in a future release.)

BUGS

This module is far from perfect. Please report bugs to rt.cpan.org.

THANKS TO

  * Tatsuhiko Miyagawa for suggestions and code
  * Dave Schaefer for the PbWiki dialect and for the idea behind the
    new C<attributes()> implementation.
  * Martin Kudlvasr for fixing a bug in how 'wrap_in_html' was applied to
    HTML read from files
