releasing WikimediaParser 0.1

Filed under: programming — Tags: , , — tehgeekmeister @ 8:17 pm

It’s a cabalized version of some very rough, but functional, tools I’m using for parsing wikimedia markup.  Currently it has some french wikipedia specific code, but by release 0.2 (which should come soon) I intend to have it general enough to be used for at least any language of wikipedia (and in later releases any wikimedia markup at all).  Anyone who wants to contribute some patches and get it there quicker, feel free to submit patches using darcs send (for now, that is.  I’ll have a darcs repository up on code.haskell.org soon, but for right now I’m locked out of my account).

  1. Shouldn’t that library use the name Mediawiki (the name of the Wiki engine/syntax).

    Wikimedia is the name of the non-profit foundation behind Wikipedia.

    • @Welde Yes it should. I had the name swapped in my head when I made this, and will get the name corrected on the next release, which should be soon anyway.

  2. You could get this integrated into Pandoc, the universal convertor!
