WikiText: A Wiki Integrated Task Editor

Hackers

Student: Jingwen Ou

Mentor(s): Steffen Pingel

Abstract

This project is part of Google Summer of Code 2008.

The goal is to extend Mylyn’s task editor to provide generic wiki integration, supporting offline rich text editing with syntax highlight, auto-complete, structure outline and rich text preview. The basic mechanism is a source code parser that renders wiki syntax into HTML. Inputted with wiki code and an URL of the wiki system, the parser elegantly translates them into HTML before they are posted to the issue tracking systems. When displayed, any internal links of the bug reports will be directed to correspondent wiki systems.

Detailed proposal is available here: http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~jingweno/soc/SoC2008.pdf.
