    ENG Wikisym2008: WYSIWYG & Wiki Editors ENG Wikisym2008: WYSIWYG & Wiki Editors Presentation Transcript

    • WikiSym 2008 Wiki Editors From Wiki Markup To WYSIWYG And Spatial Wikis
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis 2
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Observations • Novice users often need assistance with wiki markup. • About half of “collaborative edits” is created to fix up markup. 3
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Observations • There is a plenty of wiki markup syntaxes, each of them requires some additional work to get used to. • Wiki Creole project is finished after two years of development, ’08 session was pretty same as ‘07 4
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Observations • There was even some side talks on introducing WYSIWYG into Wikipedia. 5
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Conclusions • Wiki markup have reached its limits and about to stagnation. • WYSIWYG seems to be close future for editing text in wikis. 6
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Implementing WYSIWYG Wiki Markup, Shoo Away! 7
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Stage I “Two In One” • Wiki & HTML editors are both supported simultaneously • User can switch editor during edit, with possible minor loss of markup (such as complex tables from HTML) 8
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Stage II “WYSIWYG” • Default editor — WYSIWYG • Support team should work on conflict situations to find missing features and fix issues with transition from wiki markup to WYSIWYG. 9
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Are You Scared? re e he ar u Yo Wiki WYSIWYG Markup editor If you find over-decorated pages — feel free to fix them. This is wiki after all! 10
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Next Station ar You re he e Wiki WYSIWYG Spatial Markup editor Wiki 11
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis How’s “Spatial” Look Like? Sample image from Tinderbox software Current state of spatial software is most appropriate from collaborative Mind-Mapping. 12
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Spatial Wiki Samples • ShyWiki — wiki engine capable to compose pages as spatial collection of text and image blocks • Tinderbox — standalone Mind-Mapping software • Socs — research project for social network visualization for Wikipedia community 13
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis On WikiWord Linking • There is no known solution for inflexion problems with WikiWords (which is actual for Slavic languages) • WikiName: a short address or a brief title? • WYSIWYG is not well suited for WikiWords detection & linking as you type them 14
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Linking Outside • Links to issues from bugtrackers (JIRA) • Links to people pages (in some social networks) • Other “inter-wiki” stuff, which is used in encyclopedias mostly 15
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Obvious Solution: Auto Complete! • Easy to implement in WYSIWYG • Common interface for all kinds of links • Helps fight typos & inflexions • Allows to provide additional information on link target while linking 16
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Next Actions • After WYSIWYG implementation we plan to add autocomplete-based link creation supporting not only links to other wiki pages, but a bugtracker issues, people links, etc. 17
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Table Issues • Table-related issues are common to intranet wikis. • Current wiki-engines don’t focus much on issues with tables. • WYSIWYG helps sometimes, but does not cover all the issues. 18
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Markup Tables • low on cell amount • rich markup inside cells • WYSIWYG is the most effective tool 19
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Data Tables • Zounds of simple-decorated cells, often only numbers inside. • MS Excel is used for data preprocessing frequently. • Convenient to store as .XLS files. 20
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Next Actions • Files should be uploaded from the edit screen (from WYSIWYG toolbar?) • Uploading a file leads to insertion its contents into page • XLS/CSV-files should be inserted as tables, not “download” links. 21
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Future Investigation • There was some talks on successful WebDAV integration on the conference. • We plan to investigate, how we can organize access to wiki through some kind of “network drive” interface, so user can open attached file in his preferred table processor, make changes and simply save the file. 22
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis So • WYSIWYG is going to replace wiki markup • Autocomplete should be used to handle linking instead of WikiWords • Big data-oriented tables should be treated as XLS-files. • Spatial Wiki — young but interesting technology that can replace WYSIWYG sometimes. Not now. 23
    • WikiSym 2008: wiki markup, WYSIWYG and Spatial Wikis Authors and contributors • Nikolay Yaremko makiwara@humanemagica.com • Konstantin Kolomeetz kolomeetz@yandex-team.ru and other WikiSym participants More WikiSym 2008 stories? http://wikisym2008.humanemagica.com 24
