And how for something very different…
It’s now about 20 hours after that work started, i haven’t slept in 26 hours, and Fabien and i now have:
- A reasonable parser (only missing a few markup features): http://code.google.com/p/wikiwym/
- An application to demo it: http://wikiwym.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/index.html
- And another application which allows the user to load arbitrary wiki pages from arbitrary Google Code-hosted projects and preview them in raw and HTML modes. That code can then be pasted back into the Google Code wiki editor when editing is finished: http://fossil.wanderinghorse.net/demos/wikiwym/
Basically, that last app provides an editor environment for people who edit wiki pages of arbitrary Google Code projects. The app cannot save the data back to Google Code for you, but it provides a relatively effective interface for editing wiki markup. If you make a mistake while typing in the editor, for example forgetting to close an inlined markup tag (bold, italics, etc.), the preview mode will prominently mark the error so you know where to fix it (and what to fix).
