Are you interested in GrokWiki improvements?

Asked by Steve Schmechel

While trying to grok Grok, I have made some "improvements" to the Grok Wiki sample application. I am not sure if you would be interested in any of the features. They are all pretty simple and I am not sure if any would further the purpose of "being a test bed" or "providing guidance to new users", but here goes:

- Added ability to delete a wiki page and remove the hyperlinks from referencing pages.
- Use ReSTructured Text as the wiki source instead of raw html.
- Remove spaces from wiki page URL's while retaining the link name as the page title in the displayed hyperlink.
- Use the wiki page name as the html title in the rendered page.
- Added ability to order the list of pages and hide pages that you don't want to see in the page list.
- Modified template and stylesheet to provide a two-column layout with navigation menu on the left.

These are mainly items I flushed out trying to use GrokWiki as a replacement for rest2web for small sites where I would like them to be easier to update without running a script or moving to something like Plone.

If you want a copy, I can email or post the files somewhere. If you only use a part of it that cool. (I'm sure you guys could have banged this out in an hour, so I hope it's worth your time to even look at it.) I'm just so happy with Grok, I would like to help out in some way if I can.

Anyway, great job with Grok. It's been a while since I've had so much "fun" working on something like this. I think you really hit a sweet-spot with this project.

Hey Steve,

Could you join grok-dev and repost this question? Questions through
launchpad aren't really a proper part of our workflow yet, and this
way we can discuss it in the mailing list.
