How I use the engine.
I use LFTP and I automate the synchronization process after I exit my editor.
Differences from MediaWiki ∞
TODO: Make a conversion script from the raw version, e.g. this into the markup language I use here. It seems easy enough to do, and that work would be the backbone of conversion scripts from various languages.
Also, if I support certain languages well, I could use other people's tools to convert to that base language and then my own scripting to convert from that base language to my own. Sweet.
For lists, I use a dash (
-) instead of an asterisk (
I use Geany for a number of reasons:
I already program in it.
- Code folding
- Syntax highlighting
- Inline terminal
Any editor will do. However, there are some things to watch for:
Make sure your editor doesn't remove trailing spaces
- Otherwise you cannot have a
<pre>block with empty lines, without resorting to using a space and
to create one.
- Otherwise you cannot have a
Setting up a web browser ∞
This is to let you easily open source files in an external text editor.
Setting up Firefox ∞
This is a clusterfuck at the moment, and seems to be intentionally screwed up. It's changed a number of times and I'm only able to get what I want working because stuff I did a long time ago was grandfathered into the most recent Firefox. =( I'll have to revisit this issue another time, to help others with this problem..

- What are MIME types?
- To find your mimeTypes.rdf directly, visit about:support
Apparently you're expected to hack your [[[http://kb.mozillazine.org/mimeTypes.rdf |mimeTypes.rdf]] directly.
I /think/ what ended up happening is that I piggybacked
asc on a pgp application to open using a text editor.
<RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:mimetype:application/pgp-signature" NC:value="application/pgp-signature" NC:editable="true" NC:description=""> <NC:fileExtensions>asc</NC:fileExtensions> <NC:fileExtensions>sig</NC:fileExtensions> <NC:handlerProp RDF:resource="urn:mimetype:handler:application/pgp-signature"/> </RDF:Description>
I'm not sure though! To get a new profile working, I ended up just copying my entire mimeTypes.rdf from an old-and-working profile.
earlier stuff which did work but doesn't anymore ∞
- This was removed by its author. It worked at the time and the settings stuck.
MIME Type: text/ascii Description: Extension: asc
FIXME?: For unknown reasons, .txt doesn't work as an extension.
- Was tested, but it's not needed.
- Mozex does not respect accesskeys or pressing enter. I have to click with the mouse. So:
.. I am expecting
.asc links and summon the editor. Yuck.
Setting up Midori ∞
It prompts to open the
.asc file. Is there a way around that? I think that it thinks
.asc is for PGP files.
It saves stuff to
/tmp before opening it with an editor. So your changes are useless! Can that be changed?
A workaround might be to know about the
/tmp and alter the various internal paths to fetch the file from /tmp when a change is seen. This seems needlessly complex.
