Personal Lively Wiki?

Sean P. DeNigris
Administrator
There are so many cool projects that I'm not sure where to start!

If I want to create my own personal local wiki, what is the best system to start with? I've read about Lively Wiki, but it seems like it is no longer active/available - is that right? Then there's the Webwerkstatt wiki - is it possible to run that locally (and could it be used as a personal wiki)? Is there any wiki functionality built into vanilla LK? Thanks.
Cheers,
Sean

Okay, I have my local copy of LK up and running. I see that if I make a link to Whatever, lively tries to open a local world at Whatever.html. But if the world doesn't exist, I get an error instead of "Creating new worlds can be done by clicking on a link to a not existing world" described in the Lively Wiki paper.

Also, is there any way to control how the link is opened? Opening a new window for each wiki link feels a bit heavy.

Lastly (for the moment ;)), editing existing hyperlinks seems very awkward. Mouseups anywhere on the link open it, regardless of which buttons / modifier keys are pressed. If the link was in a text by itself, the only way I found was to click down in the text and drag, creating a partial selection, until outside the text before releasing the mouse. If there is other text next to the link, I had to click to an adjoining word and then arrow key over. Am I missing something easy here?

Thanks!
Cheers,
Sean

You should use the GitHub-based Lively Kernel to get a local installation: https://github.com/LivelyKernel/LivelyKernel
On GitHub you will also find installation instructions.

Then there's the Webwerkstatt wiki - is it possible to run that locally (and could it be used as a personal wiki)?

It is possible but at this point we would not advice to do so. The WebWerkstatt is _A_ special installation of the system that has a lot of content in it. If you want to start working with your own LK, you should start with a plain/clean system (see above).
Additionally the WebWerkstatt is not based on the GitHub system and both systems differ in some points (like Parts) even though they share a common codebase.

Is there any wiki functionality built into vanilla LK?

Yes, any LK system always has wiki functionality if set up correctly.

Okay, I have my local copy of LK up and running.

From what I read in the bug reports, you might be running a copy of WebWerkstatt?! Please consider switching to the GitHub system.

This paper is quite old and the Lively Kernel has changed a lot since then. This functionality is not built in anymore.

I would not say so if you put opening a new (wiki) page on a level with booting another Smalltalk image (and that is what is like - even though both "images"/worlds share the same kernel code).

On http://lively-kernel.org, there is "To install Lively Kernel on your system locally please see the development section", which links to the installer that I used. If github is the way to install, this should probably be changed…

Also, is it possible/easy to port Lively Wiki features into the current system? Particularly important for wikis would be to auto-create non-existent named worlds on first entry, and version control (IIRC LW used svn, right)? Is the LW code publicly available?

Sean

Hi, Sean -

normally wikis do this with support from the server side. But you can emulate that by not using URLs as links but code that is executed when the text is clicked. The Formatter can generate those links, have a look there to see how this works. To see how a new world can be programmatically created look how the "new" button in documentation/index.xhtml works.
The index page also shows you how to access previous versions in svn. But in lively core this works a bit differently, but the general idea should be the same.

Best, Jens

Hi, Sean --

The error you got was because you also have a server running on port 9001. You can check with

  lsof -i tcp:9001

and kill it with

  kill -9 `lsof -i :9001 -t`

The Lively core github installation comes with version control that does not require SVN and all other wiki features.

Best,

Robert

Ha ha, yes… the other LK server was still running!

Ah, okay. I see the Wiki tab on the top right where I can view previous versions. What do you mean by "all other wiki features"? I see that I can link to another world via AbcXyz.html. Are there other features?

Re: Personal Lively Wiki?

Well, the original idea behind Lively Wiki "just" gave you the ability to visit web pages (worlds), modify their state and behavior, and then save them (maybe under a different name to add new content) and link between them. Basically self contained "Web objects".

We added the PartsBin later but this is now also seen as a "wiki feature".

The recent version of Lively also has a messaging system ("Lively2Lively") that can be used to directly communicate between worlds and exchange objects. We will extend the system in the future to provide more "multi-user awareness" and collaboration that will support working in the wiki.

Best,
Robert
