Extension:Semantic Bundle

From semantic-mediawiki.org
This software bundle is no longer being maintained and does not work with recent versions of MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki as well.

Semantic Bundle was a pre-packaged bundle of extensions for use with wikis that are based around the Semantic MediaWiki extension. It can be obtained either through Git or by downloading a single .7z, .tgz or .zip file. See this page for an in-depth documentation and the downloads.

Benefits[edit]

Semantic Bundle provides a number of important benefits over downloading and installing individual extensions; among them:

  • it provides a "best practices" set of extensions around Semantic MediaWiki, based on user experiences
  • it simplifies download, especially for those systems that don't have Git, and especially for those extensions (like ParserFunctions) that don't have a standard downloadable version already
  • it tries to guarantee working code by using tagged, stable versions of extensions whenever possible
  • it simplifies installation by providing a pre-generated list of includes
