Introduction

In this talk, I'd like to briefly introduce and demo some extensions we've developed at gesinn.it recently:

IDs and Labels

Those two extensions in combination with Semantic Title allow some interesting use cases

  • IDProvider: Generate random (UUID...) or incremental ID's. Uses the database to remember current increments. (stable)
  • Substitutor: One-time string substitution, useful for generating ID's, timestamps or random numbers (stable)

Semantic Dependencies

Some more rather simple extensions

  • QRLite: Simple QR Lite graphics in PNG and SVG format that are generated on the fly instead of uploaded in MediaWiki. (stable)
  • SimpleTooltip: A simple tooltip extension that supports inline-text and an info icon. Has no dependencies, but additional support for SemanticForms. (stable)
