SFML wiki is there
« on: May 07, 2008, 08:49:37 pm »
Hi all :)

I've setup the SFML wiki :
http://www.sfml-dev.org/wiki/en/index

This wiki will be a shared space to put all your contributions about SFML, so feel free to fill it.

You don't have to create a new account, just use your forum login and password to connect to the wiki.

That's all I have to say, you can go explore it and come back to discuss :)

Seems like I'm the first one who visited it !
I can't create a page on it. How do you do that ?

Log in, visit an uncreated page and click the "Create this page" button to the left. :)

But the wiki looks good. I'll post something as soon as I've got something to put up there. :)

I have added a first tutorial on how to download the source code from SVN as this seems to be a common question. It can be found under the "Tutorials" section or here: http://www.sfml-dev.org/wiki/en/miscellaneous/getsvnversion.

I would like to come with a suggestion for the wiki though; it would be a good idea to use the namespace functionality for separate categories on the wiki. As it is now all pages are stored under either :wiki:en or :wiki:fr and this might become messy when there are a lot of pages on the wiki.

Wouldn't it be better to create a new namespace for every category? I put the page I created under the namespace "miscellaneous", which would then be a part of the namespace "tutorials" etc.

I would have changed this myself but the main page is locked. :)

Great, I was planning to add such a tutorial :)

I actually use namespaces. I just noticed that it was not working as intended : on the french wiki, all source codes created locally under fr/sources stay under fr/ instead of fr/sources/. Apparently I missed something. I'll try to fix that :)

By the way, why en/miscellaneous/getsvnversion and not en/tutorials/miscellaneous/getsvnversion, or even en/tutorials/getsvnversion ? (I don't think sub-categories are really necessary)

Ok, I've moved the pages, fixed the links and added a paragraph in the rules page :)

Great. :)
No I don't think subcategories are necessary either.

Well when I made the link to the page I created the miscellaneous category in the current namespace, I was thinking that when you add the tutorial namespace it would become en/tutorials/miscellaneous/getsvnversion.
But on second thought, the page wouldn't move if you just updated the link.
Logical error by me. :)

The Wiki is for code-cxamples, tutorials, howtos and information about SFML-based-projects?

Eveything related to SFML that might be useful ;)
There's no restriction, the main goal is really to allow users to share interesting stuff.
