Final Thesis: A Wiki Framework for the Sweble Engine

Abstract: Along with the popularization of wikis, the underlying wiki technologies became hot topics in the research community. The open source research group developed a formal parser for Wikitext, the wiki markup language of MediaWiki. The parser generates a high-level and machine-accessible representation of wiki content so that it can be easily queried and translated into arbitrary target formats. Furthermore, they proposed a framework based on the wiki object model (WOM) to simplify and improve wiki content transformation and refactoring. The WOM is a generalized data structure that uncouples from the syntactic idiosyncrasies of wiki markup languages. The goal of this thesis is to develop a fully-functional wiki engine, which connects the above mentioned components, adds a storage solution with revision control and a web frontend. Meanwhile, the software implementation should be well-structured and modularized in order to favor the further extensions in the future.
