TikiFest Porto 2008 has ended.

We have some photos and videos.



TikiFest is a tradition in the TikiWiki community. A TikiFest is when there is a meeting between at least 2 TikiWiki contributors that don't usually meet. This is an occasion, usually, to drink adult beverages, get some laptops out and code wildly in group sessions and/or discuss about wiki technology and culture, etc. depending the mood and context. It is a great opportunity for Tiki users and Tiki power users to meet some of the developers and learn more stuff biggrin

This TikiFest is co-located with WikiSym held on September 8-9-10

If you are not a TikiWiki user but are just looking for a place to hang out and get some wifi, by all means, please do join us! biggrin

Suggested topics

1.1.1. AulaWiki

    1. Analyze AulaWiki especially the workspaces (Some things may have been added to main code base since). See new workspaces prototype and development in progress for Tiki socialization TikiSocialization_EN2.pdf (1.17 Mb).
    2. Port to main code base what makes sense to (presumably in 1.11)
    3. DogFood it for mods.two or dev.tw.o (to make it gforge-style)
    4. Make a roadmap for all the rest of the functionality.

Let's make sure it will be compatible with Tiki WikiFarm / Native multi-site/multi-domain handling. A workspace could be a separate domain.

1.1.2. Cross Lingual Wiki Engine

1.1.3. TikiTests

  • Figure out how to make it work on localhost so people can test on their local machine before committing changes to SVN.

1.1.4. Documentation for 2.0

  • Have that feature request coded: http://dev.tiki.org/wish1184
    It has been rated as "9" for almost a year... When coded, it will help a lot to produce a new and updated Tiki Manual pdf for 2.0 and later versions. And it's time to release a new Tiki reference handbook (pdf) for Tiki 2.0

Sylvie: is it still a problem with 2.0. I worked on this. multipage print for structures

  • Improve http://doc.tiki.org/Documentation to make it more "Tiki 2.0" ready
  • Trackers:
    one of the more powerful features in Tiki and one of the less documented to let people take advantage of all their power.
    • produce wink tutorials? produce more static documentation and screenshots? Action field? Compute field?
  • Howto use "profiles": http://profiles.tiki.org so that other people can help on preparing profiles for documented use cases ...

fix bugs which affect to TW community organization (see WhoWhat )

  • filter by summary doesn't show the text input field to me here on dev.tw.o/tracker5: bug1666
  • if tracker linked to a group subscribe from Plugin SUBSCRIBEGROUP should go to insert tracker item: bug1793
  • allow seing username in user tracker at registration time step 2 (filling user tracker item) + compulsory checkbox not working as compulsory: bug1860
    1.10:"Use tracker for more user info." should automatically link username&email from 1st reg. screen : bug1180
  • user info from linked group tracker item gets wrong info for "username" if "usernamemoretext" exists bug1902
  • fix http://dev.tiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Custom+email+message+to+new+tikiwiki.org+registrants

1.1.6. Letters

Marc will explain

1.1.7. New dedicated server

  • Amette & Marc can set up
  • dev.tw.o and doc.tw.o need to be moved urgently

1.1.8. Translating and the Computer 30

Olaf, Alain and Marc can plan strategy

1.1.9. Event Management System profile

Imagine TikiWiki was used to manage an event like WikiSym. What feature set would be needed?

We could interview Ademar who just went through the whole process.

We could

1.1.10. Shopping cart/ecommerce

Shopping Cart

1.1.11. ointegrate

1.1.12. Flex & Tiki

Suzanne will show us some nifty stuff:

The demo consists of a Flex component as a Flash Plug-In that read data from a tracker with dynamic filtering. The data was called from a custom php file to return XML Data output from a Smarty Template. The hope is that the flex components may one day be used as widget/plug-ins in future releases to further enhance the look and feel of Tiki. This represents just one important advance of Tiki and Flash and will utilise some of the exiting new features currently being built into Tiki and planned for the next major release.

1.1.13. Viral TikiWiki


1.1.14. Olaf has some photos on his humble Tiki Wiki page cool


1.1.15. Add your topic here!
