Transforming HTML to WikiText[edit | edit source]

Transforming (hopefully well-formed) HTML to WikiText is required if you want to import HTML content into a wiki. Some editors do well at this, and perhaps the best editor to do this is the Visual editor which now is the default editor for the MediaWiki project.

Parsoid[edit | edit source]

The mw:Parsoid[1] project gives the ability to parse HTML, however the results definitely need to be examined to see how it might be able to work. Take a look at the mw:Parsoid/MediaWiki DOM spec for capabilities.

Example usage

cat uvm.html | webapps/wiki/extensions/parsoid/tests/parse.js --html2wt

Other Classes or Libraries[edit | edit source]

The 'Wikilog' extension [2] is a MediaWiki extension that adds "blogging" features [3] to MediaWiki (e.g. One aspect of the project is a PHP class that transforms HTML to wiki text. See Also, the Wikilog extension makes use of namespaces to create multiple blogs.
