The prettiest MediaWiki you've ever seen


MediaWiki derives its structure from links, templates and categories. You don’t need to do very much to develop something quite powerful. This site called culturalcartography.net only uses links, for example. They skinned up their MediaWiki and used it to develop the bulk of the site’s content, then wrote their own SVG interface that calls their MediaWiki API and presents the link web in a dynamic and interesting way.

I found this out from a paper called Building an SVG interface to MediaWiki (full paper) at SVG Open, which is currently on in Nuremberg.


Pretty skin for MediaWiki.


The edit box: see, it’s really MediaWiki underneath!


The custom-built SVG interface view that calls on the MediaWiki page of the same name, showing the link web between this page and others in the same wiki.
