Enterprise MediaWiki


Hi all, 

This list seems to have become idle. Have people stopped using MediaWiki in
enterprises? :-)

I've noticed that a lot of work has been done recently on an
"industrialization guide": 

http://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Manual:Industrialization_guide

I think pages like this are really useful. Over the past few years I've
discovered extensions in a piecemeal fashion.... stumbling across LDAP
Authentication or SimpleSecurity or Semantic Mediawiki/Forms, and wishing I
had found them sooner. To have a single page targeted at enterprise use
definitely makes things easier. However, I think we can go one better..... 

Why not a MediaWiki package/distribution targeted at enterprise use? It
would include: 

* MediaWiki
* Extensions that are useful for enterprise use
* A default configuration suitable for enterprise use

If this is already being done please point me in that direction. 

Dave.

Re: Enterprise MediaWiki

Hi David -

The omCollab project provides a platform for enterprise collaboration and uses MediaWiki as the wiki component. 
http://mike2.openmethodology.org/wiki/OmCollab  We don't change the core code and we stay true to the extension based architecture.

It has been implemented in the enterprise at a few organizations and also supports projects at http://www.openmethodology.org/ and http://www.open-sustainability.org/

All the code is free and open source and we've a reasonably active development community and roadmap.  This project was iniitatially started by BearingPoint but is now run by the MIKE2.0 Governance Association. 
http://mike2.openmethodology.org/wiki/OmCollab_deployment_in_BearingPoint_IM_Solution_Suite

The code is here and since we recently got funding, we've really picked up the pace for development:
http://mike2.openmethodology.org/wiki/Installing_omCollab
http://waterloo.openmethodology.org/trac/omcollab
http://waterloo.openmethodology.org/trac/omcollab/wiki

Hope this helps and we could always use help from people in this community oureselves!

Re: Enterprise MediaWiki

Hi Sean, 

Thanks for the info. The omCollab project looks really interesting. I'm not
sure that it is exactly what I'm after, however. For example, say I wanted
just a wiki, but one that had a rich text editor and authenticated against
my Active Directory domain. Would it be easy to just use the wiki component
of omCollab, or is it all or nothing? 

Regards,
Dave.

As Sean mentioned ("We don't change the core code and we stay true to the extension based architecture."), all we do is integrate MW as the wiki component in omCollab with no hard coding, but extension and skin based. Which means that you can just configure a different skin and all the extensions (except SSO) should work.  (check out http://mike2.openmethodology.org/w/index.php?title=MIKE2.0_Methodology&useskin=monobook)

The only thing you need to watch out for is the Mediawiki:Sidebar, because we extended it to display pop-out menus. So you would have to re-write the content of the article according to Monobook syntax.

Cheers,
Andi

The Zpravodaj journal

Good afternoon,

I help with collecting articles for the Zpravodaj journal of the Czech 
TeXists (http://bulletin.cstug.cz/). Would it be interesting for you to 
prepare an English article on MediaWiki and its relation to TeX (generally 
speaking, TeX-related staff is welcome) and let us publish it in this 
journal? Please let us know what you think about this idea.

We look forward hearing from you.

Customizing the sidebar

Hi,

I tried to add a link to our corporate intranet portal in the sidebar of mediawiki as described in the manual.
I edit the mediawiki:sidebar page and add a line
** http://www.example.com \ Portal to the page.

After saving the page I do not see the Portal link in the sidebar.
If I add a header like:
* Imprortant links

It is visible in the sidebar after saving the page.

We are also looking for solutions to add more content to the sidebar, like search boxes for our enterprise
search,google search and corporate people search engines.

Any suggestions?
