In this ShowMeDo I start creating a simple wiki that stores it's "wiki text" on the file system. I demonstrate how you can use basic parameters to choose which page to view.
At this point we have the basic code to start writing a real wiki. The next episodes will demonstrate how to use forms to let users create and edit wiki pages. We will also cover how to use regular expressions to identify "wiki words" and have them automatically turned into links - just like a real wiki.
Are you learning Python? To keep the site running clean and ad-free we've started Club ShowMeDo. The club will allow you access to some special videos we're making to pass on programming skills we consider important to the development and enjoyment of Free Open Source Software (FOSS).
The focus at the moment is on developing with the Python programming language, one of the backbones of the FOSS movement with a huge number of included and third-party libraries.
We welcome feedback and we want to hear your ideas.
Showmedo's development is fairly rapid and bugs will inevitably creep in. If you have any problems please drop us a line using the contact address below. Likewise, any suggestions for improvements to the site are gratefully received.
