This is a patch that integrates wikipdf into mediawiki-1.4.5 user interface. I´m
working on phase3 , now.
It is istalled for on my webserver at 184.108.40.206/mw_test0
Users must be logged in to be able to have the "Make a PDF" tab enabled. Feel
free to create an account and use it.
* directory .py files at wikipdf/src/ must be chmod´ed to be executable.
* you must create a wikipdf/tmp/ directory and the webserver must be able to
write on this directory.
The patch file is available at 220.127.116.11/slivre/mediawiki-1.4.5+wikipdf.patch
Created attachment 708 [details]
wikipdf integrated to mediawiki 1.4.5 user interface
Please, keep in mind that this is my first patch ever done. This is my first
contribution to the Free Software , so, there´s a chance that I may commit some
mistakes... I would like to receive advice on how should I proceed.
Thanks you all...
I have just released the very first version of WikiPDF - a
Mediawiki Extension based on wiki2pdf
It is available at:
It still has lots of references to wikipedia and a few bugs. It is the
same as my old patch but now it is coded as an extension, so it can
match a larger number of versions of mediawiki and it does not mess
with mediawiki core anymore.
You can test it on my personal wiki at http://aluno.no-ip.info/juca
The WikiPDF extension would be a great help.
I want to give a small summary from
What is the Best Way to Display Yiddish Text on Websites?
During the past many users (using various browsers and operating systems)
experienced great problems to see pages in Yiddish correctly. Things are
improuving but some sites prefer to display text in Yiddish as "images".
Images just allows to read the text correctly. No way to search, no Google support.
That site proposes to use the / some Yiddish *Precombined* Unicode characters.
Please note that MediaWiki converts *Precombined* Unicode characters to
*Non-Precombined* Unicode characters.
I assume that nobody has made en enquiry about how WP:YI and WIKT:YI renders /
what would be the best way to choose.
I have no idea if PDF rendering on a system would be OK if browser rendering on
the same system is wrong. That would be fine.
Keeping testing the test wiki.

Resolving LATER since there's a separate extension package now.
Changed url to
because http://18.104.22.168/mw_test0 generates error 403 Forbidden
Wiki do Juca is running MediaWiki: 1.5.1 .
best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
[[mw:Extension:Collection]] does this sort of thing these days, and is enabled on Wikipedia sites.
