Description Peter Halasz 2006-03-05 16:11:41 UTC
I know you're all very busy on Bug 550, but I would to propose the extension of
the mediawiki template engine to work on SVG files.

I have written up a proposal on the motivations, wikisyntax and basic workings.

Details are at:
Comment 1 Zoran Obradovic 2006-03-07 21:56:40 UTC
There's a simpler way to do this. We can simply have an extension which would
turn the following code into an inline image (which can be put into a div and
floated or whatever, as needed):

... foo bar some wiki text...
<svg width="100px">
   svg code
... baz bar wiki text...

We could then put code like that into regular templates and use use parameter
values in them, and transclude them to get customizable maps and charts, without
new namespaces or syntax.

(In reply to comment #1)

There's already an "Inline SVG extension". Can anyone verify if it allows
templates within the svg code? If it does then my enhancement request is redundant.

If it doesn't, then it could be a good starting point.

Not strictly a duplicate, but I'm merging this with general SVG editing anyway
on Rob's orders.
