Patch that adds a parser function "medialocalurl" and creates a new alias "mediafullurl" for "filepath". (2.71 KB, patch)

Description Olaf Lenz 2008-10-08 12:15:09 UTC
Created attachment 5402 [details]
Patch that adds a parser function "medialocalurl" and creates a new alias "mediafullurl" for "filepath".

I want to propose the attached patch, that will do the following:
* It introduces a new parser function "medialocalurl", that will returns the local URL of the given media file (e.g. [{{medialocalurl:foobar.jpg}} an image])
* Corresponding to the parser functions "localurl" and "fullurl", this function complements the parser function "filepath", that returns the full url.
* To better represent this correspondance, it also renames the function "filepath" to "mediafullurl". 
* For compatibility, it keeps the parser function "filepath" as an alias of "mediafullurl".

If the patch is accepted, I will gladly write the (still missing) documentation (in-code, and on the Mediawiki wiki).

Olaf, thank you for the patch.  I'm sorry that it's taken us so long to review it.  In the three years since you posted it, the codebase has changed so much that it no longer cleanly applies to trunk.  Do you think the functionality is still necessary, when you look at what's now in MediaWiki 1.18 (and, more pertinently, in trunk?)  If so, we would be interested in knowing so that Gabriel and Brion can work with you to include it in the parser rewrite they're working on.

Thanks; I await your response.  And again, my regrets on the delay.

Patch no longer applies to trunk, per automated testing by Rusty Burchfield,

Meanwhile, the patch is obsolete, as I can generate the link that I needed via the standard [[]]-syntax.
