[MediaWiki-l] Using MediaWiki to front-end a log server?
Has anyone use MediaWiki plus Cargo or SMW to act as a fronted-end to a
SQL based log aggregation sever? It would be trivial to access and mix
historical data and notes about servers with that kind of setup.
If someone has already made this as a product or a project, this is
your chance to plug.

I am a user of the mediawiki softwares to build specialized SQLite
wikis - as a user/author personal management tool/interface/blog,
etc. that can be replicated for back-up and convenience on several
machines. I run this way several hundred of thematics or friends'
sites I name "bliks" ("live book in line"). This allows
pages/personal positions/etc. without being limited by the wikipedic neutrality
I am asked to make it a product that friends and cities could use.
The way I manage the farm of them calls for one hour or two to set
one bliks with all the basic pages, images, etc. I am willing to
consider a deployment package on an USB key or as part of an extended
However, this should be rationalized to integrate it with other
non-mediawiki features. So, I would be interested in knowing (sorry
for the number of questions) :
- if someone has attempted such a project already ?
- where could I find a simple (images included) comprehensive
description of the mediawiki software system architecture ?
- if there is a place where every command made possible by
main/extensions solutions and the corresponding PHP tool(s) are
listed and introduced - or how should I proceed to build such a reference ?
- if there were attempts to use functional programming to support the
mediawiki core (server side) instead of PHP ? This must is to stay
fully compatible with the mediwiki page format.
- if there is a reliable way to protect access/write rights on single
pages (so no one else than a specific authorized user can update a page ?)
- last but not least: would there be some interested in sharing in my
project (on/outside of this list) ?
