Two people have built separate sets of scripts to produce an ebook based on Fairfield Project contents.

2012 automated export

A work in progress by BookMan.

  • Current (2013-02-17) state:
  • History:
    • 2012-12-09: Image caching module working, mirroring process optimized
    • 2012-10-28: ebook generation finished, now working on all the special cases
    • 2012-10-14: refactored whole mirroring process into classes, to enable use for other backends (besides ePub generation)
    • 2012-10-08: mirroring (with changes update function) and basic page parsing done
  • Todo:
    • structure generation (might need tags)
    • stylesheet special cases


I think the easiest way to get a book like structure is to tag 'section' pages (those that are in the new menu bar?) with a special tag book:section, which then serve as root pages for everything below. This gives a more booklike result, than a mere concatenation of pages.

  • perhaps an book index page like nav:top would be even easier. And it gives the ability to provide a sequence.
  • This ebook-index will also hold configuration information. That way the whole export can be configured via that wiki page, and now fiddeling with unaccessible config files is needed.
    • is this bad? I don't think so… the wiki needs a user and misbehaving users can be blocked, right?

Pages that should not go into the book could be tagged _ebook-ignore (already done this for this page). In addition special pages are also ignored.

unformatted pages could also be skipped… I will see how I can include them into the book.

I also think that we need to rethink the timeline. I made a sortable timeline module for the MoinMoin wiki, perhaps something semilar can be found for this thing. But this is something I would start after a basic book export is finished.

Need to detect page redirects! Look for wikirequest in header of page html, example st-jerome-in-japan.

WIKIREQUEST.info.requestPageName = "order-of-the-sword-of-st-jerome";

Our choice to move fixed pages that don't have a live version (mostly this would be fiction) to the archive: category requires me to change the mirroring so this pages are found. Currently all archive: pages are ignored.
