Askemos 2000 (Archive)

The wikiweb ( ) was probably the first application, which used mixed case words (wich are common for abbreviations and multiy word identifiers in some programming languages) to automatically create cross references.

This scratchpad application uses the same convention, see HowToEditThisPage and ContextViewUsage for more details. Future versions may support , please send comments or help, if you would like oplm support.

Somehow the structure of Wiki and hence these pages seems simillar to , I just found zigzag in Nov 2001 and did not dive into it.

Thanks to Roland Hjerppe, I've got to know (Oct 2004) about xanadu/udanax aims and internal which bear some simillarities in the aim to server for global hypertext higher level structure (udanax could well be an Askemos application: it's structure has a few properties I'd implement at application level).

Shawn Rutledge wrote: Yes as I mentioned, I wanted to build a wiki. But lately I've been thinking that editing wiki-style text should just be one possible UI. It's hard to say that the wiki syntax is a canonical way of storing web content when nobody can even agree on that syntax (Alejandro's, Felix's, MediaWiki? etc. are all different). So I want to build an object tree that represents a web page and store that, and dynamically generate a wiki-like editing UI. Then an alternative UI could be a Javascript one where you have wordprocessor-style controls rather than having to use wiki syntax; and another would be a full GUI; etc.

OK, that's exactly the thinking behind the wiki style I included in Askemos/BALL. I'd never store syntax, which is hardly readable in 200 years, as Dan Bricklin has put it. It stores plain HTML (as parsed tree in the pstore module and standard XML syntax in the file system) plus some XML for meta data, lock handling etc.

You can edit HTML or wiki syntax. For that to work, the XML tree is serialised in wiki syntax from the template. (template?template=source This might loose information and be vary of round trip problems.) So wiki syntax applies only on the UI.
