New plugin: Wiki Tools 0.9 Beta

Wiki Tools allows you to preview and test a raw wiki text used in various editable websites, such as Wikipedia.

How it works?

  1. Click menu -> Tools -> Add or Remove Plugins -> Get More Plugins... and install Wiki Tools plugin. Restart Makagiga.
  2. Create a new "Notepad" item
  3. Type some wiki text
  4. Press F4 and select Wiki from the Preview list
  5. Type more text and the preview will update automagically! :)

The plugin uses Java Wikipedia API (Bliki engine) for parsing and converting Wiki syntax to HTML.

Which the "Title base URL" should I set for local links? For example, link to "Files&Catalogues/Wiki/WikiPage" within Makagiga?

Right-click the blue button with document name (near the menu bar) and select "Copy link address". Note that this is a simple preview and all links will open in external app.

Thank you for the great job! Will it be difficult to you to make this feature — to open the target wiki pages clicked on preview window twice: on the left side in preview mode, and on the right tab in source mode? If you will do it, we get the complete wiki system within Makagiga!

OK, I added basic wiki-like system support.
If you set "Title base URL" to "${title}" then
Makagiga will automatically find and open any page that matches that title name.
It's quite universal and should work with HTML and Markdown preview, too.

It will be available in v4.9.

Thanks :)
