Getting intermediate struct for Wikitext

Jan 24, 2012 at 6:18 PM

Hi,

Is there anything in the Wikiplex project that will give me an intermediate structure for Wikitext which I can then use to generate other content?

Specifically, I want to generate RichText XAML content from wikimedia wikitext and would love to not have to go thru HTML for that.

Not really, as all renderers are outputting HTML. Ultimately, you'd have to replace all of the renderers to render XAML instead. I did this with another OSS project, WikiMaml, which takes wiki text and outputs it as MAML content to be injested by Sandcastle. I could see you following the same for your project.

Thanks for the pointer. Though it looks like it has dependencies on the wikitext project right? (I can't use those since I am compiling for Silverlight/wp).

You're correct, right now there isn't support for SL/WP. I can look into it, though, and see if a version can be compiled for those frameworks.

I meant silverlight flavor of WP. Not SL itself.

And thanks - that would be interesting.
