Description

I have started a blog using Tiki, where I talk about what I have learned over the years on Agile Software developement in a Research and Development context.

In the three weeks I have been doing this, I find myself pointing to Wikipedia pages over and over, whenever I need to refer to a specialized concept that my readers might not understand. The way I do it now is like this. Say I want to refer to the concept of Code Refactoring. Then I will write ((code refactoring)). Then I will create a wiki page code refactoring, and put a redirect plugin on it, so that it forwards automatically to this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/code_refactoring

Then, whenever I need to refer to code refactoring, I can just write code refactoring.

It occurred to me that it might be useful to have a special wiki link syntax to make this easier. For example, I could write code refactoring, and this would be rendered as if I had typed: [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/code_refactoring|code refactoring].

I can see other application of this concept for other well known sites that provide information about known entities. For example: would point to this page:

http://en-gb.facebook.com/marc.laporte.name

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
