Description

Hello,

Tiki is fantastic piece of software providing (almost) everything one can think of CMS and I would not have difficult time to switch to it all of my web sites...except, there is one, imho, quite important thing which I do miss a lot - it's TIki's import-export capabilities.

For instance, at the moment I?m responsible for one non-profit organization's web site and Tiki would be perfect match for it, but currently there are ~250 posts available and there is no option to import it into Tiki. cry

These days static-site-generators (e.g. Hugo) and/or flat-file CMS.-es (e.g.Grav) are becoming popular by eliminating need for database usage, but, provide some kind of support to migrate from popular blog engines like WordPress. Moreover, since the content is no longer stored within database, but it is written down in some standard markup (markdown, asciidoc, rst,...) and stored in regular filesystem, it is very easy to change one's platform.

Otoh, there is, afaik, nothing like that available for Tiki so in order to move to it, one practically has to start from the scratch and there is also no way out. eek

Recently, someone added support for Tiki markup to the Pandoc due to the need to migrate one's content from the Tiki, so we can say there is kind of 'way out' for those wanting to change from Tiki to something else, at least, for blog posts, articles etc.

However, there is none support to convert to Tiki, although there is an open issue in regard.

So, my proposal it to take this issue more seriously (there is similar issue to make Tiki more friendly citizen for those wanting to move to/away from it.

Lastly, I'm also thinking that by having good support for Pandoc, I'd certainly take advantage to write some longer articles/posts using my preferred editor which provides helpers for the markup (e.g. rst), syntax highlighting etc., all while being offline and then just convert to Tiki Wiki markup.

It's a pity that Tiki does provide so many things, inherently missing in static-site-generators which have to be plugged via some 3rd party apps/services out, out of the box, but it lacks in import-export features.

There was also wikiLingo initiative, but it seems that it is stalled and/or Robert is no longer around?
