Wanna help out on wiki.php.net?
Jan 19, 2010 @ 09:21:03

Want to help out on the PHP project but not sure where to start? Lukas Smith suggests helping out with the wiki (at wiki.php.net).

I feel that I can make more of a difference in these other [personal] projects. [...] I hope others will pick up the slack and make sure that PDO gets love, at people diligently follow up on todo items mentioned on internals and that someone else picks up wiki.php.net and takes care of some regular maintenance stuff.

He mentions one thing specifically - an update that will need to happen to the Dokuwiki software the wiki runs on. If you're interested, send Lukas an email/leave a comment and he'll point you in the right direction.

Old and New DokuWiki Plugins
Jan 30, 2009 @ 12:02:07

In a new post to the splitbrain.org blog, Andreas Gohr takes a look at some of the older (but still useful!) and newer plugins for the DokuWiki application.

During the last few weeks I wrote a few new DokuWiki plugins and updated some old ones. This post is to give you a short introduction about each and what is new in the updated ones.

The plugins that made the list are:

Working with Password Hashes in PHP
Jul 29, 2008 @ 12:57:43

Andreas Gohr has a general overview of hashing in a new post to his blog:

Every good programmer knows, that passwords should never be stored in clear text. Instead a one way hash (or digest) should be used. This way user passwords are not at risk in case of an intrusion.

He points out the multiple ways that PHP offers for both simple hashing (like md5 or sha1) and the true encryption types (like ssha, apr1 and crypt). He shows how they work in the DokuWiki application via a call to auth_cryptPassword to make it and db_get_hash/auth_verifyPassword to check against it.

Compiling a Portable Apache for Linux
Apr 01, 2008 @ 11:32:57

Andreas Gohr has posted a guide for creating a mobile Apache installation that could run on something like a USB stick.

Today I spent some time to figure out how to compile a relocatable Apache with PHP support. Yes, this might result in a Linux version of the DokuWiki on a Stick project. Read on for detailed instructions.

The installation is pretty similar to the normal compile with a few small differences. Check out the post for the complete process, commands and all.

OpenID for DokuWiki
Jan 10, 2007 @ 09:31:00

A new plugin for DokuWiki has been released from Splitbrain.org - an OpenID plugin for authentication.

Inspired by the recent buzz around OpenID I did some research to see what it's all about and what would be necessary to add OpenID logins to DokuWiki.

He talks about why he'd even want to integrate the login type into his application and, with the plugin in place, what steps it takes to authenticate the user.

Setting Up DokuWiki with Simple Authentication
Dec 19, 2006 @ 09:02:00

Norbet Mocsnik, having just set it up himself, is sharing the steps needed to get DokuWiki set up and working with a simple authentication system.

I promised to investigate the steps needed to set up DokuWiki with the simplest authentication scheme for a friend and I thought others might benefit from it too, so here it is.

There's about fifteen steps in all, including the download/install of the package and creating the basic functionality (like a simple Auth schema - he gives an example). Create the superuser and set up the desired restrictions and you're home free. If you want more information on authentication in DokuWiki, check out this page on the DokuWiki's wiki.

SplitBrain.org:
Presentations in DokuWiki
Dec 05, 2006 @ 07:56:00

On SplitBrain.org, there's a mention of a new feature that's been added to the popular DokuWiki package - "pluggable renderers".

In case you don't know: DokuWiki parses Wiki syntax into an instruction array which then is "rendered" to the desired output format. This output format is usually the XHTML to display a nicely formatted Wiki page.

Pluggable renderers allow plugin authors to write their own renderer to output any format they want. This adds another bit of flexibility to DokuWiki.

The idea for these renderers was inspired by the S5 system (developed by Eric Meyer) that was essentially a web-based slide show (without the need for a messy client-side application). Unfortunately, the slide shows were hard to make - which is where the renderers come in. In fact, he's already created the tool to get you started - the S5 DokuWiki Plugin. Check out his example to see the results.
