This wiki is the homeplace of three powerful MediaWiki extensions developed and maintained by Gero Scholz.
Currently we run MediaWiki 1.13 with page caching enabled.

A universal report generator for MediaWikis
A light-weight approach to semantic wiki
A graph generator based on aiSee

Dynamic Page List (DPL)

Dynamic Page List   --   2.0


DPL is a report generator for MediaWikis.
It creates lists of articles that match certain criteria. Meta data like author, popularity or date of last update can be added. Contents from articles can be included in the result, based on chapters, templates or special markers in the text.

Country Area Population Text #hits
Cameroon 475,442 16,323,000

Combining the power of DPL and Ploticus we can easily generate a pie chart showing (for example) page hit frequencies. To see that it works live, note the hit count of a country, then click on that country in the above table and come back to the main page. The hit count has changed and the pie has become a little bigger ;-) Ploticus Demo

You want to know which articles were edited by whom recently? DPL can produce a quick overview: {{#ploticus:

Wgraph is a graph generator for MediaWikis.
It allows you to define the semantics of a graph in an abstract textual notation called WGL (Wiki Graph Language). You may add hints for layout, but the graph itself is being produced automatically. Wgraph is a powerful visualisation instrument for objects and their relations.

 edge wgl wgraph  { kind rightnear color red }

  • All extensions are under GPL license. Test them here live! There is extensive documentation, see the online manuals. You can download the sources.
  • In addition there are some minor extensions like Call and improved versions of existing extensions named Inputbox and StripMarkup which may be useful. See the navigation bar. We also host the StackFunctions extension.
  • There are plenty of examples, which can serve as a starting point for your own ideas. There is a small calendar application (built with DPL) which you can use and enhance.
  • There is a place where you can report bugs and request new features. If you use the extensions, please leave a reference to your wiki!
