Workshops[edit]

We held the following workshops during the Amsterdam Hackathon.

Set up your development environment for MediaWiki[edit]

Presenters: Sumana Harihareswara, Mark Holmquist

We explained how to get set up so each participant can work on code and suggest her or his improvements to the MediaWiki maintainers -- including using Git, Gerrit and coverage for Mac, Linux, and Windows. All instructions provided were in Gerrit/Getting started (that page and its links are the slides).

NOTE: This workshop previously included a tutorial on getting a Vagrant instance set up. Our feeble conference wifi couldn't handle 25 simultaneous attempts to download a 300 megabyte file, and most of the workarounds we tried were insufficient, so we've decided to be more thorough about getting Git set up. If you want to set up Vagrant and are having issues following the instructions on mediawiki.org, you should contact User:MarkTraceur.

Thanks to Max Semenik, Jens Ohlig, Sam Reed, and Brad Jorsch for assisting participants.

  • Question: How can you set up the Eclipse plugin for review? Answer.

Lua in MediaWiki with Scribunto[edit]

Slides of the Lua presentation

Presenter: Brad Jorsch

This session featured a short introduction (with hands-on code examples) to MediaWiki's Scribunto extension—why we created it and how it works—followed by discussion on actually converting those pesky expensive templates to use Lua, and make your wiki faster.

How to get your code deployed on Wikimedia[edit]

Slides from the Security portion of the talk

Presenters: Chris Steipp, Tim Starling

  • Chris Steipp shows you how to prevent falling into often-seen security holes and improve your skill level (slides).

Wikibots (pywikipedia and others)[edit]

Slides of the presentation

Presenters: Merlijn van Deen, Maarten Dammers

The Python Wikipediabot Framework is a collection of tools that automate work on MediaWiki sites. How can you use pywikipedia to write a simple bot? And how can you help improve pywikipedia and its documentation to help make bots better?

The goal of this workshop was to get you started, by installing and configuring pywikibot and its prerequisites. After explaining the basic principles, the presenters showed three example bots: two Wikidata bots and one GLAM bot. After this, the presenters answered questions on running and writing bots.
