Semantic CSV is an extension for MediaWiki that enables users to import data from CSV files. Through several forms, the user gets the possibility to connect his data with properties and to design the layout of the generated pages. To get an impression please have a look at a short Tutorial.


You can download the extension here:


To install the extension, extract the archive to: '[wikipath]/extensions'

To finish the setup, open '[wikipath]/LocalSettings.php' and add the line:

require_once( "$IP/extensions/SemanticCSV/SemanticCSV.php" );

You should now see that the extension was successfully installed on the 'Special:Version' page of your wiki. To use the extension, go to the 'Special:SemanticCSV' page. For further information I can again recommend the Tutorial

Note: SemanticCSV will also run without the extension Semantic MediaWiki. But it is of course recommended to have it installed.

Version and Author[edit]

This is the very first version of SemanticCSV. Yet, I have only tested it on my own system (MediaWiki: 1.15.1, PHP: 5.3.0, MySQL 5.1.37). The code is mainly written by Jonas Bissinger, but some parts are from Yaron Koren's extension DataTransfer.
