WikiCreole page renderer

Notice: This plugin is deprecated. Trac >= 0.12 has an integrated WikiCreole renderer.


A plugin for rendering WikiCreole source as HTML - see the wikicreole project.

Specifically it extends the IHTMLPreviewRenderer component of the mimeviewer to pass the wiki creole page through Creoleparser which generates an HTML version of the page.

The wiki text should have mime type text/x-wiki.creole. I've only tested this by adding a source file to the repository with that mime type. The sample wiki text for the creole format is included below, and will be rendered as intended:

= Top-level heading (1)
== This a test for creole 0.1 (2)
=== This is a Subheading (3)
==== Subsub (4)
===== Subsubsub (5)

The ending equal signs should not be displayed:

= Top-level heading (1) =
== This a test for creole 0.1 (2) ==
=== This is a Subheading (3) ===
==== Subsub (4) ====
===== Subsubsub (5) =====

You can make things **bold** or //italic// or **//both//** or //**both**//.

Character formatting extends across line breaks: **bold,
this is still bold. This line deliberately does not end in star-star.

Not bold. Character formatting does not cross paragraph boundaries.

You can use [[internal links]] or [[|external links]],
give the link a [[internal links|different]] name.

Here's another sentence: This wisdom is taken from [[Ward Cunningham's]]
[[|Presentation at the Wikisym 06]].

Here's a external link without a description: [[]]

Be careful that italic links are rendered properly:  //[[|My Book Title]]// 

Free links without braces should be rendered as well, like and 

Creole1.0 specifies that http://bar and ftp://bar should not render italic,
something like foo://bar should render as italic.

You can use this to draw a line to separate the page:

You can use lists, start it at the first column for now, please...

unnumbered lists are like
* item a
* item b
* **bold item c**

blank space is also permitted before lists like:
  *   item a
 * item b
* item c
 ** item c.a

or you can number them
# [[item 1]]
# item 2
# // italic item 3 //
    ## item 3.1
  ## item 3.2

up to five levels
* 1
** 2
*** 3
**** 4
***** 5

* You can have
multiline list items
* this is a second multiline
list item

You can use nowiki syntax if you would like do stuff like this:

Guitar Chord C:


You can also use it inline nowiki {{{ in a sentence }}} like this.

= Escapes =
Normal Link: - now same link, but escaped: ~ 

Normal asterisks: ~**not bold~**

a tilde alone: ~

a tilde escapes itself: ~~xxx

=== Creole 0.2 ===

This should be a flower with the ALT text "this is a flower" if your wiki supports ALT text on images:

{{Red-Flower.jpg|here is a red flower}}

=== Creole 0.4 ===

Tables are done like this:

|=header col1|=header col2| 
|you         |can         | 
|also        |align\\ it. | 

You can format an address by simply forcing linebreaks:

My contact dates:\\
Pone: xyz\\
Fax: +45\\
Mobile: abc

=== Creole 0.5 ===

|= Header title               |= Another header title     |
| {{{ //not italic text// }}} | {{{ **not bold text** }}} |
| //italic text//             | **  bold text **          |

=== Creole 1.0 ===

If interwiki links are setup in your wiki, this links to the WikiCreole page about Creole 1.0 test cases: [[WikiCreole:Creole1.0TestCases]].
