Introducing the Winter scripting language for WikiMedia

Recently I started playing around with MediaWiki, the software that powers Wikipedia and other similar wikis. The software has a useful template system, but as a programmer, I wasn’t satisified with the lack of basic useful features like conditional statements and looping.

I discovered MediaWiki is pretty easy to create extensions for, and so I set out to create useful scripting language that was easy to understand and matched the syntax of other WikiMedia commands. What I ended up with was a full fledged scripting language, with if statements, for and while loops, and even function declarations.

For more information, please see the Winter documentation over on MetaWiki.
