Access MediaWiki maintenance scripts without a terminal shell using the MaintenanceShell extension

Some of the most powerful utility scripts which are included with Mediawiki can only be run via the command line, usually through a terminal shell. Unfortunately, many ISPs don’t allow terminal shell access, making life hard on MediaWiki admins.

I’ve written an extension for MediaWiki which tricks these maintenance scripts into thinking they are being run via the command line. A form on a special page provides access from the wiki.

CustomSidebar extension for MediaWiki 1.14.0

I had the need for custom sidebars definable on a per-page basis in MediaWiki, and I didn’t like the current options out there. Luckily MediaWiki 1.14.0 adds a new hook right after the sidebar is generated, making it easy to replace its contents. You can either pull contents from another page or define the menu items on the page itself.

Winter 2.2.0 - Interpreted language for MediaWiki

It’s been quite a while since I’ve updated Winter, but recently I discovered how to access content from other pages so perhaps we’ll see some new features. For now, I’ve added #include and #include_raw. #include will include the text from another page and run it through the Winter engine. #include_raw is not run through the Winter engine before being dumped into the page. Wikitext markup is not interpreted during this stage.. if you need the content to be formatted, you should use the #include command within a <winterprewiki> block. I also fixed a few bugs.
