This concept arose from discussion about InterWiki (a usenet-like distributed network of Wiki servers).
- An InterWikiMap provides a simple "inter-wiki linking" system, currently (as of November 25, 2000) working in three very different wiki implementations on over 10 separate sites, and also on the AdvoGato (non-wiki) site. See http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?InterWiki and http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?InterMap for more information.
Well, let's try again. I'm pushing to make MeatballWiki
publish its InterWikiList?
(which can include trustable non-wiki entries too) so other wikis can suck it up. That would make MeatballWiki
the central nameserver for InterWiki
, more or less. Nothing fancy about it, really. Discussion to http://usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?InterWiki

Ok, Cliff made the simple first step: http://usemod.com/intermap.txt
Raph made the second (much bigger step) of implementing InterWiki
. Very cool! --ss
has supported InterWikiMap
for a while now.
The TWiki software has a working InterWiki
plugin (as of the 15 March 2001 beta, see http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/InterWiki
) - it's now enabled on http://twiki.org
. I have been playing with it, and it's interesting how much easier it is to surf across a number of different Wikis and not really worry too much about which one you are in at the moment. Even this simple form of InterWiki
definitely moves things closer to a WorldWideWikiWeb
planning on supporting InterWiki
on this wiki? It would be nice, since this is a branching off point for access to many other Wikis. -- RichardDonkin
NotOnThisWiki. WardsWiki has SisterSites instead.
Perhaps the features of InterWikiMap
should be maintained externally as part of the local application accessing InternetPages?
, particularly since users tend to have preferences in what they would like to see in these two features.
Has anyone heard of a BrowserAddIn?
which deals with either of these?
