Subject: [OGDev] Alternatives to Text::WikiFormat
We've had some issues with Text::WikiFormat in the last few months and
it doesn't seem to get updated very often. As I commented during last
weekend's meetup, I'd like to replace it. HTML::WikiConverter looks
like a good possibility:
It allows custom dialects to be implemented easily, so we wouldn't
have to worry much about our specific syntax (which is pretty much a
UseModWiki subset anyway).
Can we go for a generic approach. Like the wiki store being a pluggable back end, I see
the formatter as something similar.
As far as I am aware, OpenGuides and Wiki::Toolkit have been architected this way.
Maybe the formatter can be a config choice.
