I was looking at the HandheldsWiki ( http://www.handhelds.org/z/wiki ) - apparently the hackers that be have ported Linux to the Ipaq (this kicks off the PocketPC Operating System).

This takes two forms: TWikiOnWindowsCE and TWikiOnLinuxPDA

Among the packages they have ported is Perl. Hence, my idea: TWiki in your pocket.

Assuming Perl and the webserver works, the main challenge is that it makes implementing DistributedTWiki and ReadWriteOfflineWiki mandatory. This is because Handhelds are at best transitory in their network connectivity.

Another interesting platform is the new Sharp Linux PDA, since this is Linux out of the box. I've been toying with doing this, but haven't got such a PDA at present. I do have ReadOnlyOfflineWiki on my Palm PDA, but that's not quite as useful.

Are you using the AvantGo method?

-- MartinCleaver - 13 Apr 2002

I'm using Plucker, which is an OpenSource tool that's similar to AvantGo - see ViewTWikiOnPDA for some info and links. I actually sync first with wget, then sync Plucker from the HTML files produced by wget on my laptop. However, I've decided the best approach is to write some server side code that incrementally exports pages to flat HTML files on the server, taking care not to re-generate HTML for pages that have not changed since the last export. This would make it possible to incrementally sync using Plucker or wget, since they use the LastModifiedFieldOfHttpHeader.

Cool, thanks for that smile

Rest of this topic moved to TWikiOnWindowsCE

Admin: could someone please move the attachments on this page to TWikiOnWindowsCE?

-- MartinCleaver - 02 May 2002

I tried renaming one but got an attachment move error, which I'm now investigating - error message was not very informative.
