Development Discussions for GetAWebAddOn


  • For offline reading it would be better to fully render all the pages to html before zipping.
    • The GenHTMLAddon has all the support you need for static rendering of a web. In fact, it's so obvious I wonder why none of us thought to put these two together before! -- CrawfordCurrie - 28 Jun 2002
    • now, there's also PublishAddOn, which came from GenHTMLAddon, though both have some bugs to be worked out -- WillNorris - 11 Oct 2004

This is a useful extension. I will wait with placing it into the TWiki distribution until we have Admin acccess restrictions.

How about using CPAN:Archive and CPAN:Compress modules rather than system calls?

-- NicholasLee - 17 Sep 2000

version 0.95 uses CPAN:Archive::Tar instead of calling tar directly. note, at this point, only .tar is now supported.

I did some doc work on the Add-on topic.

-- PeterThoeny - 12 Oct 2004

I added a SHORTDESCRIPTION to the "Add-On Info" section so that this add-on is represented properly in the AddOnPackage topic and query topics. Please feel free to take this into the next release.

We installed this Add-On yesterday in order to generate backups of our wiki. We recognized that the date of the zipped files is wrong (1/1/1601 00:01). Do you know how that error could happen? Is it a already known bug? What can we do to get the right date if it is not a bug?

-- KirstinWeber - 27 Jul 2007

on my quick test the tar ball's dates are correct - I've updated the addon to work on twiki 4.2, but I think I've also made a replacement GetAWebPlugin, that respects TWiki VIEW permission settings.
