VoodooPadXmlRpcAddOn Discussions

oustanding development issues

the current implementation of vpwiki xml-rpc doesn't have the following:

  1. login/authentication
  2. xml-rpc error code returns (maybe exceptions, too?)
  3. support for updating anything other than 'text' (in setPage)
  4. locking isn't done very well
  5. limited to operating in the wiki web named "Sandbox" because that's hard-coded
  6. page integrity -- the plugin currently strips ^M's in setPage
  7. there is a newer api at http://flyingmeat.com/vpwiki_api.html

outstanding design issues

  1. how to support multiple wiki webs?

this is a work in progress

Caveat: Unix perspective

Stripping the ^Ms from the text might confuse the meta data subsystem. Look at the text of a topic using joe or any other favourite editor of yours that shows the ^M's up. What you will notice is that lines which are TWiki meta data have standard line endings, whereas topic lines all end with ^M's. This distinction only seems to be used when splitting the metadata from the topic text, which is why if you add a valid %META tag to the end of the page (eg to introduce a random nonstandard form) those META tags are visible in the edit screen (and a non-debug raw view), but the rest of the topic's meta tags are not visible.

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.
