RIP August 24, 2010 - April 26, 2013

Due to lack of interest and the increasing burden of maintenance, I have decided to close down this wiki. Most of the information that it contains is either outdated or repeated elsewhere.

There was quite a bit of discussion on this question in regards to the so-called dev-tip questions / posts here. Being the type of person who wants to step in and help in times of confusion (confusion being the lack of proper facilities for handling these questions), I decided to create something myself.

So here goes...

I downloaded, installed, and configured MediaWiki on my server. The idea is you can post ANY valuable API related tips / advice there.

Here's the link:


Note: Please don't forget to sign up before posting... it helps me know how the site is being used / its popularity / etc.

Ah, good ol' Media Wiki – Mark Henderson Aug 24 '10 at 3:44
@Farseeker: But did you like it? Is it something you would find useful? – Nathan Osman Aug 24 '10 at 4:17
@george, yeah I think I would. I've already gone an added a page to it about gzipped data, because I wasn't very good at reading instructions so I raged against the machine for a good few hours finding that out. – Mark Henderson Aug 24 '10 at 4:38
@Farseeker: So that was you :) Thanks - it was much appreciated. Feel free to add tutorials or create a custom page for your app or whatever you feel like! – Nathan Osman Aug 24 '10 at 4:40
What is content licensed under? – Gelatin Aug 24 '10 at 17:04
@Simon: Same as StackExchange - cc-wiki. – Nathan Osman Aug 24 '10 at 22:18
No Open-ID integration? I enjoy it so much with SE sites :-) – Alexandre Rafalovitch Aug 25 '10 at 21:28
@Alexandre: Good idea! I'll add that very soon. Very soon. – Nathan Osman Aug 30 '10 at 17:08
@Alexandre: All done. – Nathan Osman Aug 30 '10 at 17:35
If you add the Dynamic page List extension, the static list of dev tips can be made, well dynamic. Also why not create some script to convert the dev-tip questions into wiki articles using the API :) – Jonathan. Aug 30 '10 at 20:04
@Jonathan: Hmmm... I'll look into that. Nice idea. – Nathan Osman Aug 30 '10 at 21:22
