Details

Create an extensible framework to import data from other wiki platforms. This should handle basic features:

  • converting basic formatting syntax
  • links between pages
  • document metadata
  • attachments
  • history

and, where applicable, more complex features, such as:

  • access rights
  • custom structured data
  • macros

The implementation should continue the work previously done during the 2009 GSoC. The basic flow is:

  • an export of the source wiki (obtained using the export feature of the source wiki) is parsed into a specific implementation of the importer data model
  • this model is converted into XWiki documents, according to the XWiki data model, taking care of proper syntax conversion
  • these documents are saved in the current wiki

The system should work at least for MediaWiki, Confluence and TWiki
