Import Export Plugin

Import and export wiki data

This plugin is intended to help import and export data (webs, topics, attachments) from your foswiki, or from some other source into your foswiki.

Initially, it will import from an existing foswiki or twiki on the same filesystem, but I'm intending it to import using ssh, zip, or some custom mechanism.

The data should then be able to transformed (for eg, twiki based topic links re-written to the new foswiki names)

Import into this foswiki

(re-implement using a FOREACH over a IMPORTFROMHANDLER macro), and extract UI's so that others can add new handlers in their own contribs

Sorry, you can only import if you are in the AdminGroup (or sudo to it)

Check topics in this foswiki

This checker was initially written to find links to missing topics or attachments (and to list external url's in case they could cause issues.

In the process of rendering, It also lists all topics that cause a crash, so can help you debug issues caused by plugins.

It will also report what MACRO's were not expanded, thus alerting you to potentially missing plugins.

Sorry, you can only check content if you are in the AdminGroup (or sudo to it)

pre-development thinking

  1. a set of ImportExportPlugin::From classes that implement getListOfWebs, getListOfTopics, getListOfAttachments and getItem
  2. have a UI that allows the user to select the From class and add parameters to it
    • From::FS and From::SSH would require permissions (somehow), whereas From::Zip or From::Http might work differently
  3. given a From handler, the user can select a 'set' of items that are available (from a UI) and a destination, and hit 'go'
  4. a set of ImportExportPlugin::Transforms can be selected to be used while importing a set (none, twiki->foswiki, cvs->forms topics, funny encoding->utf8, change topic name)

Installation

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
