Ever since MediaWiki migrated their source control management from Subversion to Git, the tool to download nightly snapshots has been froozen.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to learn more about Git’s command-line tools, so I took this opportunity to work on a new tool where I could do just that.
The new mwSnapshots tool is monitoring all branches of the
mediawiki/core.git repository. Once an hour it will fetch all the new commits added to the repository and sync the
HEAD positions of all branches. Then, for branches that have changed since the previous run, it will: check them out, create a new
tar archive compressed by gzip, and clean up the old one.
As part of the spring cleaning this year I want to get all my Toolserver tools into public and easy to use version control. Right now most tools are either on Toolserver’s internal SVN somewhere, or not in source control at all.
Each tool will be getting its own Git repository. I will be (one-way) mirroring all of those repositories under github.com/Krinkle.
Last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new project, based on an ad-hoc i18n solution I had in some of my tools.
Toolserver Intuition is new tool (a “meta-tool” if you will) that end users won’t interact much directly, but it is used inside other tools. Both my own tools and tools by other developers.
The translations themselves and the framework around it is open-sourced in Wikimedia SVN: https://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/mediawiki/trunk/tools/ToolserverI18N/.
More technical details and a short guide on how to implement it (if you’re a Toolserver developer as well) can be found on the Toolserver wiki.
Update 2013-10-18: Code moved to GitHub: https://github.com/Krinkle/intuition.
