WebContentEdit is a console application able to manage and edit content on supported collaborative websites like wikis.
It supports the following websites:
You can run WebContentEdit without any parameter to get an interactive prompt, or specify a command to run it directly and exit just after.
In this page we will use the interactive mode:
$ webcontentedit Welcome to webcontentedit Copyright(C) 2010-2012 The Weboob Team This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, version 3 of the License. Type "help" to display available commands. Loaded backends: webcontentedit>
help command to see what are the available commands.
For more information about common options of console applications, read this documentation.
The first time you launch webcontentedit, it will ask you what backends you want to add and configure.
You can also use the
backends command to manage them, and to enable only specific backends.
Edit a content
webcontentedit> edit ID1 [ID2 ...]
For example, with Redmine:
webcontentedit> edit wiki/weboob/WebContentEdit wiki/weboob/Weboob wiki/weboob/Applications
Then, it opens the found contents in the editor defined in the environment variable
$EDITOR (for example vim). You can do all changes, then exit it.
It displays all changed pages, and prompts you for an optional commit message. Then, if you confirm, it pushes all changes:
Contents changed: * wiki/weboob/WebContentEdit * wiki/weboob/Applications Enter a commit message: add webcontentedit Do you want to push? (Y/n): y Pushing wiki/weboob/WebContentEdit... done Pushing wiki/weboob/Applications... done
