Socialtext::WikiObject(3) Represent wiki markup as a data structure and object


use Socialtext::WikiObject;
my $page = Socialtext::WikiObject->new(
rester => $Socialtext_Rester,
page => $wiki_page_name,


Socialtext::WikiObject is a package that attempts to fetch and parse some wiki text into a perl data structure. This makes it easier for tools to access information stored on the wiki.

The goal of Socialtext::WikiObject is to create a structure that is 'good enough' for most cases.

The wiki data is parsed into a data structure intended for easy access to the data. Headings, lists and text are supported. Simple tables without multi-line rows are parsed.

Subclass Socialtext::WikiObject to create a custom module for your data. You can provide accessors into the parsed wiki data.

Subclasses can simply provide accessors into the data they wish to expose.


new( %opts )

Create a new wiki object. Options:
Users must provide a Socialtext::Resting object setup to use the desired workspace and server.
If the page is given, it will be loaded immediately.

load_page( $page_name )

Load the specified page. Will fetch the wiki page and parse it into a perl data structure.

parse_wikitext( $wikitext )

Parse the wikitext into a data structure.
