Once again here we are with “Wiki, what’s going on?” 🙂
Today is a great day because the question “Wiki, what’s going on?” has a precise answer: “TeXLa is alive!”
TeXLa is the parser created by Davide (@valsdav) to import .tex documents by converting them into wikitext. It has been a great effort, especially for him who was the core contributor, to make it properly work and completely usable without crashes while converting the document and during its importation. As I was saying, today is a great day because, using TeXLa, we have imported a complete course: the first step of a long journey for our importing working group. I’m extremely happy with this news also because I was the editor of the document we have imported, lol. Moreover, now that TeXLa is alive, our importation working group is getting ready to import many .tex documents in the next months!
As an editor I can consider myself satisfied also because I’m studying for an exam and I’m writing my notes on WikiToLearn and Davide, who’s studyin for the same exam, started working on the same course with me: it has been a great satisfaction to see a collaborative textbook being “collaborative”!
Once again I can tell you that we are working hard and we are looking forward to see the result of our daily efforts because, as you already know: “knowledge only grows if shared”.
