== Welcome to BluWiki ==
  
HTML::WikiConverter is a Perl module for converting HTML to wiki markup for a variety of different wiki engines. Currently, it at least partially supports ''twelve'' dialects:

I'd ''really'' like to add support for TWiki, but the way it handles '''''bold italics''''' (and possibly other nested elements) is very disappointing.

Some wikis have general discussion areas, such as ''Village Pump'' or ''Coffee Shop.'' '''We have the [[BluWiki:Blu Plate Diner|Blu Plate Diner]].''' Come in, sit down, and order anything you want. ''You may not get it'' -- but you ''might'', and in any case, you can talk about it.  
  
==Installation==
 
  
It's very easy to use HTML::WikiConverter. Grab a copy from your favorite [http://www.cpan.org CPAN mirror] and then run something like this:
 
  
  #!/usr/bin/perl -w
+
Enjoy your stay in BluWiki, and '''Be Blu.'''
  use HTML::WikiConverter;
+
  my $wc = new HTML::WikiConverter( dialect => 'MediaWiki' );
+
  print $wc->html2wiki();
+

Alternatively, you might want to try HTML::WikiConverter's command line interface; it's a program called <code>html2wiki</code> and it's stored in ''bin/html2wiki''.

Unfortunately, I haven't managed to implement every feature of each supported dialect. My initial goal was simply to create a converter for MediaWiki (I am a Wikipediholic, after all :-), but then PhpWiki's Reini Urban suggested that I be more ambitious and provide the dialect interface. And so far I've been really happy with the progress.

Of course there are always bugs. Luckily, CPAN comes to the rescue again with its [http://rt.cpan.org bug tracking service] for module authors.

But where would we be without bugs? My Pacman frog sure wouldn't be happy without 'em! Do you know what a [[Pacman frog]] is? Or how about an Otago skink? Aplysia californica? Why, these are some of my favorite animals!

Wikis also support lists, even extensively nested ones. Some rely on leading characters to determine nest levels, while others rely on spaces or (egad!) tabs.

Some wikis support definition lists, though they're often used inappropriately (as in MediaWiki, which uses them for indentation).

Welcome to BluWiki

This is the BluWiki Community Portal, the gateway to community-oriented features of this wiki web. BluWiki is pretty much a "do your own thing" wiki, but to the extent that we share the space, we do belong to a social group.

Sam Odio is our Chef. Some users have special privileges that let us perform unusual maintenance tasks. If you need help, please feel free to ask any one of us. You can always find a list of sysops at Special:Listadmins.

Some wikis have general discussion areas, such as Village Pump or Coffee Shop. We have the Blu Plate Diner. Come in, sit down, and order anything you want. You may not get it -- but you might, and in any case, you can talk about it.


Enjoy your stay in BluWiki, and Be Blu.
