Re: MediaWiki + refbase

Posted by: karnesky on May 28, 2008 03:53 PM
You're correct that we still have work to do on this integration. You might also want to check out PIRA to see how refbase could be integrated with a WYSIWYG editor. It seems to have been for a class project or something, but they did a good job--it lets you write your paper & will perform contextual literature searches based on what you have written. MediaWiki and others are probably much better for real authoring work, but it give you an idea of what kind of integration is possible:

I don't think word processors and LaTeX tools are going anywhere, though. wikindx, refbase, and many of the reference managers listed at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_reference_management_software
http://bibliophile.sourceforge.net/projects.php

work with these more conventional tools.
