Currently I'm building the housing for a repository of WordPress code. It will be an open source project where the foundation will be housed on GitHub and participation on building the "curated library of code" will happen there as well.
Now, as this is something that is close to what a wiki does:
- giving contributors tools to collaborate on content creation with the lowest entry barrier possible.
- giving researchers tools to quickly examine data they need.
I already know (pretty much) what tools I need to give contributors, but I'm really stuck with researchers. I looked at how existing Wiki-Systems do it. Aside from linked words, there's not much. But as I'm building a repository that contains code, it's not too useful. So here are some ideas:
- A list of Categories > Subcategories > Titles
- Full text search
- A tag cloud that would be filterable by a search box
I don't want to offer a lot of fancy stuff. As a starting point there should just be a convenient way to search for code "related to task X".
