Description Björn Michaelsen 2011-08-02 02:16:09 UTC

Are currently manually created because transclusion arguments do not seem to be expanded in the feed urls. Manually creating these pages is tiresome and errorprone. It would be great to have a Script to recreate these (and maybe more: by_Topic, by_Component) pages.

The script should be stored at:


in the end.
Comment 1 Björn Michaelsen 2011-11-09 10:27:09 UTC
We are using a homebrew RSS-feed extension based on simplepie modified from http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SimpleFeed

It would be cool instead of having to write a huge feed-URL like:
<feed url="https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&product=LibreOffice&query_format=advanced&status_whiteboard=EasyHack%20DifficultyBeginner%20SkillCpp&status_whiteboard_type=allwordssubstr&ctype=atom" entries="200"> [{ID} {TITLE} </feed>

to be modify the extension to trigger on something like:
<bugzilla-feed status_whiteboard="EasyHack DifficultyBeginner SkillCpp">[{ID} {TITLE}

'''Skills:''' PHP

@cloph: Is our current modified extension available in our repos?

the modified SimpleFeed extension

as mentioned in the mails, the modifications are minimal

keep class attributes, so you can use css to hide&style them, use the ID field of the feed to get the bug's URL, deal with wiki-link syntax to turn the bug -number into a link.

And yes, allowing for shorter trigger is of course possible, you can manually assemble the feed url in the php from keywords.

@cloph: Thanks for the update replacing "bug" with "Easy Hack". Can you upload that modified version to a repo at the canonical repository location of the website team, which is https://github.com/tdf I guess?

Deteted "Easyhack" from summary
Comment 8 Florian Reisinger 2012-05-18 09:59:14 UTC
Changed the Summary a little didfferent, so that my easyhack search is not affected...
Comment 9 Wagner Macedo 2013-08-05 01:09:53 UTC
Hello, I came to this bug because I'm new to LODev and it is marked as an EasyHack.

But as I could perceive, this bug is already resolved. Am I wrong?
