Verso Wiki is a Wiki to HTML and HTML to Wiki markup translator. We use this Wiki translator in the information management system anyMeta.
We license the Verso Wiki markup translator under the GPL version 2.
We made this Wiki translator because we needed an easy way to edit markup, without people learning HTML. On the other hand we also needed a fast translation of the Wiki to HTML.
We made it fast by storing all text in HTML and introduce a HTML to Wiki translator for editing the text. In this way we can serve the HTML directly from the database. Only a small part of the HTML is so dynamic that it is generated on runtime (ie. when displaying the page). Examples of dynamic parts are references to other pages and images.
Originally we used the excellent PEAR Text_Wiki package by Paul M. Jones. Because we had some databases with existing Wiki markup, we made our Wiki compatible with Paul's Wiki.
See wiki.ciaweb.net/yawiki/index.php?area=Text_Wiki for more information and markup rule documentation.
The archive verso_wiki-1.2.0.tar.gz contains the following files:
Translate Wiki markup to HTML, almost ready for display.
Translate HTML (generated by any_wiki_tohtml) back to Wiki.
Fill in dynamic parts of the by any_wiki_tohtml generated HTML.
This is done just prior to using the text in a web page.
Used for tokenizing the Wiki markup.
XML parser for the XHTML to Wiki translator
Some routines that are called by the any_wiki routines.
You will need to fill these in with your own database or model access methods.

Basically the same as this story :-)
