Make an app for "Zim Wiki"


#1

I use Nextcloud to sync my Notes made with “Zim Wiki” (http://zim-wiki.org/) between multiple computers (works great!).
It would be cool to have a WYSIWYG-Editor (including images) as a Nextcloud App for Zim Wiki.


Wiki App software?
#2

i created an issue at https://github.com/jaap-karssenberg/zim-desktop-wiki/issues/185 to get in touch for cooperation if desired


#3

perhaps you might look at qownnotes, which is still in active development, zim seems to be end of life.
Additional to that, qownnotes has a nc-plugin for serverside administering the notes (sync has to be done with the nc-client)


#4

If you want a wiki, you could try this app and tell us how well it works with Nextcloud:


#5

I already tried qownnotes months ago but felt more comfortable with zim wiki. Maybe i’ll give it another try someday


#6

Yes its true, zim is easier to use and less cluttered, but as it’s more or less dead, you should evaluate alternatives before its too late.


#7

I downloaded the zip, moved it to my apps folder, renamed it to ‘wiki’, and then tried to enable it. I got this error:

Could not download app picocmsapp

Is this a “you should edit a file to move OC apps to NC” or is it a “OC apps don’t work on NC any more” kind of situation?


#8

Well, I found this improved version that should work with Nextcloud here:


#9

Thanks for the link @alfred but it didn’t work. I may have installed it wrong so I’m not sure. I followed his install instructions as best as I could decipher. I’ve created an issue so hopefully I’ll get more detail on how to fix/install it right. https://github.com/deic-dk/files_picocms/issues/3

Also, how did you find that app since it wasn’t in the app store, for future reference? Did you just do a Google search for “Pico CMS Nextcloud” or something more sophisticated?


#10

The foldername shouldn’t be files_picocms ?


#11

The app folder name is called “files_picocms” but the content is stored in a folder called “PicoCMS” in my user’s files share.


#12

The content shouldn’t be in another folder. If you open the files_picocms folder, you should see all files/folders you have in the app (like on https://github.com/deic-dk/files_picocms).


#13

So the content files aren’t accessible via the Files app then? Have you done this and got it working? This line of the install instructions is why I have a copy in my synced Files section:

Copy the folder samplesite to the folder of some user (it will be shared with users)

I should note, I did leave the folder ‘samplesite’ in the folder under apps/files_picocms and placed a copy of it in my synced files, but it still didn’t render anything when I tried it.


#14

When I understand the manual correctly, you create a folder samplesite in the main folder of one Nextcloud user (not in the app-folder). In the app configuration, you have to set the id of this user (username).

I haven’t used the wiki so far. I could test it at some point, not sure when I’ll find some time…


#15

Your statement appears to a lazy lie.

41 contributors.
2017 - a very active year


#16

don’t call random people liars, if you don’t know what are you talking about.
I don’t dig very hole if someone works on a software, the versions which are distributed to install are still from 2015!
Additional to that even in that release list of that link above there is a huge gap between '15 and '17


#17

Another option could be this:
https://mikescher.github.io/AlephNote/


#18

This looks more like a notes app. It is compatible with the Nextcloud Notes app as said here tough:


#19

I saw you were talking about deic’s files_picocms. Please have a look to this work in progress:


#20

Ah, so this is being promoted to an official app? Pretty cool :slight_smile:

But why no documentation on the github page?
