NAME

       editmoin - Edit MoinMoin wiki pages in your favourite editor

SYNOPSIS

       editmoin http://moinmo.in/WikiSandBox

       editmoin -t SomeTemplate http://moinmo.in/WikiSandBox

DESCRIPTION

       editmoin  allows  you to edit Moin wiki pages with your preferred editor. It means you can
       easily edit your pages, without the usual limitations of most web browsers' text areas.

       Its usage is simple and straightforward. Just provide moin's web page  url  as  the  first
       parameter. For example:

              editmoin http://moinmo.in/WikiSandBox

       You can also use the -t parameter, to inform a template to base this page on. For example:

              editmoin -t SomeTemplate http://moinmo.in/WikiSandBox

CHANGE SETTINGS

       While  you're editing a page you'll notice that a few settings are available at the top of
       the page. These settings are preceded by a @ symbol, and are immediately followed  by  the
       page  body. These settings allow you to inform, for example, if you want subscribing users
       to be notified of your changes, or provide a comment for your change. Their  functionality
       is simple, and their meaning, format, and usage should be obvious to you.

SELECTING YOUR EDITOR

       The  default  editor  is vi. If you want to use any other, just set the EDITOR environment
       variable accordingly.

SETTING YOUR USERNAME

       For editmoin to be able to authenticate you against the moin  site  you're  accessing,  it
       must know your username.  For that, you must edit the file ~/.moin_users and insert URL ID
       pairs in it. For example:

              http://moinmo.in YourUserName

              http://wiki.ubuntu.com

              http://example.com/moin/moin.cgi AnotherUserName

       If the server needs Basic HTTP Authentication you can use something like:

              https://user:password@example.com/moin/moin.cgi YourUserName

       For using shortcuts (see below), and  also  for  better  control,  defining  URLs  without
       usernames in that file is valid.

SETTING YOUR MOIN ID EXPLICITLY

       In  remote  times,  authentication  was  done  in  moin  using an ID, consisting mostly of
       numbers.  Nowadays moin was improved to work with  a  more  traditional  username/password
       scheme.   Even  then,  if the traditional username scheme mentioned above doesn't work for
       you, IDs may still be obtained after authentication, when the moin site sends your browser
       a MOIN_ID or MOIN_SESSION cookie.

       Setting  moin IDs consists of changing a file named ~/.moin_ids and inserting URL ID pairs
       in it. For example:

              http://moinmo.in 987654321.321.54321

              http://wiki.canonical.com

              http://example.com/moin/moin.cgi 123456789.123.12345

       If the server needs Basic HTTP Authentication you can use something like:

              https://user:password@example.com/moin/moin.cgi 123456789.123.12345

       You can use a command like this to create a ~/.moin_ids file  from  your  current  Firefox
       profile:

       sqlite3 -separator ' ' .mozilla/*/*.default/cookies.sqlite \
         "SELECT host,value FROM moz_cookies WHERE name LIKE 'MOIN_SESSION'" \
         | sed 's_^_https://_' > ~/.moin_ids

       For using shortcuts (see below), and also for better control, defining URLs without IDs in
       that file is valid.

ALIASES

       Besides using shortcuts, it's also  possible  to  define  URL  aliases  in  a  file  named
       ~/.moin_aliases.   This  file  should contain lines with pairs of "alias translation". For
       instance:

              script http://moinmo.in/ScriptMarket

       With this line present, one may execute a command like follows:

              editmoin script/EditMoin

       and get the expected result.

       Notice that unlike shortcuts, aliases must match exactly  to  be  considered.   After  the
       alias  is  translated,  the  resulting  URL  is  also  processed for matching shortcuts as
       specified below.

SHORTCUTS

       Instead of using the whole URL, you may use a shortcut, which consists of any substring of
       an  URL contained in ~/.moin_users and/or ~/.moin_ids, followed by a slash and an optional
       subpath. For instance:

              editmoin canonical/FrontPage

PROXIES

       If you're behind a proxy, set the http_proxy environment variable, as usual.

BACKUPS

       Editing a moin page may take several minutes, or even hours sometimes.  With this in mind,
       after you change some page it is saved in a file named ~/.moin_lastedit even before trying
       to commit it. This gives an extra protection against casual problems. Note that this  file
       is  overwritten every time a page is successfuly changed, so save it somewhere if you want
       to keep it.
