Template talk:Planet Current Posts

From CDOT Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A bit of documentation about how the contents of this page get here:

  1. The script ~chris.tyler/planet/planet-2.0/runplanet.sh is run on zenit.senecac.on.ca once an hour (at :20) under crontab control.
  2. This script in turn runs /home/chris.tyler/planet/planet-2.0/runplanet.sh, which generates http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/~chris.tyler/planet
  3. This script next runs /home/chris.tyler/planet/venus/pmw, which accesses http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/~chris.tyler/rssview/index.php, which gets the RSS feed from the planet and outputs the first 16 entries in mediawiki markup format. The pmw script then logs into the CDOT wiki, accesses the Template:Planet_Current_Posts page, then posts the new data to that page.
  4. The template page is then transcluded into the Main Page of the CDOT wiki.
