Template talk:Planet Current Posts
From CDOT Wiki
A bit of documentation about how the contents of this page get here:
- 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.
- This script in turn runs /home/chris.tyler/planet/planet-2.0/runplanet.sh, which generates http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/~chris.tyler/planet
- 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.
- The template page is then transcluded into the Main Page of the CDOT wiki.
