Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

This article is a stub. You can help the wiki by expanding it.




dot_sent came up with a tool for editing the FlightGear wiki, it's written in Perl and the source code is on Github, feel free to lurk around and modify to your taste if you feel like it: https://github.com/dot-sent/FlightGearWikiClient[1]

In addition, there is the Instant-Cquotes script (written in JavaScript) which started out as a userscript (via GreaseMonkey), which got meanwhile ported to the Web extension framework. dot_sent mentioned plans to also use JavaScript for his tool.


For the sake of simplicity, it's recommended to have the following tools installed:

  • git
  • npm
  • node.js
  • web-ext

Testing the extension
