I've been looking at your SVG extension, it would be useful, but it would be even more useful if the svg's could be stored out of the main document and referenced with variable expansion i.e. [[Image:piechart.svg|slices=2|30|70]]. 05:31, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Regarding your syntax highlight extension, would you know enough to help get Ruby highlighting working? I posted a note on the talk page for it on wickle. -- Sy / (talk) 02:02, 1 September 2005 (UTC)

Yes, i am using it.

Graph Generation with aiSee & Wgraph[edit]

Generating graphs from textual input is quite useful and can be very challenging. I created a mediawiki extension, called mw:Extension:Wgraph which acts as an interface to a graph layouter called aiSee. Maybe you want to have a look at it? Manual and samples can be found on [1]. 15:52, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Improved Graphviz Extension[edit]

Dear Coffman,

I am a student assistant at the FZI [2], a German research center. We're using the Graphviz-Extension(s) for some of our own projects.

Actually the problem is that it is not that easy to use a GraphViz Extension, because there are many different versions and improvements circulating around on some for windows and others for linux, some work out of the box and others don't, some support different renderers and others have automatic clean-up . I think you know what I mean.

So I'm currently combining the various GraphViz Extensions into one functional and up to date Extension. This means that I try to get the best out of each extension and I think that the result is a very good "improved improved" GraphViz-Extension.

My question is now if you'd mind if I was refreshing the Extension-Page (mw:Extension:GraphViz) on MediaWiki as well. I'd like to clean up the old parts and the Discussion-Page so that there is space for some instructions.

If this is a problem, I will create another "Graphviz"-Extension, but I think that this would not help to get rid of the current chaos. You can have a look at my code and the corresponding page here: mw:User:Hummel-riegel/GraphViz

Of course I'll try to name all the actual and previous contributors like the FDL/GPL-Licences specify. And as this is a wiki feel free to add some stuff if you want to.

Thanks for your response in advance, Yours sincerely

P.S.: I posted this e-mail to the discussions-page of the Graphviz-Extension as well but I wanted to contact you separately.

Improved Graphviz Extension -2[edit]

Hello! I want to add SVG support to graphviz (I'm working on the extension that uses yours), where I should send patches?
