Let's build the free tutorials platform

We are gathering developers around the world to improve all aspects of the Wikifab platform.

It's free and open source

Dear Programmers, Welcome to our Garage !

Join our programming community and work with other developers to make Wikifab.org the most powerful tutorial platform on a wiki-basis of the world. On this page, you will find useful resources, guides and reference material for developers.

The Wikifab system was originally designed by Clément Flipo and Pierre Boutet. The codebase is now being maintained by a community of volunteers.

Getting Started !

Wikifab is free software and any developer can contribute to the project. Everything you need is in the GitHub repository. Please make sure to read and follow the development process described in the README, as well as to provide good quality code and respect all guidelines.

Development discussion takes place on GitHub and the wikifab-development mailing list at sourceforge. Less formal development discussion happens on Goolge+ #wikifab-dev (web interface, logs).

API Documentation

The Export page, which provides bulk export of wiki content as XML. Read the Export help article on meta.wikimedia.org for more information.

A simple example

This URL tells English Wikipedia's web service API to send you the content of the main page:


Use any programming language to make an HTTP GET request for that URL (or just visit that link in your browser), and you'll get a JSON document which includes the current wiki markup for the page titled "Main Page". Changing the format to jsonfm will return a "pretty-printed" HTML result good for debugging.

Here is the jsonfm URL as an easier-to-read clickable link.

api.php?action=query&titles=Main%20Page&prop=revisions&rvprop=content&format=jsonfm try in ApiSandbox
