Wikilink

  • A wikilink looks like this: [[wikilink]]. They are text surrounded by two square brackets.
  • Wikilinks come, wait for it, from [[wiki]]s :) But they need not be limited only to things we usually think of as wikis.
    • You could use [[wikilinks everywhere]].
    • You can think of the Agora as a sort of distributed wiki, although users in this particular kind of wiki volunteer individual contributions instead of editing common pages (for now).
  • Wikilinks are the heart of this [[agora]].
  • [[pull]] [[wikilinks]] [[wikilinks everywhere]]

Wikilinks

  • [[pull]] [[wikilink]]
  • [[alternate names]]
    • [[vera]] suggested we rename these. Some brainstorming follows
      • [[multilinks]]: as they are unlike regular links in that they can point to many different places -- which particular URL they resolve to depends on the user clicking them.
      • [[querylinks]] ([[qlinks]]?): as they essentially behave as queries in the agora. queries return relevant subnodes/resources.
      • [[nodelinks]] as they map to nodes in the agora.

wikilinks

  • im also tempted to rebrand wikilinks
    • it's kinda a weird word
    • it's not the selling point for people to join the [[agora]] I thought it was going to be
  • wikilinks are cool, I just feel like they need a cooler name
  • potential alternative names
    • netlinks

[[2021-04-14]]

The plan is to get in at least two pomodoros in this to advance it somehow in the direction of a prototype. Will try to build on [[agora ext]].
