Subject: emacs and orgmode implemented at beta.metaStudio.org
Newsgroups: gmane.emacs.orgmode

There are already quite a few implementations that have taken orgmode to
the online editing of wikis, blogs etc.  We did one more addition.

I am happy to inform you that we have implemented a collaboratively
editable wiki pages using a simple javascript editor based on Jay Salvat's
MarkItUp. (http://markitup.jaysalvat.com/home/).
 We forked it to create
orgitdown (https://github.com/gnowgi/orgitdown).
 the simple configurable
framework by MarkItUP helped us to define keyboard shortcuts.  Though a lot
more work needs to be done to make it full orgmode on the web, we are
already happy to see its effect.  Students and teachers who are never
exposed to online editing of wikis and blogs, could learn the simple
orgitdown editor with very little training.  We had no problem even in
producing Hindi language wikis using this process.

We process the text saved by orgitdown on the server using emacs and
orgmode macros in the batchmode.  the generated html file as well as the
original org text get saved in the database.  Versioning feature is
implemented using django-reversion.

Apart from the wiki pages, we also use it in a threaded discussion forum of
the beta.metaStudio.org.  This helps users to use structured markup, LaTeX
use, embedding videos and other java applets etc.   Some links to the pages
below.

Once again thanks for a great app.

A hindi page: http://beta.metastudio.org/gstudio/page/gnowsys-page/3471/

A wikpage with embedded video:

If any of you are interested in the orgitdown code, please wait till we do
the code merging on the github repo of orgitdown.  Else the current code is
pushed at the metaStudio's code at https://github.com/gnowgi/gnowsys-studio
