Viewing PmWiki Page History
Out-of-the-box, PmWiki display’s page history as line-change diffs: before and after only of affected lines. If you select “restore”, you are dropped in an editor at that state.
I would like to see a (MediaWiki-style) diff where the entire page-as-it-was is visible.
Why? For Xrays Mona Lisa -- I want to be able to see the transition/transformations in time, the text ebb and flow.
Ideally, I would also like to (automatically) animate this history.
Automating Wikipedia History a call for a plugin to animate edit-history that links to a dead page at Infoworld, but is now archived @
Heavy metal umlaut: the movie. I don’t know if that video was automated, but that’s what I would like to show.
You can manually edit a file to remove portions of history
History can be set to expire (
$DiffKeepDays or CookBook:ExpireDiff); I don’t like this, in general -- especially for the XRML scenario, above.
It’s also possible to custom remove individual page-histories.
