SignWriting List
May 16, 2012

Thank you, Steve, for this new SignWriting MediaWiki Plugin (SWMP) !

I believe the SignWriting symbols used in the SWMP are the SVG Font? They look great!

Hi List,

I've updated the SignWriting MediaWiki Plugin (SWMP).  You can view the test wiki online:

MediaWiki is the software behind Wikipedia, Wiktionary, and more.  The SWMP is an extension for MediaWiki.
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SignWriting_MediaWiki_Plugin

There are several sign language projects for Wikipedia and Wiktionary that have been "Verified as eligible".

The next step for these projects is to " develop an active test project".

Currently, the SWMP allows the viewing of SignWriting within a MediaWiki install.  Sign data can be copied from SignPuddle and pasted into the MediaWiki software.

The purpose of the extension will be to run on the various WikiMedia Foundation servers.

I am actively pursuing this goal and hoping for the best.
