I've written 4 files that, together, make it so you can save to an OddMuse wiki.

Basically, it goes like this:

  • A script is called from Inkscape when the user saves,
  • the script reads the SVG document to figure out what directory it was saved to,
  • the script reads it to figure out what filename was used as well,
  • information about the target wiki is read from the directory the SVG was saved to,
  • the Inkscape SVG is uploaded to the wiki,
  • and a PNG version is uploaded to the wiki as well.

This all requires 4 files:

  • odd_output.inx -- Inkscape extension definition
  • -- coordinates most everything
  • -- scans the SVG file for <svg ...> attributes
  • -- oddmuse upload script

Furthermore, the user creates a custom file, "notes.txt". The file details the username and wiki URL for

The full description of how it works is on CommunityWiki.

Next, I intend to write code to read Inkscape SVG from the wiki as well.
