Title: A good Idea - Wiki page that lists all the scripts compiled from the forum
Post by: mysticjay on October 27, 2011, 08:15:13 pm
If it doesn't exist as of now, it would be a good Idea to have a wiki page just for scripts compiled from this forum - I think it would be very helpful...any thoughts?

Going through the forum and compiling the page....that's another story...  8)

For common stuff, we already have a placeholder Wiki page that can be updated:
    http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Scenes_Events#Samples

I wouldn't add every example from the Forum, as that's going to clutter it, but there are some common examples that could be added.

Also, when it gets large enough, it can be broken into child pages for Lighting events, Thermostat events, etc, etc.

Anyhow the framework is there so we can simply add to it.....  when the script is common enough for re-use by the masses. 

That said, I'd like to avoid having pages like that one use any form of back-link into the forums itself.  We'll probably confuse people by having to see the entire idea incubation period, rather than a cleanly documented final outcome snippet that's ready for use. 

@Henk has already taken a similar approach with the more common "HowTo" type pages that's he's built out, capturing the essence of key Forum postings that have wide end-user applicability.

I believe you already have Wiki posting rights, so you can add to that page as needed.

Adding MCV statement (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,6638.msg41496.html#msg41496) for completeness.

... at some point we need to merge the two together, doesn't make sense to have 2x Wiki pages for the same principle content.
