This is a followup task for the "make a simple, pretty subitems theme widget (show)" task.

We need a similar subitems widget as the one for show view also for the modify (editor) view.

For the "modify" view, it should not link to the subitems, but use javascript to insert link or transclusion markup for the subitem into the editor textarea, so users can easily do that with just one click instead of having to remember the subitem name and type it in manually.


Your task:

  • see existing subitems widget of "show" view, think about code reusage
  • implement the widget for "modify" view
  • integrate your widget into modify view
  • chose some style (check existing css) to make it look pretty
  • work closely together with moin devs, demonstrate and discuss stuff regularly

Deliverables: changesets

Skill Requirements

See tags. A bit of jinja2 templating needed to modify existing templates and implement the widget (as a j2 macro?).
