Abstract/summary (<20 words):
Making wiki pages more interactive and discussion-oriented by adding features like commenting, suggesting and tagging special parts of wiki.
Wiki pages are web pages that anyone can create or edit. We use them to collect information, documentation, and instructions on projects. At present we can create wikis, edit them and associate tags with them. But we can not add comments to this, can not make suggestions, can not tag a user for a special part in the wiki. We can make wikis more alive by implementing these features. And as shown in the diagram, implementing these as in Google docs would be more attractive. For this I will use the
publiclab/inline-markdown-editor. After implementing these features, a brief look of way of posting a comment is show below.
Additional notes or documents regarding wikis would be great. And I need guidance from Public Lab director board and from my mentor.
Yes I have forked the publiclab/plots2 repository and I have a running version in my local. And I pulled all the updates with remote repository.
Yes I went through the contributor guidelines and I have good knowledge about Git and I am very much familiar with both GitHub and GitLab. And yes, I have almost contributed to Public Lab
Me as a undergraduate student, teamwork is not a strange thing. In the university for all the academic projects we work as a team. In first year we developed a tv-remote and computer controllable wall clock with another five students. And in second year we developed a mobile app which dispalys web sites attractively, human friendly and which removes advertisements.Both of these projects were one year long and were 5 member groups. So I know that there are barriers, failures and conflicts when working with a team, and also with my experience I know how to manage difficulties and how to communicate with team mates positively.
As a deep nature lover and an observer, Public Lab always interests me. I always admire the work you guys do. And I started my open source path by this. The first feeling of getting a PR accepted was gained by Public Lab. So Yes, For sure Public Lab always interests me.
These are my previous contribution to the project
Yes I Understood that Importance of this project and I can spend required time period to complete particular task without being time oriented. and since my mentors and me are in completely different time zones I can keep my communication with my mentor organization without any interruptions and delays.
