Figlet Extension

Integrate figlet text into wiki pages using figletlink in a custom Mediawiki extension:

Syntax[edit]

<figlet>text</figlet> (default font=standard)

<figlet font=fontname>text</figlet> (set another font)

<figlet>$fonts</figlet> (show font list)

<figlet font=$self>$self</figlet> (special for template usage, $self=pagename)

Example[edit]

<figlet>moo</figlet>

<figlet>moo</figlet>

Result[edit]

<figlet font=digital>moo</figlet>


Example[edit]

<figlet>$fonts</figlet>

Result[edit]

<figlet>$fonts</figlet>


For all fonts also see Category:Figlet

Source[edit]

Historic: The original idea by DrOwl: "this is a first untested version with just monkey knolage of how to make it work"

<highlightSyntax> <?php

  1. Figlet Mediawiki extension
  2. using shell figlet
  3. by DrOwl 21.06.2005 modded from
  4. by mutante 25.03.2005
  5. modded again 21.05.2005 ,mutante
  6. modded again Owl & mutante 20.06.2006 - the slightly more secure 23 line version

$wgExtensionFunctions[] = "wfFigletExtension";

  1. extension hook callback function

function wfFigletExtension() { global $wgParser;

  1. install parser hook for <figlet> tags

$wgParser->setHook( "figlet", "renderFiglet" ); } function renderFiglet( $input ) { global $wgOutputEncoding; $input = mysql_escape_string($input);

$output="

";
$output.=shell_exec("figlet " . escapeshellarg($input));
$output.="
