Development guidelines

From Openresearch
Jump to: navigation, search


Proposed and tested

  1. Maintained Templates should be put in the Category:Template and have minimum explanation e.g. with Usage/Example
  2. all relevant Properties should be set via Templates/Forms -> make systematic handling possible
    1. make sure this holds true for Meta-Properties e.g Property:Homepage
      {{Property|has type=URL|isA=Property|used for=Concept:Event}}
  3. use bots like wikipush, wikiedit, wikinuke, wikiupload, wikuser to do mass changes of pages e.g. adding the source "WikiCfP" information to pages imported from WikiCfp
     This CfP was obtained from [ WikiCFP]
    {{Event|...|Source=wikicfp|eventId=3864| ...}}
  4. use WikiFarms for creating development copies e.g. prod 1x /dev 1x /test (1x per developer) (reversible!)
  5. document Server configurations in confluence (complete) and in openresearch (for non critical e.g. which extensions are used)
  6. Mapping to Aeon of properties is done via Property:mapsToAEON which for the time being references the vanilla wiki property according to (may be used this only as a temporary to work with a bot solution)
  7. Discussions by curators for each property are in the talk page e.g.
  8. There should be a usage guideline for curators for each property in the property page see

Copy of OpenResearch

  • We would like to make a "vanilla" copy of OpenResearch that focuses only on those concepts that are relevant to us.
  • We take the MVP approach, because otherwise things won't be manageable.
  • If/when someone misses something and complains, we can still (re-)add it.

Main Entities only

  • Only the ones used in templates, as discussed in the section below.
  • See e.g. PropertyUsage – e.g. DID is not used.
  • Define the cut-off threshold (e.g., with SEO we had said "25%").
  • The MVP wiki should implement its templates in such a way that arguments referring to properties below this threshold will be ignored.

isA Property

see Property:isA Should only be used once on an instance, because one "isA" type maps exactly to one template, whereas an instance can be in multiple categories. For the same "one template" reason, "isA" is not transitive. E.g., if we model Event and EventSeries as subclasses of Process, we don't use this "meta-level" information on the instance level (which takes effect for templates, forms, etc.). A non-flat hierarchy increases complexity of maintenance and for end users.

Entity List

see Template:EntityList

In such auto-generated overviews, properties considered "irrelevant" above (for lack of usage) should not appear. On such properties, use meta property "to be used later", "is related to milestone M", "not yet relevant", etc., by which we can filter.

used For

see Property:used for

Conference and Project (on which "usedFor" is apparently "used") are not among the relevant ones for us (see above). If we want to keep these entities, we should once more follow the "meta property" approach, e.g., say that "startDate usedFor Conference" is only valid in a certain range of time.

Event series

Make sure that templates, forms and property lists are aligned. Labels should correspond to property names. Here, e.g., some are uppercase, some are lowercase.

{{Event series
 | acronym = 
 | Title = 
 | Field = 
 | city =
  1. Property:acronym is OK
  2. Property:title is not OK (case different)
  3. Property:field is not OK (does not exist at all any more)

city label is linked to property "has_city"

Pushing Properties

Copy into the target wiki those properties that we have agreed to use. The following list of arguments can be generated by a query.

wikipush -s or -t test -p "Property:isA" "Property:used for" "Property:Acronym" "Property:Title" "Property:Start date" "Property:End date" "Property:Homepage" -f
copying 5 pages from or to test

3/5 (  60%): copying Property:Start date ...✅
4/5 (  80%): copying Property:End date ...✅

Simple Template

This style of templates is for debugging purposes and not for end user display. It can be easily generated with a few lines of python and an smw query. See also for more specific additions like #if and handling elements with multiple allowed entries
