Wikiup Installation

  1. Download the latest "tarball": wikiup-0.2.2.tar.gz

  2. Untar it, and in its main directory run the script, and install (as root) to put the Python modules in place:

    	./ install
            install src/parsewikiup /usr/bin

    In Debian, that script needs the package python-dev. Alternatively you can copy the lib/ module to the default Python library directory, and the script src/parsewikiup to /usr/bin or other directory from where it could be run. You can even copy both files to a directory where you have access, for example, your home directory if you do not have root privileges.

  3. If you are upgrading from a previous version, you should read about the changes in the history file. If you are a new user, you should read the Reference Manual.

  4. If you are going to use mathematical equations, you must have installed Latex and dvipng (

  5. To parse a source file "mypage" use:

            /directory/parsewikiup -o mypage.html mypage

    ("directory" is where you installed the scripts) to generate an HTML file mypage.html
