Rosetta Code talk:Village Pump/Suggest a language
Notice of merge
The other talk page was at Help talk:Request a new programming language.
Just wanted to note that "Cucumber" is not a language per/se. It is more of an IDE. Like Eclipse is not a language.
- That is a limitation of MediaWiki. It has been discussed here, but we have not had success. If you want to sign up and help us that would be great. As we are now (and for the forseeable future), we rely on volunteers, so it's tough to do much more than "default" with our setup. --Mwn3d 19:43, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
- That would be great! I would suggest planning your categorization publicly here first. We had a few attempts at categorizing tasks and at least one attempt at categorizing languages (based on features) before. In my opinion the task categorization is an overlapping mess now. At the very least you might find out that some categories are intuitive to you and not others (and maybe the other way). See Rosetta Code:Village Pump for directions on creating a topic -- I would suggest Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Language categories or something. Also you can come and chat about things in the IRC channel if you want, though not all users are active there. Thanks in advance for your help! --Mwn3d 20:36, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
- Heh. This is MediaWiki. Wikipedia switched to a fancy new theme that wasn't available to general MediaWiki last time I upgraded the server software. I'll get the server software updated again, it's just taking a while to hit the right opportunity. --Michael Mol 11:25, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
I think if you take the below code and change the classes to "firstheading" or something like that, it should place it in upper right of page. No harm in leaving the "sidebar" search where it is.
<div id="p-search" class="portlet">
<div id="searchBody" class="pBody">
<form action="/mw/index.php" id="searchform">
<input type='hidden' name="title" value="Special:Search"/>
<input id="searchInput" title="Search Rosetta Code" accesskey="f" type="search" name="search" />
<input type='submit' name="go" class="searchButton" id="searchGoButton" value="Go" title="Go to a page with this exact name if exists" />
<input type='submit' name="fulltext" class="searchButton" id="mw-searchButton" value="Search" title="Search the pages for this text" />

Syntax highlighting is impossible
Some programming language cannot be made syntax highlighting, such as Forth and TeX. (Actually it is possible to make syntax highlighting with Forth but it would be necessary to execute the code in order to do so, and therefore the syntax highlighter must be written in Forth; I believe such an implementation exists.) --Zzo38 (talk) 06:09, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
