Semantic MediaWiki

Calendar Tools

Semantic Result Formats (SRF) is a MediaWiki extension, used in conjunction with the Semantic MediaWiki extension, that bundles a number of further result formats for SMW's inline queries. The individual formats can be added to the installation independently, including...
(Extension:Semantic Result Formats/calendar format replaces the Extension:Semantic Calendar.)
(The Discourse DB Opinion calendar is a use-case example of the Extension:Semantic Result Formats/calendar format.)

User Registration

This extension tweaks user registration process in order to make users populate their user pages with semantic data at registration time.
Dave's notes: This extension appears abandoned. Also may want to look for an option that can integrate with SocialProfile.

Semantic MediaWiki Plus (SMW+)

Moved the extensive notes once found in this section to User talk:WikiMaster/SMW Sandbox.

List of Semantic Wiki Engines

Semantic MediaWiki | SMW+

- Semantic Toolbar, allowing to quickly inspect, create and alter the semantic annotations of a wiki article
- Advanced Annotation Mode, for annotating contents semantically in a WYSIWYG-like manner without having to cope with the wiki source text
- Auto-completion, suggesting entities or data existing in the wiki while typing (e.g. when annotating in the wiki-text or filling in input fields)
- Graphical query interface, empowering users to easily compose queries and preview query results with different output formats
- Ontology browser, enabling intuitive browsing and changing of the wiki's ontology and lookup of instance and property information
A recurring event is any event that occurs more than once, according to a pre-defined rule: examples are weekly meetings, anniversaries and birthdays.
The semantic technologies of SMW+ complement the dynamic and community-driven characteristics of wikis, making it the perfect tool for collaborative, wiki-based project management.[1]

Deployment Framework

The Deployment Framework is a tool that allows the convenient management of MW extensions and content bundles of a wiki installation. Also, it is contained in SMW+ Community and Professional Edition for automating the process of upgrading and extending SMW+.[2]

Installing SMW+ Deployment Framework

Installation Note: We recommended that you install the Deployment Framework on a plain MW installation; the Deployment Framework may later on not update those extensions that were installed manually or those that have been customized.[3]

Adding and modifying data

Semantic Forms
Authors First Released Links
Yaron Koren, Stephan Gambke and others May 2007
Semantic Forms allows for the creation of forms to add and edit wiki pages, using the fields within the page's MediaWiki template calls as the fields of the form. All semantic data is meant to be held within templates, and not directly within wiki pages. Templates assign a semantic property to some or (preferably) all of their fields; the type of each semantic property helps determine what sort of input will show up for that field in the form. Data autocompletion is also enabled, as are a variety of other features. Forms can additionally be used for querying the wiki's data.

SMW OntologyEditor
Authors First Released Links
ACTIVE Team STI Innsbruck January 2010
The SMW OntologyEditor is an extension of SemanticMediaWiki and has been developed as part of the ACTIVE project ( in order to enable the development of lightweight ontologies. The focus of the editor is to provide an easy understandable interface to develop ontologies and to ensure consistency of the knowledge base by providing a set of knowledge repair algorithms. The main features are:
  • Development of lightweigth ontologies (vocabularies, categories, properties, elements)
  • Import/Export of OWL/XML files and folksonomies
  • Knowledge repair algorithms (errors, redundancies, inconsistencies)
