Spread the love          One of the most interesting aspects of Semantic Mediawiki is the data to chart integration, done though the Semantic Result Formats extension, and using the Jqplotchart and Jqplotseries formats, which in itself are based on jqPlot. However, it’s documentation and code examples are not as thorough as one can expect. Requirements To start with, just make sure you have all the proper extensions installed, namelly: Mediawiki version prior to 1.21(*) (1.20.6 is OK) Semantic Mediawiki 1.8 – Both SWM and SRF are undergoing some changes, so it’s better to keep a specific version. Semantic Results Formats 1.8 (*) There are some reports of problems with mediawiki 1.21, which I don’t wan’t to go though right now, so to make thing simpler, just avoid this version. Then, let’s create some data to test with. To make things easier, I created a mostly self contained wiki page with most code here. But lets go through all steps: Create data I created a series of sub objects which contain dummy data.

However, on most of them you cannot publish a link to a web service, without putting it on a Microsoft Word file. This is as companies’ fault at it is the user’s. Even today, for some users it’s unimaginable to send a photo without putting it inside a Word file. Linking different files or contents through … a link, is pure witchcraft for those people. However, those are the behaviors some companies value the most. On those companies, there is not such thing as information outside a file, how wrong they are… This hasn’t all been the case… There is a growing mountain of research. But there is increased evidence that we are being bogged down today as specialization extends. The investigator is staggered by the findings …
