Semantic MediaWiki (SMW), Forms and Templates on this wiki

We're using Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) to store a data structure of Articles, Events, Stacks (formarly editorials) and User pages (profiles). SMW allows us to store properties of these pages and query them elsewhere.

We use Forms to insert these data structures into the pages and Templates to display this data.


(Only thing that is using Cargo)
