What can this extension do?Edit

Add a FormelApplet to your MediaWiki page.

The status of this extension has changed from experimental to beta, because FormelApplet now is successfully in use by other wikis.

Download instructionsEdit

Go to the $IP/extensions directory and create a subdirectory named FormelApplet.

Download the two files found below (see Download) and place them inside $IP/extensions/FormelApplet.

Note: $IP stands for the root directory of your MediaWiki installation, the same directory that holds LocalSettings.php.

If you want to use the FormelApplet without connection to the internet (using XAMPP, for instance), see Parameters


Be sure to use a MediaWiki with version >= 1.17.0, because this extension uses wfMessage()

To install this extension, copy the downloaded files FormelApplet.php and FormelApplet.i18n.php to the directory $IP/extensions/FormelApplet/ of your wiki (e.g. using FTP).

Add the following to LocalSettings.php:


If you are using an older version (<= 1.16.x) of MediaWiki, you will have to use an older version of this extension. Version 1.2a can be found at an older version of this page


The following tag will add a FormelApplet to your MediaWiki page:

<formelapplet width="600" height="300" solution="ZIP-504b0304140008...(many bytes)...010038000000840000000000" />

You can also pass other FormelApplet parameters. Example (smaller font size):

<formelapplet width="600" height="300" Fontsize="12" solution="ZIP-504b0304140008...(many bytes)...010038000000840000000000" />

You may create these tags by use of the FormelApplet Editor


For security reasons, the source code of the FormelApplet Mediawiki extension is no longer stored inside this wiki page.

You can download the source code of FormelApplet.php and FormelApplet.i18n.php or use the MediaWiki ExtensionDistributor to download the source code as an archive (*.tar.gz).
