TargetEdit

Main goal to achieve is to get tool which can represent mediawiki site content as file system. Since Mediawiki + Semantic Mediawiki + Semantic Forms (and related extensions) becomes more than just encyclopedia, but Knowledge(Information) Management System. However, structure grows and it's become harder to maintain this amount of forms, template and properties. Ability to manipulate mediawiki contents like files and folders can help with this problem. Mediawiki pages can be attached like virtual disk and manipulated from IDE, edited via favorite text editor, etc.
