Project Identification using QR Codes

QR code


1. Enable links to external images to allow images hosted on an external website (e.g. the QR codes) to be displayed: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Linked_images#External_image_syntax

1.1 Less secure way: allow all images http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages

1.2 more secure way: all images from this site: http://chart.apis.google.com/ http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImagesFrom

2. Add this the Extension to embed RSS feeds: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RSS

3. Identify a couple more projects in the hackspace + print trial QR labels for them.


Attach printed-out QR codes to each project. That QR code will contain a link to the relevant project page on the wiki.


Project boxes and projects in the hackspace.


With any luck from 4th August onwards. I will print out a test batch.


This will facilitate collaboration as everyone can then find the most relevant wiki page for that project quickly.


Current project collaborators: samthetechie


I will use the google charts API (credit to jonty for the recommend). That will generate the QR code images.
