Category talk:Templates

From Organic Design

What do I need to know to create and use templates? This could be the content of a Help:Mediawiki templates article. The article features links to help articles, addresses FAQ's, shows examples and defines standards for template development. Maybe this could just be in the category article?

  • Distinguishing between types of templates: Wiki template; Template article; Mediawiki template - this is about Mediawiki templates
    • Link to articles for working on other kinds of templates
  • Begin with link to w:Help:Templates
    • Explain additional considerations to take into account for creating templates on OD
    • Link to some local examples of templates
  • Explain variables, they are often used in templates w:Help:Variables
  • Explain how templates tie into DPL
    • Discuss goals regarding template and DPL tie-in for OD

what is the difference between roles, "templates", training, procedure, and best practice?! --Phalseid 17:23, 12 Dec 2006 (NZDT)

it seems there would be some nodal correlation, right? --Phalseid 17:35, 12 Dec 2006 (NZDT)
  • A template is another word for class
  • Roles are human classes (and people are human instances)
  • Procedures are performed by the roles
  • Best practice are procedures evolved/refined through use and feedback
  • Training is a subset of a role's procedures similar to initialisation-processes for a class
In the nodal model procedures/processes are nodally reducable structures --Nad 08:40, 13 Dec 2006 (NZDT)
