Sleipnir-archive / Home


The sleipnir-archive repository is read-only as it is intended solely for archeological research. The sleipnir repository contains Sleipnir source code and its history.


Prior to March 24, 2011, the "Sleipnir" repository here on bitbucket included external libraries and so was split into two separate repositories. The resulting repositories are now named:

  • sleipnir-extlib (this contains everything that was under the extlib/ directory)
  • sleipnir-archive (this basically contains everything else -- see below for details)


sleipnir-archive was created from the original libsleipnir/sleipnir repository of March 24, 2011, using "hg convert" with the following filemap:

exclude "extlib"
rename "trunk" "."

Wiki features

This wiki uses the Creole syntax, and is fully compatible with the 1.0 specification.

The wiki itself is actually a Mercurial repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to bitbucket. To clone it, run:

$ hg clone

Wiki pages are normal files, with the .wiki extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.

Syntax highlighting

You can also highlight snippets of text, we use the excellent Pygments library.

Here's an example of some Python code:

def wiki_rocks(text):
	formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
	return formatter(text)

You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark the vast library of Pygment lexers, we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.
