I can't speak for the Wikimedia tech folks, but as someone who's done
some creation of on-wiki tours I'll say...
Wow, this is really cool! This is exactly the kind of thing we need to
really open up the creation of Guided Tours to the community. I'm
imagining this as MediaWiki gadget, such that a user can enable it,
record a walkthrough on the wiki itself, and then at the end, have the
opportunity to save the resulting walkthrough code on a wiki page. Is
that feasible, or is the WalkHub documentation format too far away
from the MediaWiki extension implementation of GuidedTours?
Integrating it into Wikipedia might be a great project for someone to
tackle as an Individual Engagement Grant project.
Thanks, Kristof! I read in YouTube comments that you're planning
another crowdfunding campaign for this. I look forward to pitching in!
