Hi, I have written a set of scripts to use MediaWiki as a static site generator and am
writing this mail to inform those who are interested in it.
The tool, ThisIsNotAWiki depends on Docker and the MediaWiki's file caching.
A docker container would launch an actual MediaWiki instance, import wikitext files, and
generate HTML files when ThisIsNotAWiki runs.
Unlike other static site generators that support Wikitext, ThisIsNotAWiki uses the same
engine as real wikis,
therefore all syntax is available, and skins and extensions can be enabled separately as
The tool is currently still in its infancy and it's why I prepended PoC on the title.
You can visit the repository on Github  or the project site  which was generated by
the tool itself for details.
: It now only supports the bundled extensions/skins.
