Installable with the Extension Manager


The Workstream is a internal twitter-like micro-blogging application that allows the wiki users to post short status updates. There is both a wiki page with recent updates and the ability to browse updates by user, and a panel easily installable in the wiki or in any space, with as well recent updates and a text box for one to update its status.

The Workstream application can be installed on XWiki versions 1.4.x and above

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

Download the XAR and import it.

The Workstream application relies on the Activity Stream plugin. Make sure you have it correctly installed and activated in your Wiki.

Add "Workstream.Translations" as an Internationalization Document Bundles, under the Programming section of the Administration pages of your wiki.

To add the Workstream panel to the whole wiki, or only to desired spaces, you can use the Panel Wizard. Just drag the workstream panel (you can find it under the "Information" section) to the desired column.

Start microblogging with your peers emoticon_wink
