Hardware

Software

  • Apache+PHP+json extension
  • docroot/search.wikimedia.org source code
    • This is a simple PHP script that sends requests to the OpenSearch API of the target wiki and returns HTML-formatted results in the microformat that Apple Dictionary expects.

Usage

  • Production use began October 2007 with release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
  • Switched to OpenSearch backend in January 2008 to resolve performance and updating issues

Notes

  • Apple's client sends all queries as lowercase, so this requires a case-insensitive OpenSearch suggest backend. Currently this is provided using the TitleKey extension to MediaWiki.

How to recover in a hurry

  1. Set up an Apache+PHP box serving search.wikimedia.org
    • PHP's json extension required
