What is WikiImport?WikiImport is a feature that allows you to import an entire wiki or subwiki from another FitNesse site. All of the pages from the remote wiki will be copied to your local FitNesse installation and become part of your local wiki.
Why should I use WikiImport?In a development environment it is most practical to have a main FitNesse server where all the tests are maintained and new tests are added. However, it is not practical for all the developers to run the tests on one server. Therefore each developer should have a FitNesse installation in their development environment. The test pages from the main server get imported by each developer so they can execute the most recent tests against their current code base.
How do I use WikiImport?Create a page or use an existing page that will contain the imported wiki. Open the properties view of this page. There is a form title Wiki Import. Supply the URL to the remote wiki that you'd like to import and submit the form. This will take you to an import view where you will see all the imported pages being listed. It may take a few moments for the import to complete. You will know it's complete when the bottom of the page is visible and ends with an imported page count.
Once a wiki has been imported, it may be updated at any time. Simple open the properties view of the importing page or any imported page. There will be a button in the Import Wiki section. Clicking this button initiate an update of all the imported pages beneath the currently selected page.
