The WikiPatterns Pattern Language

The pattern language for WikiPatterns has yet to be finalised. This template represents our starting-point, but we suspect that it is likely to be refined as we open the site to more contributors.

  • Name - all patterns must have a memorable name
  • Summary - after the name, sum up the intent of the pattern in one or two short paragraphs
  • Usage - describe in what circumstances this pattern arises, and how it is implemented
  • Example - relate the pattern back to some concrete example
  • Related Patterns - list other patterns that are influenced by, or influence the application of this pattern
  • Further Reading - list external sites, wikis, blogs that discuss the pattern
