How to make category with property and value - mediawiki-extensions

I want to create a page with a catergory Actor, property:located in and value height :180 using semantic media wiki API . I want to query the same using parser function. The sample example may be like I have #ask SMW extension for that. i got the result using #ask. I need to do the same using SMW . can some one kindly help me with this. This is the statement i used to query in parser function.
$this->wgOut->addHTML('<h2>{{#ask: [[Category:Actor]] | ?located in| ?height}} </h2>');

What, $this->wgOut->addHTML? O_o Please don't hack PHP files.
Just edit a wiki page and add your #ask syntax in it. You can first visit Special:Ask to tweak your query, then click "embed code" to get the syntax you need to post in the wiki page. From my understanding of your question, it's probably something like:
{{#ask: [[Category:Actor]] [[height::180]] | ?located in| ?height}}


Python - Get Result of Google Search

My goal is to create a small sript that find all the result of a google search but in "raw".
I don't speak english very well so i prefer to give an exemple to show you what i would like :
I Type : elephant
The script return
I was thinking about urllib.request but the return value will not be usable to that !
I found some tutorials but not adapted at all to my wish !
Like i told you my goal is to have an .txt file as output witch contains alls the website who match with my query !
Thanks all
One simple way is to make a request to google search, then parse the html result. You can use some Python libraries such us Beautiful Soup to parse the html content easily, finally get the url link you need.
These seem to change often, so hopefully this answer remains useful for a little while...
First, you'll need to create a Google Custom Search, by visiting their site or following the instructions provided here
This will provide you with both
Custom Search Engine ID
credentials which are needed to use the service.
In your python script, you'll want to import the following package:
from googleapiclient.discovery import build
which will enable you to create a build object:
service = build("customsearch", developerKey=my_api_key)
According to the docs, this constructs a resource for interacting with the API.
When you want to return search results, call execute() on service's cse().list() method:
res = service.cse().list(q=my_search_keyword, cx=my_cse_id, **kwargs).execute()
to return a list of search results, where each result is a dictionary object. The i'th result's URL can be accessed with the "link" key:
ithresult = res[i]['link']
Note that you can only return 10 results in a single call, so make use of the start keyword argument in .list(), and consider embedding this call in a loop to generate several links at a time.
You should be able to find plenty of SO answers about saving your search results to a text file.
N.B. One more thing that confused me at first - presumably you'll want to search the entire web, and not just a single site. But when creating your CSE you will be asked to specify a single site, or list of sites, to search. Don't worry, just enter any old thing, you can delete it later. Even Google endorses this hack:
Convert a search engine to search the entire web: On the Custom Search
home page, click the search engine you want. Click Setup, and then
click the Basics tab. Select Search the entire web but emphasize
included sites. In the Sites to search section, delete the site you
entered during the initial setup process.
I just add 2 points to "9th Dimension" answer.
Use this guide to find your Custom Search Engine ID
A small modification should be made in the second line of the code: as the following, the "version" should be added as an argument
service = build('customsearch','v1',developerKey= my_api_key)
You have 2 options - using API or make a request like a browser does and then parse HTML.
First option is rather tricky to set up and is limited - 100 free queries/day, then 1000 for $5.
Second option is easier but it violates Google's ToS.

Sorting a view by dropdown

Hey, i've been looking around for a ajax dropdown sorter for my Views in Drupal.
Unfortunatly, i haven't found alot of usefull information about this subject.
Can anyone tell me if theres a solution already available or can help me started on a custom module by telling me which hooks i should use?
I had a similar issue. Unfortunately I wasn't able to sort the data from the database which is by far the best way. I was however able to take the data and sort it with PHP using a preprocessor function. Depending on the name of your view, setup a function similar to the following:
function templatename_preprocess_name_of__view(&$vars)
//Super sweet sorting code goes here
The name of your view needs to follow the name of the template file that it is driven by, if there isn't on you should create one. Make sure to change dashes to underscores in your function name. Hope this is helpful. If you find a way to do it from the DB I'm all ears because that would be super awesome.

Customize Google Custom Search

Does anyone know how to span the search result set over all of the links provided in google custom search . For Example, if I have provided sites like site 1,site n to search from ,then I want say top five results from all of these individual websites as JSON. Is there a way to achieve this.
I know this may be a little late but might be able to help someone out .
This will return 2 results via the REST API for GCSE.,items&filter=1&num=2&prettyPrint=true&q=querystring
its the num=2 part your looking for...

Can I use predictive text on jqgrid during form editing or adding?

I have a jqgrid on which I am representing students. I want to enable predictive text to give suggestions to the user as they type the names of the student. If the name is LIKE any name in the database, I want to give them the option to select it. This may occur for the first and last names only.
In the suggestions, all need to do is send the student ID accross in the post of the form. If the value is not empty then I can work with the ID from there.
Any ideas as to how this may be achieved ?
Any resources you can point me to ?
jqGrid has a built in "autocomplete" module that I believe you're looking for. You can see some direct php documentation here. This is assuming you're using the php API, however. Their full documentation of the PHP API here.

Custom placeholders in user story

I am trying to publish user stories on a facebook user's wall using graph api.
My use case is like this:
the user wrote an article that regards a specific community
I created one action 'writes' and two objects 'article' and 'community'.
The two objects have each their pages on my website, where I created all the corresponding meta data for open graph. Tested with the Open Graph Object Debugger and it looks fine.
Now I wanted to customize the way the story is shown.
The default sentence is for example
"[user] wrote [article.noun] via [appname]"
(brackets are there just to identify placeholders)
but I would like to include information about the community.
So what I did is add a property to the write action, called community that expects a reference to a community object.
Then I changed the sentence to:
"[user] wrote [article.noun] on community.title via [appname]"
via triboom demo"
but community.title is just treated as plain text and not as a placeholder.
Is there a way to tell FB to use the property value in the sentence?
I could not find any documentation on this.
Ok, just found out you need to use {} syntax (doc is here
Will investigate more and update the answer if it works.
Thank you very much for posting that!
How can the placeholders be referenced if there are more than one objects in the sentence? Like, for example, in the "One to Two" sentence:
"[user] wrote [article1.noun] and [article2.noun] on community.title via [appname]"
