MoinMoinWiki extensions are different from Mediawiki modifications or Tikiwiki modifications since MoinMoin has a framework for extensions, so that its core wiki code does not need to be "modified" to add new features, e.g. a MoinMoin parser for a wikitext standard. See wiki code for detailed comparison of other features.
Since MoinMoin is written in Python it may be easier to integrate with mobile device code which is starting to adopt that language for scripting of location-based services and other worn device capabilities.
Some extensions likely required for Consumerium Services include:
- MoinMoin parser for a wikitext standard, e.g. the GFDL text corpus conventions emerging from mediawiki use
- MoinMoin skin suitable for use on laptops and portable devices and kiosks.
- Barcode (or RFID or NFC ID) lookup of product or company URI - selecting appropriate natural language, simple vocabulary, and credibility (perhaps based on user faction) from many versions all maintained in the wiki
- integration with other mobile device code
- Faction support to enable edit disputes and settle relative credibility; For instance, capacity to hide a version from everyone whose faction gives the version low credibility, while making it the default for those who accept that faction's point of view; This can replace the sysop power structure which gets out of control easily, e.g. Wikipedia, and bad permission-based models of editing which are known not to work at all.
