[OSM-dev] Wikipedia slippymap

Hi.

Wikipedia has implemented a Slippymap using OpenLayers so I was
wondering if the code/method is publically available? I'm interested in
adding that functionality to osm.is since it will encourage people to
use an OSM map rather than the other non-free maps available for
Iceland. I also know that some of the people in the Icelandic Wikipedia
would be interested since it will encourage people to check out articles
on is.wikipedia.

Could you help me find the source code for both the OpenLayers layer and
the server-side code which produces the coordinates of Wikipedia
articles in a certain area? I guess Wikipedia wouldn't like me to use
the resources of toolserver.org for it.

With regards,
Svavar Kjarrval
