Make Flow database accessible on Tools Labs

  • Problem: Flow is a new extension that totally change user experience about discussions, and technical specifications. One of the important problem of the usage of this extension on Wikimedias wiki is that tools, bots and other programs hosted on Tools labs servers can't access easily to these datas. For example, the web service that provide lots of statistics about users can't deal with Flow edits, that are not take into account.
  • Who would benefit: Users of the many applications hosted on the tools. Many bots and other tools could benefit indirectly from it.
  • Proposed solution: Make Flow database available / accessible on Labs/Tools, so developers can access to these datas and show them to readers.
