Migrate Wikisource specific edit tools from gadgets to Wikisource extension

  • Problem: There are many useful edit tools gadgets on some wikisources. Many of these should be used everywhere, but...
    • Not every user knows, he can import script from another wiki.
    • Some of these script cannot be only imported, they must be translated or localised.
    • Majority of users will search these tools on en.wikisource, but there are many scripts eg. on it.wikisource too
  • Who would benefit: Editors on other Wikisources
  • Proposed solution: Select the best tools across wikisources and integrate them as new functions.

It would be good to point to these gadgets or describe the proposed process to choose and approve propositions of gadgets to integrate. --Wargo (talk) 21:35, 17 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
1) Ask communities for the best tools on their wikisource
2) Make list of them, with comments, merge potentially duplicates
3) Ask communities again which ones should be integrated.
4) Make global version and integrate it (eg as beta function)
There is one problem, single-wikis gadgets are often hidden for others due language barrier etc. JAn Dudík (talk) 21:31, 18 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
