Gadgets provide a way for users to pick JavaScript or CSS based "gadgets" that other wiki users provide (For more technical details: mw:Extension:Gadgets). Many gadgets and scripts have been created by volunteers across Wikimedia projects, which add various useful features (such as improved editing experience, easy mass category modifications etc). The purpose of this page is to provide cross project statistics for gadgets and to improve gadgets sharing between projects.

  • For wiki admins:
    • Use the following statistics to find interesting gadgets your project is missing and other projects have.
    • For exporting gadget from source project, and importing it to target project, use Special:Gadgets/export/gadgetName in the source project (replace gadgetName to the correct name).
  • For users:
    • Explore the gadgets available in other projects, and if you find a cool gadget ask an admin in your home wiki to import it.
  • For developers:
    • You may use the following statistics to find highly requested features that are currently available only through gadget, and to convert it to extension.
