From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This page is an overview of tools I wrote for use with Wikimedia projects. Most of them run on the Toolserver on a live copy of the project databases.

Please use the talk page for questions and comments about my tools. If I do not respond, please leave a quick note on my talk page at the german wikipedia. See related changes for the latest talk and other activity.

  • ToolTOC - online overview of available tools.
  • download page - may not be up to date. Beware that the downloads are just for kicks - nothing there is ready for production, most is tailored specifically for the toolserver.
  • source browser - read the source, Luke
  • usage statistics - some usage statistics, collected with rrdtool

Tools for Categories[edit]

Tools for Users[edit]

  • User:Duesentrieb/ActiveUsers [4]: finding users that were active in the last minutes/hours, filtered by groups, tags or categories.
  • User:Duesentrieb/Gallery [5]: Image gallery, optionally filtered or grouped by user. Shows usage and tagging status. Also supplies an RSS feed of recent uploads.

Tools for Images[edit]

Tools for Articles[edit]

  • User:Duesentrieb/Contributors [15]: shows the version history of a page, with options for sorting, filtering, grouping, and different output formats. May be used to copy a version history on a wiki page.


  • User:Duesentrieb/WikiProxy [16]: caching proxy for article text (all revisions). This is intended for use by other tools. It will become obsolete when there is full text replication on the toolserver.
  • User:Duesentrieb/CommonsTicker : collects critical events regarding images on Commons and posts them to the wikis using the respective image
