Do you write user scripts for wikisource projects too? if not can you write one?

We at mrwikisource project are facing hell of a trouble about ocr tools. we need some tool to mass ocr pages. Atleast a one book at a time kind of tool. is it possible for you to write such a script? thanks QueerEcofeministšŸŒˆ 12:52, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • @QueerEcofeminist: Is that like you want to extract text from images? I've never been active on wikisource projects and have no idea what contexts that kind of tool is used in, unfortunately. It seems like there are JavaScript OCR libraries like Tesseract.js out there so it should at least be possible to make an on-wiki OCR tool, but this is pretty much beyond the scope of "write a script" and is more like "create an application" or "build a universal library", as far as I'm concerned. How about filing a feature request on phablicator? Dragoniez (talk) 13:21, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Yeah. I think I should go for that only. A phabricator request seems workable. I don't know why I haven't thought it a about yet. Thanks QueerEcofeministšŸŒˆ 13:59, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    @QueerEcofeminist: You're welcome, sorry I can't provide any technical help but glad I was at least able to give you some idea. --Dragoniez (talk) 15:38, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The lock checks can be improved by adding the lock reason to the tooltip. See also a similar change on enwiki. DatGuy (talk) 16:32, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • @DatGuy: Thanks for the info. I've never thought of using list=logevents to achieve this. I'm a bit busy right now but will have a closer look when I have time for that. Dragoniez (talk) 16:50, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
