API/AJAX features for WorkingWiki[edit | edit source]

A proof of concept for adding AJAX features and API actions to the existing WorkingWiki extension.

Currently it implements a sort of "hello world" api application and a trivial AJAX call that displays the api action result at the top of the extension's Special:ManageProject page.

Nearby locations for coordinate links on mobile app[edit | edit source]

Many infoboxes on Wikipedia contain coordinates which link to pages on the toolserver that show a whole load of info about these coordinates. It's not nice to click such coordinates in the mobile app and then having to open a browser to access the toolserver page, which also is not at all optimized for mobile use. The changes I made reuse the already existing "show nearby articles" feature of the mobile application, that shows articles near the location of the user, by displaying the same map, but with articles near the coordinates clicked. This results in a much better user experience.
