Extensions currently cannot be downloaded
Hi, Just to let you know. You no longer have to do that!
I have fixed the download, by simply implementing a link next to "Download Snapshot". The link text is Git, just click on it and it will automatically prompt for download a tar.gz archive which you can extract with tools like WinRAR, 7-zip, IZArc and pretty much any other ZIP/RAR archive program.
You will have to remove a code from the extracted folder, though. E.g. in your case when you download TitleKey, the resulting folder after extraction as of now is called "TitleKey-master-c5cf217", you should rename that to "TitleKey" before uploading it.
Though your method works it is quite tedious, a long process and unnecessary in comparison to a simple click on a download link.
Also when you clone the main software (i.e. core) through
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/core.git, you download the current development version, i.e. an unstable in-progress future version being worked on by MediaWiki developers, instead of the current stable release, which you can download here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download
sorry el man, but it does not work for http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:UploadLocal and for google maps extension. it only works for titlekey. how can i make the most recent stable version using the GIt bash? what would be the writtign that i would have to input? something like git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/stable/core.git i imagine. regards
well, so what can i do my friend to be able to donload the UploadLocal extension? i got tons of files to upload and MultiUpload (or any other bulk upload extension i have found) will not work as the MultiUpload. any workouround? regards
why was my message deleted? any workouround so i can download uploadloacal? regards
That's right, the UploadLocal extension has not been transferred to Git, since its author hasn't requested to do so yet.
For the moment, I cannot think of any other way than either installing TortoiseSVN and downloading it via the SVN URL below: http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/UploadLocal/ or simply clicking on it and downloading the files separately one-by-one.
For this extension there are only 6 files and 1 folder with 1 file in it after all, so it shouldn't take you more than than a minute.
I have now made this SVN link available in all the extensions, it is found right next to the Git link. (Git | SVN).
