The ID Generator extension provides a minimalistic sequential numeric ID generation function.

The wikitext {{#next_number:}} outputs 1 the first time it is used, then 2, etc.

Installable and usable without running the update.php maintenance script. Created as alternative to the IDProvider extension since it cannot be installed via Composer and moreover requires an extra database table.
