Huggle is a MediaWiki diff browser intended for quick review of edits in order to find and revert vandalism and other unconstructive edits. It's written in C++ and can be extended with JavaScript extensions.

Huggle was originally created for English Wikipedia, but it was later ported to other large Wikimedia projects as well. Since version 3 Huggle can be used for non-WMF wikis as well—see Manual:Huggle/Deploying for more information.

Huggle reads all edits made to MediaWiki sites in real time using various providers (such as EventStreams, IRC RC changes, or MW API) and presents them to the user for review. It also helps users identify unconstructive edits and allows them to be reverted quickly. Various mechanisms are used to draw conclusions as to whether an edit is constructive or not. Huggle also uses a number of self-learning mechanisms, including a global white-list and integrates ORES into its scores.

Support and Development chat is available on #huggle connect.
