Dashboard - available metrics


I would also like to have among the available metrics (in v1 or future versions, whatever makes sense):

  • (relatively easy to get): Page length, number of sections / headers, depth of headers (this is to reason about page structure and eventually, hopefully, be able to relate it to content types)
  • (maybe easy to get?): Number of comments or open topics on the page's Talk page (this is to reason about reader confusion or potential content gaps)
  • (probably hard to get): Readability score (not sure if this would fall under "Linter integration"?)

Create lists of pages using page metadata or subpage structure?


In addition to the views you describe for the MVP, I'm curious if for future versions, either PagePile or GULP (or the docs dashboard itself) might be able to support these additional ways of viewing metrics:

  • Input a parent page --> see metrics for its subpages, both in aggregate and with the option to display single-page metrics
  • Input a category (or multiple categories) --> see metrics for all pages tagged with those categories, both in aggregate and with the option to drill down to individual pages

I know we've discussed this but I can't remember what you said about it, and I want to write it down so I don't forget again :-) TBurmeister (WMF) (talk) 16:03, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
