Summary by SSastry (WMF)

The gadgets are now listed on the help page

PerfektesChaos (talkcontribs)

Please see lintHint@PerfektesChaos with functionality:

  1. Analyse current page.
  2. Analyse arbitrary wikitext sequence or any page.


Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@PerfektesChaos, hi, would you like to add a link about it on the actual page perhaps? It only needs a basic description.

PerfektesChaos (talkcontribs)

This advertising is supposed to be added to the connected page.

However. that should be done by a higher polynomial degree, not by myself, and someone might declare it as harmless.

Even more, there is no Tools and Aides section yet on target page.

On doc page enough text material to be copied is available.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

By all means, please do feel free to add where you see it fit, the wiki way.

Here's an example of how that's been done in the past.

PerfektesChaos (talkcontribs)

That should remain business of someone with “(WMF)” terminated nick. I am not pushing myself to the front.

@Whatamidoing (WMF) sent a THX 11 days ago.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I guarantee this is not the case. Us being around does not mean we own these pages, by any means.

Deryck Chan (talkcontribs)

Do we have a curated list of tools available for semi-automatically fixing all these (linted) errors?

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I don't think so. Would you like to start one? I am not aware of those which have not already been mentioned (Linter, NicoV's one, and the one from this thread).

Deryck Chan (talkcontribs)
Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That one.

PerfektesChaos (talkcontribs)

Apparently not.

I might advertise WikiSyntaxTextMod@PerfektesChaos which happens to fix some automatically while editing for other reasons, and identifies some other problems and warns on manual source editing. Running since 2010, mostly on German WP.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I just want to acknowledge how lintHint gets praised by community members who aren't their creator :p (it's mentioned in this comment at it.wp). I don't mean to say the other tools aren't equally useful, but thought that this endorsement mattered as it comes from another community that also switched early.

G-Translator told me the it story.

Ah, Italian, since lintHint 3 is on alpha testing and close to be published, I would be happy to get a human translation in Italian for the following text fragments:

  • Show LintErrors analysis live.
  • Fill balanced wikitext into first input area and press adjacent submit button, or enter page name into second input field (might be followed by revision ID).
  • select problem in source text
  • Wikitext page not found
  • Future problems detected.
  • linter error analysis support
  • Analyze previous revisions, too.
  • Run analysis automatically in namespaces on visit rather than manually triggered by button.
  • Convert all source edit links on LintErrors special page into ParserMigration tool edit.
  • Suppress small label if no error detected.
  • Space separated list of namespace numbers, for automatized analysis or - or *

Italian utenti will benefit from that.

Sakretsu (talkcontribs)
  • Mostra analisi degli errori di Lint in diretta.
  • Inserisci il wikitesto nella prima area di input e premi il tasto di invio adiacente, oppure scrivi il titolo della pagina nel secondo campo (potrebbe essere seguito dall'ID della revisione).
  • Seleziona un problema nel testo sorgente
  • Pagina di wikitesto non trovata
  • Futuri problemi individuati.
  • Supporto per l'analisi degli errori di Lint
  • Analizza anche le revisioni precedenti.
  • Esegui automaticamente l'analisi nei namespace all'accesso, piuttosto che avviandola manualmente tramite bottone.
  • Converti tutti i link di modifica sorgente presenti sulla pagina speciale Errori di Lint nello strumento di modifica ParserMigration.
  • Nascondi l'etichetta in assenza di errori rilevati.

About the last one, I'm not sure what it refers to.

Daimona Eaytoy (talkcontribs)

@PerfektesChaos Thanks for the tool :-) About the last one, if I understand correctly, it should be a label for a field containing a list of space separated namespaces where to perform an automated analysis, - for none or * for all. If so, a translation might be "Lista di namespace, in formato numerico separati da spazi, dove effettuare l'analisi. Usare - per la lista vuota e * per indicarli tutti"

PerfektesChaos (talkcontribs)

Gracie, both of you.

I presume next weekend a pre-release of something like a version 2.9 ahead of 3.0 will be online, containing your texts. There you might do a last check.

@Daimona Eaytoy @Sakretsu

If you change temporarily in the JavaScript call from /r.js into /d.js you will find your texts on these pages:

For the benefit of utenti italiano I prepared w:it:Utente:PerfektesChaos/js/lintHint. Currently this is just a redirect. After version 3 has been released and English documentation was updated you might translate some most important sections, linking to English base documentation where less interesting.

Daimona Eaytoy (talkcontribs)

Tested it, everything seems fine, well done! And yeah, we'll provide some kind of translation there once ready. Thanks again!

PerfektesChaos (talkcontribs)

Version 3 has been released now.

The German story shows what is basically needed on a translated user guide. However, the JavaScript section is not very important any longer, since the interactive customization has been introduced. The English mother documentation is adding full information for programmers and maintainers which is not needed for using.
