    CaseChecker Bot[edit]

    A bot to fix broken links and incorrectly named pages that were accidentally written in a mix of Latin and Cyrillic letters. This bot is designed to run on all Cyrillic wikis. See bot's description for more information and to fix incorrect character mapping. Flopping and Tossin

    MediaWiki API[edit]

    • My new project is to take all that we learned from Query API, and implement a complete Read/Write interface for MediaWiki. Some of the features have already been implemented, but most work lies ahead. The largest hurdle to overcome will be separating logic from UI in the editpage.php. David has started some work in that direction, as can be seen in the LiquidThreads branch's editpage.php, but lots more work remains.
      • API Live - Just like query, the api is self describing.
      • API Specifications - In-depth description and examples of the API. Feel free to contribute.
      • API Source Code - You can keep tabs on the most recent changes here.
