Programmers often have advanced methods of browsing and working on Wikipedia. To participate in discussions on advanced Wikipedia skills, see theVirtual classroom. You are invited to share and compare your wikiways. What power tools do you use?
Below is a list of all the programming language userboxes on Wikipedia. Placing one of these on your userpage automatically lists you in Wikipedia's category system under the corresponding category so that other users may find you based on your skills.
A set of programming language userboxes follows the format:
The "path" is generally "Template:User ", however, in cases such as when the boxes are in User space, it may be something like "User:Chaos5023/Userboxes/".
"Lang" is the abbreviation of the programming language name. The abbreviation is 2-3 characters, but is only used for languages whose name is longer than 4 characters, or whose abbreviation is also a standard Wikipedia code for a language. Languages whose names are 4 characters or less simply use the language name.
"-x" is the skill level. There may be no skill level, which shows that the user uses that language, but not to what degree. Often skill levels -1 up to -4 are supported by corresponding templates. However, skill levels may extend as high as -6. Sometimes -0 and -N (derived from native, meaning superlative) are also offered.
If your language doesn't have a specific level userbox and you don't want to create it yourself, you can use a generic programming language userbox. Pages with these templates show the specified language skill, and belong to the corresponding general programming skill category:
