  • User:SD0001/parseTemplate.js - ok, this isn't a script, this is a JS utility function for dealing with templates in wikitext. I'm looking forward to seeing this get used in others' scripts. SD0001 (talk) 09:08, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: Cool. I'll label this as a "meta-script" if that's okay with you. Can you make a doc page? --DannyS712 (talk) 09:17, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: Don't know if you saw my comment - can you make a doc for this, seeing how you want it to be used as a "JS utility function"? --DannyS712 (talk) 06:41, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
    Sorry, didn't see this earlier. Usage instructions are given at the top of the js page as a comment. Still I'll try to make a dedicated /doc page whenever I get time. SD0001 (talk) 14:22, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
  • User:SD0001/twinkleos.js - a proposed oversight module for Twinkle. Can be used by Twinkle users only. (Should I bother to create a /doc page, or is it ok without it?). SD0001 (talk) 09:08, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: Nice. 3 things. Please do bother with a doc page, if not for me than for twinkle. Can I suggest you check that the user has oversight rights before adding the portlet, to avoid any potential errors? And, have you submitted this to twinkle/made a pull request/what's the status of getting this integrated? --DannyS712 (talk) 09:18, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    To be clear, it's a module for requesting oversight. I've updated the Git version so that this is hidden from oversighters, but I've left this out on-wiki as it'd hinder oversighters from testing it for reviewing the PR.
    Doc created. Twinkle PR is at SD0001 (talk) 17:18, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: Thanks for the explanation. I installed it, but can't seem to find the portlet in the TW menu... --DannyS712 (talk) 19:39, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: Figure out the problem. At
    Twinkle.os = function twinkleos() {
    There is an error:
    Uncaught ReferenceError: Twinkle is not defined

    Oh, I updated the script yesterday but forgot to add the initialisation line! Should be fixed now. SD0001 (talk) 06:48, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: It worked. Also, thanks for the "hit cancel to email yourself" thing. I'll be sure to include it, and I hope it gets added to TW --DannyS712 (talk) 07:11, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: Actually, given how much is already in this issue, I'm going to hold off until its fully incorporated into twinkle, or just list it next month. Is that okay? --DannyS712 (talk) 06:13, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
    @SD0001: 2 questions - when will it be incorporated into twinkle, and any progress on the doc for parseTemplate? --DannyS712 (talk) 18:25, 23 February 2019 (UTC)


I think it would be helpful if people who submit scripts for inclusion provide a short description of what the script does. — pythoncoder  (talk | contribs) 02:52, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

@Pythoncoder: No far, I've just been finding the new scripts on my own (mostly). Why? Do you want explanations within the newsletter? --DannyS712 (talk) 03:01, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
DannyS712—Actually, I just remembered WP:US/L is on my watchlist, so if I want explanations I can go there. — pythoncoder  (talk | contribs) 03:08, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
@Pythoncoder: Yeah, that's where I've been getting a lot of them --DannyS712 (talk) 03:17, 30 January 2019 (UTC)


Hello, Is there a template version of this newsletter (like signpost have)? If not please consider creating it. Also it would be nice if there is a separate section for scripts for other wiki's or for xwiki work. Thanks for newsletter! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:52, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

@1997kB: sure, I'll make a template, but it'll just transclude the current version (in the same format and layout). As for the other wikis or xwiki scripts, I haven't had any to include yet, but when I do I'll add it. --DannyS712 (talk) 15:58, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: See Wikipedia:Scripts++/current --DannyS712 (talk) 16:00, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
DannyS712, Thanks I'm fine with current version. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:17, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
