Automatic process for data collection and visualisation
Open, MediumPublic


Across different projects such as ULS-CompactLinks or ContentTranslation, we have queries defined to track relevant information such as the number of clicks on interlanguage links or the suggestins accepted.

Currently the results of these queries are processed manually, which leads to information being outdated, manual effort, unclarity of interpretation and making information hard to find.

This ticket proposes to:

  • Keep information in a Github repository.
  • Make query scripts to output the data in to a tabular-separated value format.
  • Include a Jupyter file that explaind and visualises the data.
  • Provide a script to launch the query, updates the results and submit the changes to the Github repo

A good example of a similar process is this one.

Measurements to include:

  • Clicks on interlanguage links
  • Accepted suggestions for translation
  • Use of MT in translations

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)
