Add TemplateData to a template on a non-English wikipedia that doesn't have any (cloneable)
Closed, DeclinedPublic


To complete this task, you need to know what a template is, what TemplateData is and where TemplateData is placed. For more information, see:

See also:

Add TemplateData to a template in this list. These data must go to the appropriate place in its documentation page ({template_name}}/doc).

You can choose to add templatedata by writing the raw JSON, or by adding it by using the GUI ("Manage Template Data" button above the editing field). However, if you choose to write the raw JSON, you should verify it is correct by attempting to load it into the editor using the Manage Template Data button.

Communication about the work being done should go on the GCI task page's comment section. You should also pick a template by tagging yourself next to the task here. Example:

Non-English language templates available to be claimed:



bahasa Indonesia (must create a /doc subpage):


If you added the template data to a /doc subpage, it is often necessary to do a "null edit" on the template page for the changes to go live. See T52372#544480 .

Once you have saved the new templatedata, you should edit your userpage using Visual Editor, and test inserting the template, and see the template parameters listed.

Students are required to read first.

When you make edits on Wikipedia as a part of GCI, you should link to this task URL in your edit summary so that other Wikipedia editors know that this is part of a GCI task. Example:

You should also place this message in your user profile. declaring that you are participating in GCI.

I am making edits to template data as a participant of [[ mw:Google_Code-in_2017 | Google Code-In 2017 ]] .



Event Timeline

I've added one high priority one, feel free to add more @jayvdb (I will also look for more tomorrow).

Can you publish this one @Aklapper ? Thanks!

@Mvolz: Ahem. Yes, done now. Sorry, missed this one!

Unfortunately I have reached the point where I must do the one I put on myself as it's a blocker for T114515. I can't increment it down in GCI so it'd be great if someone wanted to put at least one other template on the list!

Tagging some people who might have suggestions: @jeblad , @Elitre, @Josve05a

Mvolz updated the task description. (Show Details)

I put an appeal on Twitter and for the time being.

@Stryn says, "Maybe
It's completely without templatedata yet.
Templatedata should be added to Malline:Listing/ohje." (It should be noted that the visual editor is probably still not live on that wiki yet.)

(For other languages: queries like could be run in case.)

@Shizhao: This task is related to any site - why did you add Chinese-Sites here?

A Chinese site listed as examples does not affect those sites, hence removing.

@Mvolz, I notice you were focusing on the citation templates, which is a great idea, and I added some bahasa ones (and increased the task count). I am sure we can easily find more of those in other languages.

I am surprised to see that some of these templates dont exist in major Wikipedias (or are not linked via wikidata to the English template). Maybe there is another GCI task in there somewhere, but again we'd need to be cautious about not creating a translation task, and also not impinging on communities which may have intentionally veered from the norm.

I'm closing this task in Phabricator as Google-Code-In-2016 is over (and as it's a task that will "never end").

@Mvolz, I just noticed this was at the top of . Do you want to try this one again?

@Beeyan , would you be able to mentor this one with me for the bahasa Indonesia templates? Do you know of better templates ?

@jayvdb the tweet you're referencing is one year old :D but nonetheless, please do go ahead and mentor someone willing to work in this area? TemplateData is an area in which several community members are experts, so I don't think you'll really need other assistance.

@Filip , can you add some Polish templates to the task description?

Thanks for spear-heading this, @jayvdb

Finding the templates to work on is always the tricky thing, maybe we should publicise this on wikitech-l to find more templates in other languages?

@Richard_Nevell_WMUK, @Uchup19, @cahyo.ramadhani, @LLarson any templates on your wiki missing template data that you'd like to add to the list?

Closing this task as it was a placeholder in Phab for Google-Code-in-2017 which is ending these days (no more new tasks can be claimed from now on in GCI 2017).
