[Epic] Template wizard for WikiEditor
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

This is the Epic ticket for Infobox wizard, the #5 wish in the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey.

The purpose of this wish is to make it easier to use infobox templates in article pages, without copy-pasting from other articles, which could lead to mistakes spreading across multiple pages. The requested solution is to have a search function available from the edit window which would allow users to search for and insert infobox templates.

Assigning to @Niharika, who will be running as PM on this project for the first iteration: building a bare-bones gadget.

Once we have a functional gadget, we will decide where to take this next: making it a default-on gadget, turning this into an extension, or something else.

Here's the user script prototype:

mw.loader.load( 'https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Samwilson/TemplateWizard.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript' );

@Niharika Do you have plan for beta (e.g. which wikis will participate)?

@Niharika Do you have plan for beta (e.g. which wikis will participate)?

@Bencemac The wizard is ready and I asked users on the project talk page if there's interest in being early adopters. I didn't get much of a response so I have created T205290: Convert TemplateWizard into a beta feature instead. It will go out on all wikis as a beta feature and then be eventually converted to a regular tool on all wikis. Does that seem like a good idea?

Sorry, I missed that. I think that a global beta is the best way to test it; personally, I use everywhere every beta gadgets I can and I believe that others will want to use it e.g. on Commons and enwiki as well. I am looking forward to test it. :)
