List output by fullname (without image) for Special:UnusedImages
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

At the moment, Special:UnusedFiles produces a singular output showing images and either a file name (~25 characters) or partial file names (22 characters followed by an ellipsis), this output unmanipulable, and only apparently accessible via the Special: page.

This means that the files listed on the page can only be managed singularly for any maintenance

It would be useful to be able to generate a list providing full name, and not producing an image. I would see that this is an option that could be selected from the Special: page

able to be accessible through the API

That's already possible: action=query&list=querypage&qppage=Unusedimages

This one task lists several requested features while one task should only list one specific problem to solve. :(

In pywikibbot: python scripts/listpages.py -unusedfiles

able to be accessible through the API

That's already possible: action=query&list=querypage&qppage=Unusedimages

Great. That said, It wasn't mentioned in the API documentation at mediawiki.org, and finding it through the API itself is difficult.

Also knowing that it is "Unusedimages" rather than "UnusedFiles" isn't well documented.
