Description of the tool/project
The extension adds a WikiEditor gadget to allow users to populate templates more easily using a dialog. This functionality is already present in VE and 2017 Wikitext editor but this project is aimed at the 2006 wikitext editor.
Description of how the tool will be used at WMF
The extension will be deployed on all Wikimedia wikis. The template information for the templates will come from TemplateData. In cases where there is no TemplateData, the extension attempts to "guess" template parameters by parsing the template text.
Has this project been reviewed before?
