Scope documentation misstates purpose of wbformatentities module
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

UI focused modules

The existing modules serve mainly as part of the Wikibase UI editing and display workflow and are not deemed to be used much externally.

  • wbformatentities
  • wbformatvalue
  • wbparsevalue

It’s true that wbformatvalue and wbparsevalue are used by the Wikibase UI, but that’s not the case for wbformatentities. That module is not called within Wikibase at all; it was expressly added for use by third-party code (T207484: API to efficiently format large numbers of entity IDs).
