Rewrite book2scroll tool and deploy on toolforge
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Problem

Currently, there are many issues in https://book2scroll.toolforge.org/

  • Not working for (Bengali and தமிழ்), which this tool support
  • Not supporting other Indic languages
  • Currently emitting SyntaxError (T267488)
  • Not actively maintaining by author

Solution

The codebase of the current tool is very old. (some files have no edit since 2013). To counter these problems, it is a good way to rewrite this tool on top of the current tool. The new tool will be based on the Flask framework instead of PHP.

Wikisource community wants this tool very much. It has been nominated much times on Community Wishlist.
