TempateData: Provide a way to list all documented (and undocumented) templates on a wiki (beyond Special:PagesWithProp/templatedata)
Open, LowestPublic

Description

At the moment I can't see any user-facing way to identify what templates on a project do or not have TD available for them. It would be great to have some mechanism that can do so - otherwise users are hunting blind when it comes to identifying what templates need it.

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to High.
bzimport set Reference to bz50368.

Besides, this could be added to the template's "action=info".

True; rewriting the template header to better reflect. :-)

Are we looking for some new DB report here? Or a labs tool? or...?

Also, how is Special:PagesWithProp/templatedata not good enough?

It can't be used to find pages without this prop, but this is needed to find pages where TemplateData is missing. A special page sorted by transclusion count would be the best solution for this part of the feature request, I think.

On en.wikipedia there is a page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:TemplateData/List where all pages with TemplateData sections are displayed. This is periodically created from a script https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Salix_alba/TDList.js which in turn uses the page with props api call.
