Mvolz added a comment to T180848: Citoid depends on newer version of OOUI that MediaWiki 1.29 contains.

Looks like TabPanelLayout was first included in OOUI 0.21.3 (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/337220/), whereas MediaWiki 1.29 shipped with 0.21.1. Whereas the first version of Citoid to use it was before the 1.29 cut (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/354096/).

Mvolz added a comment to T180408: Allow dates from crossRef.

So the issue here is we aren't using dates from crossRef at all. This was because crossRef dates from this particular API have only the year, so for the time being we were trying to get the date from other sources. If the date *used* to be in those publications, they could indicate a broken translator, but broadly speaking this is also an issue.

Mvolz added a comment to T179123: Citoid plugin for Wikipedia does not identify raw human-readable citations copy-pasted from a bibliography in a PDF.

Thanks Mvolz. I agree that parsing a formatted citation into a citation template is complicated, but I think there may already be "off the shelf" solutions for this (Zotero?). And obviously, this work flow works and could be automated (with scraping, I guess): (1) past formatted citation in Google Scholar; (2) click "cite" button and choose bibtex formatting; (3) convert citation in bibtex format to citation in wiki format.

Mvolz added a comment to T168937: Help the community configure citoid on gdwiki.

The templates are set up so that there is a main author ("last", "first") a field for "other author" (ùghdar_eile), and a field to be used when there are multiple "other authors" (ùghdaran_eile). Both of those are in the data maps, but might not be obvious becuase they don't follow the "last", "first" format. Would that need to be changed?

I'll see what I can do about getting the MediaWiki message sorted.

Hi, all!!

I am working on microtask 1 and have made some progress.
I made a page in HTML, CSS, Bootstrap and Jquery that takes user-name.
Now I am trying to display the result using this API-
userContributionApi
but I am getting this error when I am hitting the API using AJAX request -

No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'null' is therefore not allowed access.

The API returns correct data when requested using Chrome directly or using Postman.

Also, I have added my source code here-

This is a dupe, but it's an issue with service. <> are stripped for
security reasons.

Mvolz added a comment to T174528: Tool for displaying a user contribution summary.

i.e. found this little script that sort of does that already (with very basic info):

Might it be better to either add to one of these existing tools?
https://tools.wmflabs.org/xtools-ec/ could easily be extended to do something like that, it already has yearly breakdowns, a more detailed breakdown shouldn't be much additional work.

I don't think so, the UI expectations are very different. Power users don't care about the design but want high information density and integration with other power tools; casual users want a nice UI with limited amount of information and lots of explanatory text.
Also this is an Outreachy project and I am not sure I'd want to limit it with candidates who choose PHP as the backend language.
(Some sort of information sharing between the various tools would certainly make sense. But that can be done with an API or shared library as well.)

Mvolz added a comment to T144155: Create dedicated input methods for "boolean" transclusion parameters.

Is possible to define some aliases on each wiki?

If so Templates maintainers will be able to implement the boolean option properly.

The most important thing is to have a nice interface for final users.

Is there any documentation somewhere?

There's the spec here: https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-TemplateData/blob/master/Specification.md

Not sure if that's what you were after.

I see the boolean option on 3.4 Type section, but the implementation is not really easy to use. I imagine it as a Yes/No option displayed to the user instead of just a field.
