Localized Gadget should port on Every Indic Wiki

Harsh Kothari
Hi All

If someone localize the Gadget from English Wikipedia and works fine on one Indic wikipedia should port in every Indic Wikipedia. So that every Indic wiki can use that particular feature. That helps a lot to Editors on Indic Wiki.

Porting Gadget will take 2 to 5 minutes for admins.

Thanks
Harsh

Well, theoretically. Reality proves that it may take much, much more
than 5 minutes.

Hi Amir

Yeah :)

But I will Explain all the steps in one mail for admins. 

They have to copy paste the code and follow the steps. Just easy. You already know more then me on that :) 

But this thing will help to grow editing experience of editors.

Thanks

Very often gadgets are not just JavaScript pages. They very often
depend on other templates and styles that exist in a wiki, and very
often reflect a policy or a common practice that is specific to a
given wiki, that does not necessarily fit another. For example, the
Twinkle gadget has useful tools for the English Wikipedia, but it is
bound very tightly to English Wikipedia's deletion policies, warning
templates, etc. It may, theoretically, be adapted to other projects,
but the workflows may be very different, so it won't be enough to just
copy the JavaScript.

That's the kind of thing that Priyanka Nag is working on in the OPW
program, and I'm sure that she'll have a lot more to tell.

Hi Amir 

You are right about heavy template based gadgets. Twinkle can't adopt directly on any wiki. 

But see Reference Tooltips , Popups , Hotcat will work on every wikis. They are very useful Gadgets.

So I am referring that type of low weight useful gadgets :) 

Thanks
Harsh

You don't exactly need to be an admin to port gadgets.
Bring it up to Translatewiki.net and trust me, the community will be more than happy to bring it out ion every possible language out there.
