Twinkle Build Status

Twinkle is a JavaScript application that gives Miraheze Editors a quick way of performing common maintenance tasks, such as nominating pages for deletion and cleaning up vandalism.

See Wikipedia:Twinkle on the English Wikipedia for more information.

AzaToth is the original author and maintainer of the tool, as well as the morebits.js library gadget, which forms the basis for many Wikipedia scripts and editing tools in addition to Twinkle.

Layout of this repository

  • morebits.js: The central library used by Twinkle and many other scripts. Contains code to interact with the MediaWiki API, display forms and dialogs, generate status logs, and do various other useful things. The vast majority of code in here is not Twinkle-specific.
  • twinkle.js: General Twinkle-specific code, mostly related to preferences and exposing Twinkle in the UI. Significantly, it contains the default set of preferences of Twinkle.
  • modules: Contains the individual Twinkle modules. Descriptions for these can be found in header comments or in the Twinkle documentation. The module twinkleconfig.js powers the Twinkle preferences panel.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
