Site integration

These scripts are for interfacing with other sites.

Site-wide only

Development tools

These tools help in development of other scripts.

Editing tools

These should only be installed for individual users:

  • AntiUnicruft — Automatically repairs JavaScript and CSS pages that contain magic invisible bugs.
  • APICall — Gives you better access to API requests.

Wikia libraries

Libraries that were expressly written for Wikia. They are wiki-wide only:

  • Preferences — makes your addon's preferences editable through a web interface.
  • Verbatim — provides verbatim'ed code with an alternative to $(document).ready().
  • wikiMod — Javascript library for extending both the main wiki and the mobile wiki.

Dependencies

These provide common pre-built components for other scripts. They are either wiki-wide or user-level depending on what uses them. If a wiki-wide script uses them, then they are installed wiki-wide. If they're only used by user scripts, they are user installed:

  • Loadables — Provides JavaScript libraries.
  • ShareMenu — Provides a menu for other scripts to put buttons, such as share buttons.

Inadvisable installations

Out of date

These scripts are either broken and have been replaced with better ones or are just no longer necessary as the problem they solved no longer exists.

  • CollapsibleInfobox — For easily collapsing sections of {{infobox (collapsible)}}. (Deprecated: Use the mw-collapsible class instead.)
  • DISPLAYTITLE — Template that allows users to change the title displayed at the top of any page. The built-in DISPLAYTITLE magic word can now allow any title to be used, so JS is no longer needed.
  • EditIntroButton2 — Basically identical to EditIntroButton, except that it doesn't work in Oasis. Use the other script instead.
  • MiniComplete — Adds autocomplete functionality to various textareas. As of 30 September, 2015, this is available in the Wikia software by default.
  • OasisToolbarButtons — Adds action buttons (like "edit" or "move") to Oasis' bottom toolbar.
  • OasisWideMode — Makes every page wider.
  • OrkutShare — Provides a share button for Orkut. Discontinued due to Orkut being shut down.
  • Purgetab — Adds a purge tab to monobook. Use PurgeButton or DisplayClock/DisplayTimer instead.
  • SearchButtonV2 or SearchGoButton — Adds a 'go' button to the Oasis searchbox. Doesn't work on the new global header, which the search box was moved to.
  • ShowHide — Scripts for collapsible tables and divs. MediaWiki 1.19 provides the built-in mw-collapsible which makes this unnecessary unless you already have large numbers of pages that depend on this.
  • TwittWidget — Allows user to view their Twitter tweets on their user pages.
  • UserBadges — Allows you to add, remove, and modify user tags (replaced with UserTags)
  • Voice Dictation — Adds vocal dictation to simple text boxes in wikis.

Unmaintained

  • ChatSideRail — Adds a useful sidebar to the left of the chat. (never finished)
  • Iconi — Adds icons. (never finished)
  • Schema — Makes it easier to edit Schema instances. (relied on a feature no longer usable)

Beta scripts
