Install UnsafeScripts for this script to work!

FANDOM has disabled User Scripts from running on MediaWiki and User namespace pages that end with a '.JS' file extension. This severely reduces the effectiveness of this script. It still works on CSS pages, as well as JS pages that are not MediaWiki:Common.js or User:Name/wikia.js and so on but that's it.

By default, pressing the tab key changes focus from the textarea. This scripts makes the tab key produce a tab character instead, which might be necessary for some coders who prefer indenting by tabs. The script runs only on pages ending with .js or .css.


In order to use this, put it in your w:Special:MyPage/global.js or wiki's Common.js. A helpful guide can be found here. Follow the following instructions:


Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Global Personal Site-wide
w:Special:Mypage/global.js Special:Mypage/common.js MediaWiki:Common.js
importScriptPage('MediaWiki:TabKeyInserter/code.js', 'dev');
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.
