Central Global Repository for Templates, Lua modules, and Gadgets

We could use a single location where to keep templates, Lua modules, and Gadgets that are used on all the wikipedia projects. Just like images from commons can be used on other projects, code from such site would be visible to all the projects. The current system of 100's of out of sync copies of the same templates or Lua modules occasionally synchronized with the original is very hard to maintain. --Jarekt (talk) 20:06, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

  38.   Oppose for cultural reasons: I fear that this repository would start, exist and end on the basis and with the structure of one specific, big edition, with a lot of bot imports. The template problem needs a solution based on consensus, with explanations of how where when and why, not a technical superstructure. → «« Man77 »» [de] 18:12, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

  59.   Support with the caveat that there needs to be some tolerance of templates/etc. that are designed to work on a specific wiki. Making templates/etc. that work on all wikis sounds enticing, but I imagine there will be many cases where such animals will become bloaty and/or difficult to use. Also, multilingual documentation would have to be provided for. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 13:44, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

  84.   Neutral --Templates are not "Just like images from commons". For example, many/most templates display text and are complex already; adding further code to display the text appropriate to the language (de=Yahre, en=Year...) would make them virtually unmaintainable. Also, it's not unusual (on en wp) to see cases where the functionality and the documentation of a template aren't in synch - how much worse would this be if changing one template meant that documentation in 100 languages then needed to be changed. There may be solutions to these problems, but these sort of things should be carefully considered before making major changes. DexDor (talk) 19:32, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Inserting templates (tables) in PDF and Books

Since... well, don't know since when, books and PDFs are not rendering information inside templates. As lots of information is inside templates (also happens with tables) all of this is not rendered when you download the file in PDF. -Theklan (talk) 22:18, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

A powerful, handy TemplateTiger

Currently, TemplateTiger feeds on dumps and is very unhandy, if you are dealing with high-use templates. Therefore please, oh WMF, please provide a tiger which prowls through templates live and which can be piloted as easy as catscan (when it's available). → «« Man77 »» [de] 18:40, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
