Cross-Wiki Tools is a movement strategy initiative from the recommendation Improve User Experience. This initiative was one of the priorities (from the initiative cluster B) selected for global implementation during the Movement Strategy Transition events. It was also widely-prioritized by local communities and affiliates, especially emerging ones.
Content from the recommendation:
Tools to connect cross-project and cross-language functionalities to provide an enhanced experience of the knowledge contained in the Wikimedia ecosystem for a particular interest, informational need, or inquiry.
- Clear pathways for advancing new wiki proposals (including new language versions) and for reusing community-developed software features on them.
- Developer tooling and high-quality documentation to allow technical contributors to create and maintain tools with usability and efficiency.
Below are some of the previous discussions around this initiative:
There is an open global templates proposal. The goal is to "allow making some templates and modules globally", which will be "editable as wiki pages", "translatable" and will be managed with "policies about maintenance, sharing, protection, and deletion". There is an extended essay about this proposal and its relationship with Movement Strategy.
