User:Hogü-456/Inclusion in Wikifunctions
Wikifunctions is a new Wikimedia project currently under development. The goal of this project is the collection of functions implemented in different programming languages. These functions will be used for generating texts for Abstract Wikipedia. The goal of Abstract Wikipedia should give access to abstracts of articles to small language communities. To offer a abstract in a specific language a set of language specific renderers is needed. From my point of view it seems complicated to be able to contribute to Wikifunctions and Abstract Wikipedia at the moment.(written at 18th of November 2022). I see the risk that Wikifunctions will be a small Wikimedia project with only a few contributors that requires a lot of knowledge to be able to contribute to it. This can lead to a feeling excluded. Since autumn 2020 I wrote a program that can convert Spreadsheet functions into source code. It is from my point of view important to support different languages for implementing functions and also different concepts to generate functions. The possibility to contribute to Wikifunctions through Spreadsheet functions is one example for that where I hope that it is possible somewhen in the future. From my point of view it would be great if programming is something that is easier to learn as it is from my point of view on today and that enables a lot of people to contribute to Wikifunctions and Abstract Wikipedia.
