WikiMooTools is an implementation of MooTools extended with wiki-specific functions. MooTools is a compact object-oriented JavaScript framework that simplifies cross-browser scripting.

Library functionsEdit

MooTools modulesEdit

This implementation includes the MooTools 1.2.4 modules that are most useful for wikis. Click the linked module names for their documentation.

Get edit token (wmt_token)Edit

Retrieves an edit token for the given session and wiki (required to perform database changes like editing, deletion, protection, emailing, etc). The same token can be reused throughout the session for any task requiring a token, and is valid for both the API and MediaWiki web interface.

syntax
wmt_token(object)
parameters

An object with any of the following properties:

  • onSuccess (function): a function to call on successful completion, passed a string containing the edit token. If omitted, a message is output to the JavaScript console.
  • onFailure (function): a function to call if an error occurs, passed the XmlHttpRequest object. If omitted, a message is output to the JavaScript console.
return value null.
example
wmt_token({
	onSuccess:cTokenSuccess,
	onFailure:cTokenFailure
});
function cTokenSuccess(token) {
	alert('The token is ' + token);
}
function cTokenFailure(xhr) {
	alert('An error occured: ' + xhr.status + ' ' + xhr.statusText);
}
