Automatic, Supervised, or Manual: Automatic
Programming language(s): PHP
Source code available: Github
Function overview: Updating popular pages reports for wikiprojects
Links to relevant discussions (where appropriate): This bot is duplicating the task Mr.Z-bot used to perform.
Edit period(s): Monthly.
Estimated number of pages affected: About 600
Exclusion compliant (Yes/No): Yes
Already has a bot flag (Yes/No): Yes
Function details: The bot will update popular pages reports for wikiprojects on wiki. An example report can be seen here: User:NiharikaKohli/Test_popular_pages​. This task was performed by Mr.Z-bot earlier (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Athletics/Popular pages) but that tool is no longer maintained. The bot will make use of the newly-rolled out pageviews API to determine page views for a given article. It will work off of an on-wiki config page which will be maintained by the community. A demo config page can be seen here: User:NKohli (WMF)/Test config. The number of records displayed on the report page will depend on the config.
Approved for trial (50 edits). Please provide a link to the relevant contributions and/or diffs when the trial is complete.xaosflux Talk 23:36, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
