Vad är SWViewer?

SWViewer is a user-friendly web application intended for dealing with vandalism or other unconstructive edits on Wikimedia projects, written in JavaScript and PHP. Anyone with rollback permission can use SWViewer.

SWViewer is able to load and review edits made to Wikipedia in real-time, helps users identify unconstructive edits, and allows them to be reverted quickly. Various mechanisms are used to draw conclusions to whether an edit is constructive or not. It uses a semi-distributed model where edits are retrieved using a "provider", pre-parsed and analysed.

Hur fungerar det?

SWViewer is connected to various Wikimedia projects through a network API and retrieves a list of edits that are made to a wiki in real-time. SWViewer evaluates these edits and moves them to a queue from which the user can open them. If an edit contains problems, the user can easily revert it, usually with a shortcut key such as R or Y.

What are the system requirements for using SWViewer?

SWViewer lives on Toolforge, which means no complicated installation and setup. All you need is active internet connection and a browser and you are ready to patrol.

  • Question: I do not want to see edit from xyzwiki, what should I do? OR There are some wiki in Custom wikis and I can't remove them.
Answer: Click "Queue settings" and add the wiki in "Wiki whitelist" and save. Don't worry if it's still in "Custom wiki" because Wiki whitelist will override it. Users who have certain global rights can remove the wiki from Custom wiki (if they have any), otherwise they will have to follow the same as above.
