Wikipedia:User scripts/List

List of user scripts
User scripts are powerful customisations, authored by the community, that allow registered Wikipedians to change Wikipedia's interface beyond the options available in preferences. This page provides a list of available scripts and instructions on installing them. User scripts are written in JavaScript.
  • Click here to skip directly to the script list.
  • Many of the most popular scripts become gadgets, and are subsequently removed from this page. You can enable them via Preferences – Gadgets. It is recommended that you check there first for any tool you might be looking for, since gadgets have been widely tested and proven useful and reliable.
  • Most scripts are designed and tested primarily with the Vector skin, Wikipedia's current default.


How to install user scripts:

  1. Check the checkbox at Preferences → Gadgets → Advanced → check Install scripts without having to manually edit JavaScript files (documentation) and click Save.
  2. Come back to this page.
  3. Click "Install" after each script name to install the script. Some scripts may require additional steps, so be sure to visit the documentation if any.

Alternatively, you may use this link to temporarily view this page with script-installer enabled.
