Certainly, good sir! I'll take a look at it maybe this evening or so.

 

I'm currently working on another thing for the wiki, so I want to finish
that first, preferably. ;)

Betreff: DOM API docs move script

 

We need someone to build and execute a script that will move the DOM API
pages into their proper organization.

 

Lemme splain [1]:

 

The good news is that most of the 1,129 pages in the dom namespace already
have an attribute that describes their preferred location, and this could be
used in a script to move them to that location. The attribute is the Applies
to field, which is a parameter of the API_Object_Method, and
API_Object_Property templates. The value is consistently the object to which
the method or property belongs. We want methods and properties under their
objects (i.e. dom/Element/error). 

 

The bad news is that we also need to update the pages that link to these
pages with the new location in the link since we want to avoid creating a
huge pile of redirects. So the script/bot would need to update those pages
that link to dom pages.

 

We need some sort of bot/script that performs these tasks. I've scoped and
outlined the work involved in WPD:Projects/DOM_API_docs [2]. The pseudocode
for the script is there, too.

 

frozenice: would you be available to whip up a script to accomplish this?
