(Redirected from Wiktionary:AWB)

Overview: AutoWikiBrowser (also AWB) is a semi-automated MediaWiki editor that simplifies and speeds up tedious repetitive tasks. One of its functions is that of a browser that automatically opens up a new page when the last page is saved. It can be enabled to suggest some changes—typically formatting—that are generally meant to be incidental to the main change. Another thing it can do is find all entries that contain a string or a pattern of regular expression.

Setting AutoWikiBrowser for Wiktionary can be done in the menu Options → Preferences …, in the tab Site, by setting the field Project to “wiktionary”.

To use AutoWikiBrowser, you must request an admin to add you to Wiktionary:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPageJSON, for instance by posting in the Beer Parlour.

If you don't have Windows or don't want to install a program, you can use JavaScript Wiki Browser (JWB), which requires the same permissions as AWB.
