We will continue to use the direct links for now,
until anchors are
Fabrice, I don't think direct anchors to graphs are a feature we've heard
requested until now. You should talk to Diederik so we can find out how
best to serve that. I would think a page that lists all the graphs for
each tab would be a possible solution that *has* been requested and we are
planning on doing.
Out of curiosity, how hard would it be for me to
create a special page
that shows the same daily notifications graph from the English, Dutch,
French, Portuguese and Spanish Wikipedias, for comparison purposes?
Is this something that could be done by embedding each of these graphs in
a wiki or HTML page? Could I do this myself with just a few lines of code?
or would this require someone with more technical expertise?
We are working on embedding graphs into MediaWiki, and it is possible to
embed them into an HTML page. If you'd like to use the current limn
servers, what you're asking is as simple as making a new dashboard. And
that's pretty easy assuming you already have the graphs. A dashboard
comparing the two graphs you listed above would look like this:
"headline": "Comparisons Across Projects",
Save that json into a file called comparison.json and push it to the
repository that serves your limn graphs. Then you have to pull from
the server to get the updates. That definitely requires technical
expertise, but maybe it'll start the conversation on building a UI
around this. Actually, doing the above in a UI seems pretty easy :)
