Methods

  • Uses SemperBlotto's modification of the "pagefromfile.py" python script (part of "pywikipediabot" package) to load inflected forms from a text file that has been prepared offline (semi-automatically).
  • Pages that already exist are not changed by this process, if they already have a Latin section. Otherwise, a Latin section is added at the end and the autoformat bot is asked to cleanup.
  • The bot always runs under the direct control of User:EncycloPetey.

Verbs and other forms

  • Imperatives, infinitives, and future participles are not currently added as part of this process.
  • Code is at User:FitBot/forms
  • The text file consists of a section for each word to be loaded in a format typified by the following.
{{-start-}}
<<< audivi >>> (page name)
==Latin==
===Verb===
{{la-verb-form|audīvī}}
# {{conjugation of|[[audio#Latin|audiō]]||1|s|perf|act|ind|lang=la}}
{{-stop-}}
