    A few of you might have noticed that the functions and hooks on the wiki hadn't been updated for the past couple of months. This is because the wiki generator I had broke. Also, php updated which broke it some more.

    I had grown sick of that wiki generator, because:
    • I had to reboot in Linux to generate the wiki. I generally develop on Windows
    • The generator broke with every PHP update. PHP is a terrible language and has terrible compatibility management
    • It's not even being maintained anymore. The backend of the wiki updated and I could not update my wikibot to get it to work.
    I'm now using the official wikibot mechanism called pywikibot. It's cross platform, slightly faster and I can at least be reasonably sure that it will remain up to date. Useful, yes.

    Biggest changes for you
    I'm sure you don't give a rat's ass about my wikibot adventures. That's alright, here's something you do care about:

    All previous links to functions and hooks will now lead to a deleted page

    That's because all page names were lowercase. You couldn't derive the casing from the URL. That's really annoying for coders. So I deleted all those pages and created the properly cased counterparts using my new bot.

    Why couldn't you move the pages instead?
    because effort.

    That explains why the stub I added didn't seem to show up. I would've mentioned it but I thought maybe it was updated infrequently or something.
