Narayam on Translatewiki

Few days before I added Naryam, an extension that helps to add various input methods to Mediawiki installations, to Mediawiki subversion repository. Then Roan Kattouw rewrote most of its code to use new ResourceLoader introduced to Mediawiki and jQuery. Also Roan made it to load input methods conditionally based on content language and current user p referenced language. So now it has better code structure and efficient working.

Then Gerard Meijssen proposed it to have at translatewiki. Once the translatewiki team found the extension working, they adopted it for that wiki. Initially Narayam supported Malayalam transliteration and InScript, Bengali Avro, Bengali InScript, Bengali National Keyboard, Tamil99, Tamil transliteration and Sanskrit transliteration schemes. Yesterday I added Hindi InScript, Sanskrit InScript. Kannada transliteration and InScript schemes also have been added now. So these all schemes or input methods are available on transltewiki now.

Users who has set one these languages in their preference will get input methods enabled for that particular language. Summary of currently supports schemes are give below:

  • Bengali Avro
  • Bengali InScript
  • Bengali National Keyabord
  • Hindi InScript
  • Kannada transliteration
  • Kannada InScript
  • Malayalam transliteration
  • Malayalam InScript
  • Sanskrit transliteration
  • Sanskrit InScript
  • Tamil transliteration
  • Tami99

Developments are going on to include Hindi transliteration, Oriya transliteration and InScript, Sinhala transliteration (Singlish).

I hope this will help translatewiki to have more translators and translations to come.
