📚 node [[wikilink]]


  • A wikilink looks like this: [[wikilink]]. They are text surrounded by two square brackets.
  • Wikilinks come, wait for it, from [[wiki]]s :) But they need not be limited only to things we usually think of as wikis.
    • You could use [[wikilinks everywhere]].
    • You can think of the Agora as a sort of distributed wiki, although users in this particular kind of wiki volunteer individual contributions instead of editing common pages (for now).
  • Wikilinks are the heart of this [[agora]].
  • [[pull]] [[wikilinks]] [[wikilinks everywhere]]

Feel free to use [[[[backlinks]]]], [[wikilinks]], [[edges]], [[multilinks]], or [[whatever the fuck you want to call it]] anywhere when talking to me in reference to something on the [[anagora]] or otherwise, my browser will resolve wikilinks in the default order, aside from duckduckgo as the 3rd step for unprefixed.

What?! [[Wikilinks Everywhere]], enjoy 🥰!


  • im also tempted to rebrand wikilinks
    • it's kinda a weird word
    • it's not the selling point for people to join the [[agora]] I thought it was going to be
  • wikilinks are cool, I just feel like they need a cooler name
  • potential alternative names
    • netlinks

Wikilinks everywhere is a chrome extension that brings [[wikilinks]], and through it the [[internet]], to life. It can be installed on a large number of browsers and services, and will intelligently determine where [[broken]] wikilinks should go to based on your settings.


You can order or disable any of these sources at will. When a wikilink (regardless of if it is properly linked already) is detected the extension will go through these sources in that order you provided. The default order is explained below.



  • Error codes:
    • Comma separated HTTP status codes
    • Supports nxx
    • Default: 4xx, 5xx

Source specific

  • Ignore errors
    • Checkbox
    • Should error cases be ignored?
    • Default: Unchecked

Actual sources

Note: The last source is the catchall, no matter what it will ignore errors and faithfully complete the link. This means do nothing has importance. Don't remove or reorder


If a existing link is already present do nothing

Note: the only difference between the existing source and others is it changes nothing in the browser. By default, if the existing link resolves to global.error, it will move on to the sources below and consider replacing it with them

Note: this might have made no sense. Don't mess with it, probably, it exists for a reason


Things like WP:link for wikipedia, or AG:link for [[anagora]], the schema looks like PREFIX:page.


  • Prefixes
    • A table of prefixes and the corresponding url
      • use {page} to have the provided back link, so with the WP prefix the url would be wikipedia.org/wiki/{page}/


The user's [[IWLEP]] rules. See the IWLEP page for that config, but it is it looks a lot like your config, instead made by the author of the backlink. Don't worry, it can't be faked *unless the user gets hacked but lots worse things could happen.


Iterates through all the listed urls in your order until one does not error, or all error.

{page} is the value between the brackets



What does it say on the tin?



We use an extraordinarily large amount of bandwidth, and there is not much that we can do. That being said, the whole web is obese so I highly doubt we end up using more than 0.2 of the bandwidth of a standard blog (~1Kb a page so ~15kb a wikilink so ~150kb a page). Below is what we tried

✔️ Request methods

There is no STATUS request so we had to make due with HEAD. This will only fetch the part of the website that has the page name and useful information. It does not get the page contents, saving bucket loads of bandwidth.

👷‍♀️ Local catch

Once implemented we will store the last 1000 pages we checked, so if a wikilink is frequencintly used it will only be loaded once

❌ Catch server

This means storing the status code of every website we checked. I don't really like the idea of storing personal information like that.

The plan is to get in at least two pomodoros in this to advance it somehow in the direction of a prototype. Will try to build on [[agora ext]].
