Wiki Monkey is a MediaWiki-compatible bot and editor assistant that can be used directly within wiki pages in the browser. Wiki Monkey is run as a Scriptish script for Firefox and can be easily extended through the creation of plugins, exploiting its high-level API.

The project is currently focused on ArchWiki, and as such most plugins address ArchWiki-specific problems.


Make sure you have installed Scriptish for Firefox.

Note: Chrome/Chromium users can try Tampermonkey, but Wiki Monkey is not tested against it and does not currently support it.

Now just click on the link of one of the following Wiki Monkey configurations and Firefox should ask you to install it:

  • Editor: provides manual-editing aid functions in editor pages, like automatic style fixes
  • Patrol: Editor + quick-report functions in diff pages
  • Bot: Patrol + automatic operations on list pages

Otherwise you can create your own configuration.

Warning: Although it is possible to keep multiple configurations of Wiki Monkey installed together, make sure to enable only one at a time.

Automatic updates

If you want to enable automatic updates, open Firefox's Add-ons Manager (Tools -> Add-ons), select User Scripts, right-click on Wiki Monkey and choose Show More Information, then set Automatic Updates to On.
