I've developed a further proof of concept in vb.net 2.0 called "AutoWikiCite". I've started a thread at Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Vpt#AutoWikiCite, but it hasn't gotten any response. The program can be downloaded at sourceforge and requires Windows XP or higher with .net 2.0. It's "portable" in that you simply unzip the file and run.
It currently can handle only several major news sites...but I plan to add a "library xml" file so that it could handle several thousand.
Let me know what you think.
I'm stuck on a mac, but I'm really excited that you did this. You should post something on the village pump here too. Try to build some interest in it. If there were a web version, I bet it would really take off. Randomran 02:54, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
I'm working on a web version & a java version as well. The core of the program will be an xml file with a list of the top 1000 or 2000 sites and "directions" for the program on how to extract data on those sites.
On wikipedia...there is something similar being done at Wikipedia:User:Rjwilmsi/CiteCompletion...though it hasn't gotten very far yet.
That's really exciting. Thanks again for doing this?
Have you seen this:
It's kind of overkill for Wikipedia purposes. But it might offer some inspiration for where this can go in the long run. Who knows, maybe there's a way to adapt it for Wikipedia. A partnership maybe?
