Maybe add a new line at the bottom of the existing aliases table, with simplified dropdown list (main locales)?

    Improvements:

    • "editable row": make an existing alias editable inline
    • "batch-save": save all new aliases at once (will need probably a "delete row without saving" feature)

    this is awesome! thank you so much. if I think of anything I will talk here or on #mb

    edit: re the "editable row": make an existing alias editable inline part, possible idea of a popup for confirmation/editnote on the "delete" part? (for deleting aliases?) possibly not.

    in the language drop down, please add: Slovakian, Czech, Norwegian(!), Estonian, Vietnamese, Finnish, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Thai I will ask more if needed. (reosarevok might also have input here)

    New beta release:

    • one button for submitting all aliases
    • dropdown adapted to artists/other entities
    • languages added

    so far this is excellent <3 some ideas/suggestions/ idk:

    things:

    • in order for buttons to show up, there must already be atleast one alias already.
    • is it possible to add a Guess Case button? (it shouldn't be too hard as generally all instruments should be lowercase, but for non-instruments this might be difficult unless the code from mb can be used/referred)
    • be able to add more than one row at a time? like a little input field next to the button, to specify a number
    • will using https://paste.ee/p/XG2FR maybe make dates work?

    add languages: hungarian

    @CatCat

    I won't have much free time in the next weeks and I won't have great motivation (since I probably won't use the script myself). I'll try to integrate changes if you submit some

    • in order for buttons to show up, there must already be at least one alias already.

    Can be probably be done easily (create the whole table if required), but it doesn't look like a high priority for me. It looks like it is for you :)

    • is it possible to add a Guess Case button?

    The standard guesscase javascript library is not loaded in this page, that's why I haven't looked at it yet.

    • be able to add more than one row at a time?

    I'll get inspiration from the release editor

    • dates

    possibly, but I imagined that was not a priority for you

    • languages

    Sure. If you need more and I don't have time, you can modify the list defined here

  7. CatQuest, the Endeavouring Cat!

    yes the first is a higher priority for me than the other by far, dates aren't the highest priority, no (they are not that common for instruments)

    thanks for the thing about being able to modify language list! I'll be sure to use that for any new languages, rather than to bug you for it all the time :)
