Description Helder 2013-09-27 11:03:01 UTC
It should be possible to make tests at [[Special:ExpandTemplates]] without reloading the whole page after every small change in the code.

There is already an API for that, except for the option "Suppress <nowiki> tags in result", it seems:

What on earth is "Suppress <nowiki> tags in result" for exactly, anyway?
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2013-09-27 15:52:52 UTC
Ok, so this option appears to have just come out of nowhere in 2009; there's no bugzilla reference or explanation for the feature on the commit: <>

I'm not sure it's useful or needs to be kept, but if it is desirable, it appears to be implemented as a post-processing regular expression and could be trivially done in JavaScript along with an AJAX load from the API.

special page was moved to core
