This Might Be A Wiki:Lua Conversion

From This Might Be A Wiki

MediaWiki 1.21 has beta support for a language called Lua. By installing the Scribunto extension, TMBW.Net will be able to replace parserfunctions calls with custom Lua code. Lua is reportedly faster, and should cut down on CPU utilization. In addition, it is more flexible than the current parserfunctions that we utilize.

The following templates should be investigated and converted into Lua modules, once we are on 1.21:

Template Complexity
Usage Notes
Template:AlbumCover 7 Medium/High Called by Discography hovers
Template:Album Info 10 High Used on Album pages. There are also sub-templates.
Template:Artist 3 High Used on Lyrics and Guitar Tabs
Template:Chronology Row 4 High Used on Chronology pages.
Template:Credits 4 Medium Used on Credits pages
