This module implements {{Adjacent stations}}, {{Rail icon}}, {{Rail color box}}, {{Line link}}, {{Station link}} and {{Rail color}}. Please see those templates' pages for documentation on how to use those templates. (Instructions for the convert function of this module are in the {{Adjacent stations}} documentation.)

The aforementioned templates rely on data stored in subpages for this module. For example, {{Rail icon}} generates MTR using মডিউল:পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন/এমটিআর.

It is possible to create and edit data by following existing examples, but having some knowledge of Lua helps prevent mistakes. If you have programmed or used Lua before, you may like to skip the next subsection.

শর্তাবলী[সম্পাদনা]

  • Lua has data types. The ones relevant here are boolean, string, number, and table.
    • A boolean is either true or false.
    • A string is text, stored as a list of characters. While Lua has several ways of indicating strings within code, in the Lua examples here, strings are indicated by enclosing text in double quotes (e.g. "This is a string").
    • A number is a numerical value, like 0.5 or 42.
    • A table is a structure that can contain other objects, including other tables.
      • An empty table looks like {} in the code.
      • Tables have keys and values, which are typically of the structure ["key"] = value; each key–value pair is separated by a comma. All keys used here are strings or numbers.
      • {"text", "more text"} is equivalent to {[1] = "text", [2] = "more text"}.
  • A variable can be defined using local variable_name = "value".
  • Whitespace is any tab, line break or other space. Whitespace doesn't matter in Lua, but all examples here except for those inline with text are neatly indented for readability, with separate table keys on separate lines.
  • A return statement (e.g. return variable_name) causes a function to exit and reports the value of variable_name. The "function" here is the code in the main module calling the subpage, and the variable_name should be the data table.

Basic structure[সম্পাদনা]

Two modules are demonstrated below:

Blank টেমপ্লেট:Syntaxhighlight
Example টেমপ্লেট:Syntaxhighlight

The example module is মডিউল:পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন/Kaohsiung Rapid Transit.

  • The two required table entries are "station format" and "lines". The former is a table with data to form links to station articles, and the latter is a table containing a table for each line.
  • "system title" is the text in the middle cell of the table header row.
  • "station format" defines the default name format for station articles and exceptions. The first variable ("%1 metro station") is the default. Exceptions are listed as key–value pairs (e.g. "Zuoying"–"Zuoying HSR station"), where the key is the input name. The module displays the input name and links to the article with the formatted name, replacing "%1" with the input. Alternatively, the full wikilink and be entered. This can be used to have the display be different from the input.
  • "lines" is where the lines are listed. The names here are used internally and not displayed, so choose a concise one.
  • "line title" is the text displayed in the middle of each row indicating the line; "left terminus" is the default station name for the left side terminus, and "right terminus" is the default station name for the right side terminus.
  • Each "color" entry is the colour of the line.

Below is মডিউল:পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন/Taiwan High Speed Rail: টেমপ্লেট:Syntaxhighlight

  • x (defined in the first line) is a string used for formatting the station name. The variable x is used inside the "station format" table for the three articles where the title ends in "station" instead of "HSR station". This practice is optional but helpful when many articles fit a second pattern.
  • The module recognises a virtual line named ["_default"]. The title and colour of this line is used for all lines unless overridden. Parameters are used in the absence of a specified line= in transclusion.

Hierarchy and list of parameters[সম্পাদনা]

  1. The first layer of the table is data for the entire system, as well as output options.
  2. Under the system table is the list of lines.
  3. The third layer is data for a given line.
  4. Each line can have 'types'. This can be either types of services or branches of the line.
  5. The fifth layer is data for a given type.

If not specified, all keys and values are strings.

Main layer (1)[সম্পাদনা]

Parameter Type Used in {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} Description
["lang"] String হ্যাঁ Values are "en-US" and "en-GB". If not set, "en-GB" is assumed.
["system title"] String হ্যাঁ Text in the middle cell of the header.
["system icon"] String হ্যাঁ Image used in the middle cell of the {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} header and by {{Rail icon}}.
["system icon format"] String না Icon type, used by {{Rail icon}}. If specified and not "image", the value is passed to the function that implements {{Rail color box}}.
["system color"] String না RGB hex triplet (three or six characters, like "BE2D2C" or "039"). Can be called by using only one parameter in {{Rail color}}.
["header stop noun"] String হ্যাঁ The noun after 'preceding' and 'following' in the left and right header cells. Default value is "station".
["name format"] String না CSS for the header of {{Infobox station}} and anything else using the style function with |1=header. Values can be strings or nested tables, with the first level being for the line (whatever's in |style2= of {{Infobox station}}). The second level is currently unused. The first entry in a nested table with no key (i.e. with key 1) is the default.
["header background color"] String না RGB hex triplet for {{Infobox station}} subheaders and anything else using the style function with |1=subheader. By default, it is a light gray. Values can be strings or nested tables, like those for "name format".
["header text color"] String না RGB hex triplet for {{Infobox station}} subheaders and anything else using the style function with |1=subheader. By default, it is calculated based on the header background color. Values can be strings or nested tables, like those for ["name format"].
["station format"] Table or string হ্যাঁ Table containing station format strings. The first entry without a specified key (i.e. with the key being the number 1) is the default, and all other entries must have keys corresponding to the input. Format strings without wikilink brackets are converted to links, with the input (usually the station name) used as the displayed text. Tables can be nested within this table to indicate options based on the line and line type passed to this template.

%1, %2 and %3 can be used in all strings regardless of the level of nesting to be replaced respectively by the station input, the line input (after alias replacement) and the type input (after alias replacement).

["lines"] Table হ্যাঁ Data table containing line tables.
["aliases"] Table হ্যাঁ Table containing aliases (as table keys) for lines (as values). All keys are lowercase, as the input is treated as case-insensitive by being lower-cased.

Station format table (2)[সম্পাদনা]

Parameter Type Used in {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} Description
[1] String হ্যাঁ Default format.
["non-default station name"] String or table হ্যাঁ Format for a non-default station, or line-specific format table.

Line-specific format table (3)[সম্পাদনা]

Parameter Type Used in {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} Description
[1] String হ্যাঁ Default format.
["line name"] String or table হ্যাঁ Format for a non-default station, or type-specific format table.

Type-specific format table (4)[সম্পাদনা]

Parameter Type Used in {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} Description
[1] String হ্যাঁ Default format.
["type name"] String হ্যাঁ Format for a non-default station.

Line table (3)[সম্পাদনা]

A virtual line named ["_default"] can be added to set default values for all lines. Currently, this is available for two parameters.

Parameter Type Used in {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} Description
["title"] String হ্যাঁ The text displayed in the middle cell, typically a link to the line's article. If not specified, then the data in ["_default"] is used (%1 in the default value is replaced by the input after alias replacement).
["short name"] String না Abbreviated line name used by {{Rail color box}}.
["icon"] String না Image used by {{Rail icon}}.
["icon format"] String না Icon type used by {{Rail icon}}. If specified and not "image", the value is passed to the function that implements {{Rail color box}}.
["color"] String হ্যাঁ RGB hex triplet. Lines fall back to the ["_default"] colour (if any) or the system's colour if they themselves do not have one; types fall back to the line's colour (if any), to the ["_default"] colour (if any) or to the system's colour. This colour is used in the second and fourth columns of {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}}, and by {{Rail color box}} and {{Rail icon}} as the emphasised colour. By default, if a type and its line both have a colour, then the line's colour will be treated as the background colour (see next section) for the line name in the middle cell. This can be turned off by setting the type's background colour to "" or "transparent".
["background color"] String হ্যাঁ RGB hex triplet (three or six characters). This colour is optional and is only displayed behind the line name in the middle cell. The module adds transparency so that all text displayed over the background is legible.
["border color"] String না RGB hex triplet used by {{Rail color box}}.
["text color"] String না RGB hex triplet used by {{Rail color box}}.
["left terminus"] String হ্যাঁ The station which is usually the left terminus of the line. If there are multiple stations by default, the value should be a table containing numbered values (e.g. ["left terminus"] = {"Chesham", "Amersham"}). The key ["via"] in that table can be used to append 'via' and the value's station link.
["right terminus"] String হ্যাঁ The station which is usually the right terminus of the line; behaves like ["left terminus"].
["note-mid"] String হ্যাঁ Default small text below line and type names. Overridden by |note-mid= in transclusion.
["circular"] Boolean হ্যাঁ If the value is true then the termini will display without 'toward'/'towards'.
["oneway-left"] Boolean হ্যাঁ If the value is true then 'One-way operation' will display instead of the left terminus.
["oneway-right"] Boolean হ্যাঁ Right counterpart of oneway-left.
["types"] Table হ্যাঁ Table containing the line type tables.

Type table (5)[সম্পাদনা]

Parameter Type Used in {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশন}} Description
["title"] String হ্যাঁ The name of the line type. In {{পার্শ্ববর্তী স্টেশনs}}, this is displayed as normal-sized text below the line name in the middle cell; in {{Rail color box}}, for some options this is displayed after the line name, separated from it by a spaced en dash (this is also used for the nonstop text). To avoid displaying a type name, set this to "".
["short name"] String না Abbreviated line name used by {{Rail color box}}.
["icon"] String না Image used by {{Rail icon}}.
["icon format"] String না Icon type used by {{Rail icon}}. If specified and not "image", the value is passed to the function that implements {{Rail color box}}.
["color"] String হ্যাঁ RGB hex triplet. Lines fall back to the ["_default"] colour (if any) or the system's colour if they themselves do not have one; types fall back to the line's colour (if any), to the ["_default"] colour (if any) or to the system's colour. This colour is used in the second and fourth columns of {{Adjacent stations}}, and by {{Rail color box}} and {{Rail icon}} as the emphasised colour. By default, if a type and its line both have a colour, then the line's colour will be treated as the background colour (see next section) for the line name in the middle cell. This can be turned off by setting the type's background colour to "" or "transparent".
["background color"] String হ্যাঁ RGB hex triplet (three or six characters). This colour is optional and is only displayed behind the line name in the middle cell. The module adds transparency so that all text displayed over the background is legible.
["border color"] String না RGB hex triplet used by {{Rail color box}}.
["text color"] String না RGB hex triplet used by {{Rail color box}}.
["left terminus"] String হ্যাঁ The station which is usually the left terminus of the line. Overrides line terminus. If there are multiple stations by default, the value should be a table containing numbered values (e.g. ["left terminus"] = {"Chesham", "Amersham"}). The key ["via"] in that table can be used to append 'via' and the value's station link.
["right terminus"] String হ্যাঁ The station which is usually the right terminus of the line; behaves like ["left terminus"].
["note-mid"] String হ্যাঁ Default small text below line and type names. Overridden by |note-mid= in transclusion.

For developers[সম্পাদনা]

Suggestions are welcomed on the talk page.

To-do list[সম্পাদনা]

  • Convert more systems from {{S-line}}, {{rail line}}, {{J-rserv}} and {{J-route}}
  • Make an example module which contains all of the module's features, to avoid excessive examples in the documentation (maybe based on {{Rdt demo}})
  • Allow direct replacement of {{Rail line}}?
  • Function for calling a line terminus (for station layouts?)
  • Before translation: figure out how to handle grammatical gender and inflection in various languages with the i18n table (e.g. these phrases)
  • Allow inline sources to be added
  • Figure out Wikidata integration (require sources on Wikidata end)
  • Add a short list of changes from {{S-line}}, for the convenience of the many editors who have used it in the last 11 years
    • changes in function (new structure, data inside module, circular and branch functionality changed, replacement of manual cell merging…)
    • parameter name changes (-left and -right, mostly – search {{S-line}} for {{{, maybe with the TemplateData generator, to make a list)
