A collection of my past and current works, be it group projects or personal ones.
The bot exists with the help of Demirramon's Undertale Text Box Generator. "Ralsei" is an original character created by Toby Fox.
The Hourglass server is a self-managed (but not self-hosted) virtual private server that contains nearly all of my existing (non-Wikipedia) projects. It's used for most of my day-to-day operations, and for services that can be found on my website. It's also used for testing projects, proxying connections to and from my computer, and for hosting my website.
Most of my experience in system administration, Linux system management, and continuous deployment come from operating Hourglass.
RedWarn is a Wikipedia counter-vandalism tool initially made in April 2020, meant to be an alternative to the existing counter-vandalism tools which were first developed for Wikipedia in the early 2000s. It is currently used by hundreds of Wikipedia editors for counter-vandalism and vandalism patrolling. RedWarn is maintained by a team of volunteers.
The RedWarn team gave a speech about the project at Wikimania 2021, which was followed by a consultation with a few editors in the Wikimedia space. RedWarn was rebranded in February 2022 as Ultraviolet after a full rewrite of its source code.
The PAGASA Parser was first developed as a way to programmatically generate tropical cyclone wind signal tables on Wikipedia for active tropical cyclones threatening the Philippines. It has since been rewritten and expanded to parse out any recent Tropical Cyclone Bulletin data and export all of those into a JSON format. The PAGASA Parser is now composed of multiple packages and a web interface for processing data.
The JTWC Archiver was made to resolve the ephemeral existence of Joint Typhoon Warning Center advisories, and make them available under a reliable archive which runs periodically without the need for human intervention. The archiver has since been used on numerous Wikipedia pages as a reference for JTWC products. For redundancy, the advisories are backed up one more time on the Internet Archive every year.
Zoomiebot is a Wikipedia bot used for performing mundane tasks on Wikipedia, all of which currently do not require approval from the English Wikipedia Bot Approvals Group. Part of its tasks include automatically archiving all PAGASA bulletins and keeping track of all WikiProject Tropical cyclones articles, drafts, and project pages.
Ultraviolet is a TypeScript rewrite of RedWarn rebuilt from scratch. It aims to resolve the problems of the original RedWarn script and extend beyond its original capabilities. It is currently maintained by a team of 8 volunteers, with myself as the current project lead.
