Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Browser Extensions

If you want to use this plugin on a wiki that does not have it installed (eg. on or a wiki where you have no administrative control) you can also install it as a browser extension1).

The browser extension will automatically inject the appropriate JavaScript when you edit a DokuWiki page. It will look and feel exactly as if the plugin was installed for all users in that wiki.

Theoretically it should be possible to install the same extension in Microsoft Edge as well, but it seems their store is not open for developers, yet.



The plugin adds a new picker to the toolbar which provides the following functions.

Sort Ascending

Selected text is sorted line by line in ascending order. Use this to sort tables or lists. No, this does not let you sort a table by the second column or any other sophisticated thing. It just sorts text lines alphabetically.

Sort Descending

Same as above but reversed

Add Indention

Selected lines are indented by two spaces. Nice to quickly change the level of a bunch of list items.

Remove Indention

Same as above but removes two spaces.

Word Count

This basically implements the features of wordcounter into an on-demand counter. It counts characters and words of the total page, the currently edited section (if any) and the selected text (if any).

Might not always be 100% correct, but should be good enough.

Find and Replace

This opens a Find and Replace dialog. It allows you to search the text in the editor and do replacements.

More features

Might come some day. Earlier if you send patches. Here are a few ideas:

It's a WebExtension suitable for multiple browsers
