Instant feedback from non-English Wikipedia

Post by pic » Mon Jun 16, 2014 12:35 am

I've tried searching for the lbaction associated with the current implementation of English Wikipedia's instant feedback feature with no luck. Can someone provide the code so that I can simply change the URL to French Wikipedia?

I have written a german and a french version. You can find them here:

I am not a good french speaker, so could you check the french translation?

Manuel, I took your French Wikipedia action and successfully modified it to search Italian Wikipedia…that was easy! However, like pic I'd like to be able to find the built-in English Wikipedia action. Its search is faster, more reliable, and includes a preview of the first sentence of the article. However, it doesn't show up in the LB application bundle. Maybe it's using a private API and is hidden for some reason? Still, it would be nice to be able to offer the same level of support for Wikipedias in other languages as their is for English…either with a built-in or third-party action.

You find the built-in Actions inside the LaunchBar .app package under Resources.

Yes, but LB.app > Contents > Resources > Actions does not contain the (English) Wikipedia action.
