Is there a comprehensive list of apps/plug-ins/add-ons for Wikitree?

I only found out about the DB errors project and Wikitree-FamilySearch connections app because they showed up in my G2G feed. They are very useful and I wonder what other tools I'm missing out on. Is there a list hidden away somewhere? Thanks!

Chrome Add in

Browser extension that helps you find problems when working with a WikiTree profile.

- Verifies dates to make sure they are plausible.

Thanks for your reply, Magnus. However to clarify, what I'm asking is:

Does any page list all of the apps, browser extensions, plug-ins, etc. With descriptions and links?

I've bookmarked the ones I've heard about as I come across them so that I can find them again. If there was a central repository, I could bookmark that instead.

I haven't seen one but looks like a good idea to create a page

Step 1 is to find what exists ;-)

 

That's a wonderful idea! I keep checking Apple, searching in vain for a Wikitree app. I have more than 200 Lee cousins on a page dedicated to discovering more about brothers Greenberry and Eley/Ely Lee, brothers of Halifax, NC, Williamsburg, SC and Putnam County, Ga, our common ancestors.

So I KNOW of at least 200 would-be app-users

There is no comprehensive list, because there are no apps, plug-ins or add-ons for wikitree (at least that I know of).

Explore the drop down menus in the upper right corner and you will find some interesting tools however, especially under find, where you'll find the familysearch match, but don't ignore the other drop downs.

Hi, Anne! Well, we've listed three right here:

Database errors project: "The goal of this project is to correct data errors in the WikiTree database."
http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Database_Errors

FamilySearch connections: Connects your profiles to trees on the FamilySearch website, which allows you to compare records.
http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/FamilySearch_Connections

Magnus also mentioned a Chrome browser extension.

I don't think the Database Project is what you would call an app.
