This AddOn creates wikipedia references from websites by right click with mouse. It includes an automatic detection of Google-Books, Amazon, and each other website (as simple ref or web template reference). The result is automatic copied to the clipboard. Additionally an selected Digital Object Identifier (DOI) or PubMed ID could directly translated in an wikipedia reference by jump to a special website which knows all of DOI and PubMed ID with title, author, ... and provides a valid wikipedia reference.

The implementation detects some content und present it via variables. These variables can be added by §variable§ in text prototypes for easy creation of references. To adapt the output to your wishes you can be change the prototypes in the settings page. If you set the prototypes to empty, the preferences is set to a default value at the next start.

For GoogleBook references it provides the status variables GoogleBookId, Page, Title, Author, ISBN and Publisher. Also the current content of the clipboard, the current page title, the current page url and other things can be used.

An example for a simple output can be: <ref>[§WebsiteUrl§ §WebsiteUrl§]</ref>

For example for a correct german reference string you can use the output prototype:
<ref name="“§Author§“">{{Literatur| Autor=§Author§ | Titel=§Title§ | Verlag=§Publisher§ | ISBN=§ISBN§ | Jahr=§PublicationYear§ | Online={{Google Buch | BuchID=§GoogleBookId§ | Seite=§Page§ }} | Seiten=§Page§ }}</ref>

For example for a correct english reference string for web citation you can use the output prototype:
<ref name="">{{cite web |url=§WebsiteUrl§ |title=§WebsiteTitle§ |author=§Selection§ |date= |work= |publisher= |accessdate=§CurrentDate§}}</ref>
