Every Assembly line object belongs to one of the following types:

  • Feeders - supply data to the assembly line
  • Fetchers - fetch full wiki objects by some identificator (eg. pages by titles)
  • Filters - let through only data that matches given criteria, or reorder the data
  • Signal modifiers - modify signals and their properties in some way
  • Workers - process the data in one way or another
  • Writers - write the processed data (back to the wiki, or to a file, etc.)

Each of those types is in a subtree named after it, inside the /line subdirectory in the bot.
