Semi-automatic generation of fuel table

Since updating the fuel table is a tedious and error-prone task, I have written a Lua script to semi-automatically generate the table. Put the following code into a mod called “wikifuel”, enable it in Minetest Game with no other mods enabled and use the /wikifuel command. The mod will then output a wiki table into fuel_recipes.txt in the world directory. This wiki table can be pasted into the the article.

The wiki table you get will still need manual updates:

  • Links need to be corrected
  • Images need to be corrected
  • Replacements must be added by hand (e.g. Lava Bucket turning into Empty Bucket)
  • Groups must be added by hand
-- TODO: Add support for replacements
-- TODO: Add support for groups
-- TODO: Make item count sortable
