Many times you may want to just 'test' an idea for a template, I haven't found a sensible way of fully testing templates by themselves (as they will not get included in the edited version, but rather the saved version).

The idea of this Template:Sandbox is to have that, a simple testing zone that will not interfere with others and avoid leaving a trail of botched attempts.

Please leave this comment/text for others to read.

Testing: Status box


Sandbox
(activity)
Contributors
{{{contributors}}}
Testing parameterized categorizations:

[[Category:Software idea]]
    source => {{{source}}} | no source
    type => {{{type}}} | {{{type}}}
    status => {{{status}}} | {{{status}}}

This template automatically includes the page in the [[:Category:{{{type}}}]].

Many of the 'parameters' only make sense under certain circumstances (ie: no point in mentioning l10n if there's no source code).

Usage

{{Status box
 | component    = <!-- OPTIONAL — Name of the component (defaults to page title) -->
 | type         = <!-- OPTIONAL — Type of the component {activity, core, support} -->
 | icon         = <!-- OPTIONAL — file name.ext (sans [[Image:file name.ext]] -->
 | contributors = <!-- List of people contributing to the activity -->
 | source       = <!-- OPTIONAL — Repository / location of the source -->
<!-- The following only make sense (and will only show) if there's a source value -->
 | status       = <!-- OPTIONAL — Status of the activity -->
 | build        = <!-- OPTIONAL — Build # where it first appeared -->
 | language     = <!-- OPTIONAL — Computer language of the source -->
 | l10n         = <!-- OPTIONAL — Repository / location of the l10n resources -->
 | testplan     = <!-- OPTIONAL — link to the test plan page -->
 | version      = <!-- Current/latest version available -->dropping it
 | base         = <!-- Yes/No if it's included in the OS images
                       / Could be the first build number -->dropping it
 }}

Sample

Empty

Raw invocation.

Basically an idea; using the page name; and misclassified by type, so defaults to a Unknown Component. Nothing else should show.

pos= iftest=no

{{ Sandbox

Simple 3 
An activity idea that has code and an icon, in beta status, with l10n resources
