what should the sample be for the:

help_url="Muestra Gramplet"

That is, if the original wiki page is in a non-English language, what should the page title look like? ""? and would the English be "Hello_World_Gramplet.en"?

Undid your edits for the Spanish hello world as the code _(" (the underscore) assumes the first Language used by the code is English and that subsequent Languages are provided as translations , same with the help page the initial page is English and for each additional Language, the Language code is automatically added to the end of the help URL eg: just like in user manual --Daleathan (talk) 22:25, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Change of name

A little suggestion, how about renaming/moving this page to something like "Gramplets for Developers" or "How to make a Gramplet" (or merge into the other two existing pages: Writing a plugin(for Gramps version 3.2 and earlier ) and Addons development (Addons development old!)? Then we can reuse the "Gramplets" page for user facing help? This will split the technical information from the standard help? I can do this if no one objects? Yes it maybe alot of work given that many pages link here. Also we can use subpages for each of the Gramps versions to make it a bit more logical eg pagename/versionname/translationname . --Gioto (talk) 04:48, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea. It also needs Rule added as another Type of Gramplet.

I had added the Spanish Hello World because it was unclear to me how the localization process worked.

So, a Sample that originated in a foreign language would be a good exercise for an English Monoglot to learn about the translation requirements. That way, there is a better chance of their English-only designs for new Gramplets would build-in any structure needed to easily Translate their tool.

They would learn the purpose of the 1) code _(" (the underscore) 2) string translation tables

So far, I've only been successful in adding the 2 Hello World examples. (and I found the sample code for the second had a versioning error.) I tried compositing the Built-in Filter Rules for Multiple Marriage & count of sources. But that failed as an add-on. (The objective was a new filter rule to find people with more than 2 marriages. The purpose was to find a good person in the example.gramps for a screen capture on re-ordering relationships.)
