The Gadgets extension provides a way for users to pick JavaScript-based or CSS-based "gadgets" that other wiki users provide.

Gadgets are made up of JavaScript and/or CSS snippets located on pages in the MediaWiki namespace. Each gadget is defined by a line in the page MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition, providing a name and description for the gadget, and a list of the JS and CSS snippets that it uses.

Since Gadgets reside in the MediaWiki namespace (the list defining the gadgets as well as the actual code snippets), only users with sysop rights (wiki admins) can edit the code.
