Description

This module provides the API to allow to Like pages in XWiki.

Design

The Like implementation internally relies on the Extension.Ratings API.
The way Like manipulates the Ratings data is configured in the LikeRatingsConfiguration file.

By default, this configuration specifies that Likes are stored in a Solr core, without average data, and without storing the vote "0". 

Properties

This is an experimental feature only specified internally, so it's possible that it changes in any future version.

12.10.9+, 13.4.3+, 13.7+ 

It's possible to chose to store the Solr average ratings for Like by using the following properties in xwiki.properties:
## Specify if the average rating should be stored or not for likes. Default value is false.
like.averagerating.isStored=true

## Specify where the average ratings should be stored. Default value is xobject. Possible values are currently solr or xobject.
like.averagerating.hint=xobject

This capability has been provided to allow performing HQL request to retrieve the top-liked pages, since the total number of votes is also stored in average xobjects.

Events

Two events related to Like can be triggered:
  - LikeEvent
  - UnlikeEvent

Both those events are triggered with the following information:
  - source: the user who performed the like, sent as a UserReference
  - data: the entity reference which have been liked or unliked, sent as an EntityReference

Script service

The following script service API is available:
/**
     * Check if current user is allowed to use Like on the given reference.
     * Note that we explicitely deny the right for guests.
     * @param entityReference the reference on which to use like.
     * @return {@code true} only if current user is not guest and has Like right on the reference.
     */

   public boolean isAuthorized(EntityReference entityReference)

   /**
     * Check if the display button should be displayed: should be {@code true} if the like feature is enabled
     * (see {@link LikeConfiguration#isEnabled()}) and if current user is authorized to use like
     * (see {@link #isAuthorized(EntityReference)}) or if the configuration is set to always display it
     * (see {@link LikeConfiguration#alwaysDisplayButton()}).
     *
     * @param entityReference the reference for which to display the button
     * @return {@code true} only if the button should be displayed.

     * @return the number of likes performed.

   /**
     * Determine if the current user already liked the given reference.
     * @param entityReference the reference for which to check if the current liked it or not already.
     * @return {@code true} if the entity has been already liked.
     */

   public boolean isLiked(EntityReference entityReference)

   /**
     * Return the likers of a reference.
     *
