N2 - We call a bounded linear operator acting between Banach spaces \textit{weakly compactly generated} ($\mathsf{WCG}$ for short) if its range is contained in a~weakly compactly generated subspace of its target space. This notion simultaneously generalises being weakly compact and having separable range. In a comprehensive study of the class of $\mathsf{WCG}$ operators, we prove that it forms a~closed surjective operator ideal and investigate its relations to other classical operator ideals. By considering the $p$th long James space $\J_p(\om_1)$, we show how properties of the ideal of $\mathsf{WCG}$ operators (such as being the unique maximal ideal) may be used to derive results outside ideal theory. For instance, we identify the $K_0$-group of $\B(\J_p(\om_1))$ as the additive group of integers and prove automatic continuity of homomorphisms from this Banach algebra.
