Support Translate extension in Parsoid
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

I notice that https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hackathon&veaction=edit&vesection=7 contains a lot of exposed <translate> and <tvar> markup.

It would be nice to support this properly in Parsoid (and eventually Visual Editor as well, but let's start with Parsoid).

IIRC, the markup for the translate extension is not particularly complicated to parse. Much easier than Language Converter, at least. The hard part is probably figuring out how to structure extensions in Parsoid, but we can deal with that as a refactor once the basic functionality is implemented.

This seems like it would be a thematic and appropriate Wikimania hackathon project.

It's a dup, but i think we need a separate task for the hackathon project, so that people can subscribe to it to express interest, etc.

We'll close this one after the hackathon.

There's also T55974 if people want to start on the VE side. Maybe we can get both done during the Hackathon! (Optimism.)

What is the status of this task, now that Wikimania 2015 is over? Did this hacking project take place and was successfully finished? If yes: Please provide an update and potentially summarize findings / provide a link to anything relevant (and if the task is not completely finished yet, please move the project to the "Work continues after Mexico City" column on the #Wikimania-Hackathon-2015 workboard). If no: Please edit this task by removing the #Wikimania-Hackathon-2015 project from this task. Thanks for your help and keeping this task updated!

We'll use the original task for tracking this work and close this one since we didn't get to it during the hackathon.
