Wikitext Keyboard
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

User story

As a frequent Wikipedia contributor, I want an easy way to contribute to articles on my mobile device using wikitext, so that I can make edits without constantly flipping between submenus in a standard mobile keyboard.

Proposed solution

Create a special wikitext keyboard that users familiar with wikitext can switch to which enables faster input of wikitext.
Note that the default keyboard should still be the standard keyboard open when mobile editing since most users are unfamiliar with wikitext.
