Deploying ReferencePreviews
Closed, ResolvedPublic


General info about the project

Technical Realization
ReferencePreviews will be realized through the Popups extension which is already used in production by page previews.

Needed for beta deployment of the extensions:

  • Help page
  • Icon + beta feature description

Beta-feature deploys

  • beta sites: Done in T213415#4905532
  • test wikis: Done in T214905
  • de-wiki: Estimated deployment April 4th 2019

Community involvement
ReferencePreviews was the #1 wish of the 2017 German-speaking Technical Wishes survey, but has also been discussed since 2014 on phabricator (T67114) and the functionality exists in a multitude of wikis as a gadget (also see T67114, at the end of the ticket description)

@Aklapper Yes, the codebase is part of Extension:Popups. However, I would not call it a subproject of Page-Previews, but another instance of popups. So I guess we could have a Popups project and then ReferencePreviews and PagePreviews as subprojects, but I'm not sure if that will help very much. And thinking about it, I would like to keep the option of tagging sth with both projects, and other tickets with just one of them.
