Description

It should be possible to have global gadgets, that are enabled by default on each WMF wiki. This is specially useful for keeping a single central copy of popular gadgets, such as hiding global notices, or HotCat, WikiMiniAtlas, etc.

The possible repositories would be Meta-wiki or MediaWiki.org (see also T59336: Make metawiki the central OAuth wiki).

This probably depends on T16950: Support global preferences to be fixed first

unlikely that i'll touch this, so re-assigning to wikibugs

Although application/usage will still depend on Global preferences, this will be made possible by the ResourceLoader2 / Global gadgets implementation coming this summer.

Presumably a "Game of Thrones"-type summer. ;-)

Status on this?

@Legoktm removed a blocking task: T31272: Implement Gadgets 2.0 (tracking).

To elaborate on this, the original plan was to implement a ForeignRepo concept in Gadgets (similar to what we have for files, as used on Wikimedia wikis to reference files from Wikimedia Commons). However this part of Gadgets 2.0 was scrapped pending outcome of T71445. See there for more information.

So if that's closed we can have global gadgets in gadgets 2.0?
