Revise edit flow transitions in mobile VE
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Revisions

  • When a contributor takes the action [1] that "opens" the Save dialog, treat the transition how it is currently treated in the mobile wikitext editor [2]. See this demo: https://youtu.be/3jaQ_To3RxM
  • When a contributor takes the action [3] to go "back" from the save dialog, treat the transition how it is currently treated in the mobile wikitext editor [2]. See clip above

Context

  • Platform: mobile
  • Editing interface: VE

"Done"

  • Remove all transitions for opening inspectors and the save dialog
  • Preserve transitions for:
    • Edit Cards
    • Smaller alerts (e.g. "Discard edits" dialog)

  1. The action: I'm being intentionally generic here considering the "action" to advance is going to change from "Publish" to ">" once v1 of the toolbar is deployed. See: T225634
  2. Current mobile wikitext transition: I think we said there currently is "no transition," but I wasn't sure so I stopped short of specifying "no transition."
  3. The action: Again, I'm being intentionally generic here considering this "action" to go back is going to change from "X" to "<" once v1 of the toolbar is deployed. See: T225634

@DLynch, please let me know if this task is needing any more definition.

On 24-September, we decided we are going to work on this as part of our work to wrap up this phase of work on the mobile VE toolbar.

As part of that conversation we clarified the scope of this task (now reflected in the task description as well):

  • We are going to remove all transitions for opening inspectors and the save dialog
  • We are going preserve transitions for:
    • Edit Cards
    • Smaller alerts (e.g. "Discard edits" dialog)
