Open, Needs TriagePublicGoal

Description

Why are we doing this?

To allow readers to see a preview of Wikipedia content on their phones on sites outside Wikipedia and its sister projects,

Main features

  • A card that displays a summary preview of the first sentence from the summary section of a Wikipedia article
  • The card appears at the bottom of a phone screen
  • Where a lead image is available, it shows a thumbnail of the image
  • Where an article has no lead image, the card shows text only
  • The card includes Wikipedia branding
  • The card has a CTA that can redirect user to read full article on Wikipedia
  • The card has licensing information

Interactions

  • A user can tap on a hyperlink on a website to view the preview card
  • A user can tap outside the card to close it
  • Card can be dragged up to show slightly more information from the summary of an article
  • When the card is dragged up, it can also show multiple images from the article

Hi, could you clarify what this task is about? The title doesn't specify anything nor the description.

@Masumrezarock100 This is a placeholder task for the Inuka-Team team to remember to define and implement a mobile-friendly mode in the Wikipedia-Preview component. We don't know much more yet but if you keep watching you should seem more information soon.

@AMuigai I have a first version done. It's basically the same thing as desktop but it's at the bottom of the screen and it's activated by touch instead of hover. Basically the plumbing is in place. It would be great to have product and design input before we make anything public.

Adding Sudhanshu.
