The new termbox has proven itself on the mobile site of Wikidata. In order to reduce tech-debt and code duplication we also want to move forward with using it on the desktop site. Before we can do this we need to make a few more adaptations to make it work well on desktop and go through iterations with the editors (beta feature or similar, to be decided). As a first step UX and product want to better understand what it would look like if we just took the current version to desktop in order to better evaluate the remaining work needed. In order to do that we want to trial it on a test system without making any user-visible changes on Wikidata.
- Termbox on Desktop page of Beta Wikidata is the Termbox v2 implementation as currently (September 2020) visible on Mobile Wikidata
- This new behavior on beta is to be switched using a feature toggle (e.g. GET parameter)
- UX and product can evaluate the current state of the new termbox on desktop on a test system
- Which system do we use? Product preference is https://wikidata.beta.wmflabs.org
