Add timeline-related information and tasks here

Timeline concept

The timeline can be a separate component, and it can be a display mode in any component. Additionally, the time-bound events could be aggregated from all components to the master timeline component – filtered and faceted at will.

To allow extra complexity, the master timeline component could become part of a master topic display combining a map, gallery, and a timeline and displaying data from all components.

Timeline can also be a display mode for a family tree, and there are sketches made for that in https://wikidocumentaries.wmflabs.org/wiki/Family_tree.

The illustrated family timeline idea:

Resources

There is previous development in components EventsList and TopicTimeline. Neither of them are shown currently for different reasons. They can be a good source for next steps.

Some previously recorded thoughts in https://wikidocumentaries.wmflabs.org/wiki/Timeline. They have been written over an extensive time period and outdated information can be expected to appear.

It would be beneficial to find a timeline javascript script that could be further developed. Initially, the display does not need to follow the Wikidocumentaries site style, but that is a goal.
