Show item description in the Wikidata search results in MinervaNeue skin
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic


As I type in the Wikidata search bar using the default vector skin, the results show me a description of the item, apart from its name, so I know which item to pick.

However, in MinervaNeue the results display only the name, which makes it very difficult in some cases to find what you are looking for.

Would it be possible to add this functionality to MinervaNeue as well? Thanks

Current plan is to drop the code in mobile in favor of desktop but this may warrant a short term fix as this used to work...

This component is frozen and we're not accepting modifications to the code given our upcoming goal T282473 (which we should beginning within the next month).

For WIkidata T275251 is the main blocker for seeing the new search in action so I'd suggest prioritizing this work if you want to see this fixed.
