Currently, the new termbox, aka Termbox v2, aka mobile termbox, is disabled by default in Wikibase, but enabled in the example settings, meaning it’s effectively default-enabled in most Wikibase installations (including the release pipeline docker images). As we want to get rid of the example settings, we need to make a decision: should we properly enable termbox by default, or disable it (with a notice in the release notes that it’s no longer enabled by the example settings)?
|Open||None||T97012 Wikibase defaults should be usable out of the box|
|Open||None||T291617 WikibaseRepo and WikibaseClient should not require loading default or example settings files|
|Resolved||Lucas_Werkmeister_WMDE||T292962 Decide whether to enable new termbox by default in Wikibase|
- the example settings for the Wikibase Extension already enable the termbox on Mobile, and it seems like the vast majority of people uses the example settings (as this is encouraged in all the documentation), so the vast majority seems to be seeing the termbox already
- Taking this out of the settings will make the installation process easier.
