Refactor ChangesList-output as a table instead of a lazy unordered list dump
Open, MediumPublic


I don't know how long this has been on the unspoken TODO list but I've seen it read and heard it pass by from time to time.

It's really time we don something about these ugly unstructured unordered lists for changeslists.

Compare the attached screenshots for reference.

A few points:

  • Clean structure, things that belong to each other are in the same column. Things can be indexed by the human eye much quicker
  • More whitespace
  • Alternating colours (also possible as a list..)
  • Edit summaries line up better
  • ...

An old-time MediaWiki fork "MindTouch" also has a tabular RecentChanges, quite nice:
