TTO renamed this task from Implement Gadgets 2.0 (tracking) to Implement Gadgets 2.0.Jul 11 2016, 12:02 AM
TTO edited projects, added Epic; removed Tracking-Neverending.
TTO removed a subscriber: wikibugs-l-list.

Not wanting to tread on anyone's feet here, but this is an "epic" task with a clearly-defined endpoint, not a continuous "tracking" task.

In fact it is a Gadgets-2.0 release duplicate. (And all releases are obviously epics, therefore is not necessary to tag it Epic.) I was going to clean it up, but by removing Tracking-Neverending it goes out of my radar, so it may take longer now...

What's the current situation here? Is this task stalled? I can neither see any major contributions done to this (nearly done?) project in more then a year nor any major blockers.

Had been hoping to put "Work on Gadgets 2.0" on the wishlist this year, but they are excluding "Global" work, following up on @MGChecker's note from last year - has this been abandoned?

In a conversation last year on wmtech IRC I got an answer, that WMF pulled devs out of this task to do more important stuff. This task therefore have got no devs and money attached from a Foundation and it is not going to be fixed in a near future.

Just for the sake of not loosing the information: I noted that there seems to be something like a standard pattern of how other web-tech-based projects deal with this, namely the pattern of:

  • Front-End-Side APIs to create UI
  • message passing between components
  • declaration of needed access rights and capabilities

These patterns can be found in

https://www.figma.com/plugin-docs/intro/
https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions
https://dev.jamovi.org/index.html

It might be helpful to look into these things. Particularly the way figma approached the security problems of sharing client-side run code is interesting; they published some blogposts about it.

There might also be a good connect to recent ideas to use react/MVVM that make hook into DOM hard (not that it is a sustainable idea in the first place…)

Is this task (which has 3 or 4 open subtasks) superseded by Gadgets-2.0 nowadays (which currently has 11 open tasks), or what is its exact difference (as it says "implement" and not "deploy")?
