Research Mediawiki code and design a proposal for building the interface that shows diff between two revisions.
Open, MediumPublic



WikiLambdaDiff currently calculates Diffs returning the following format:

	"root.Z2K3.Z12K1.1.Z11K2": {
		"type": "change",
		"oldvalue": "Some string",
		"newvalue": "Some monolingual text"

Where, for each atomic change, we are extracting:

  • The path: root.Z2K3.Z12K1.1.Z11K2
  • The operation: change | add | remove
  • The old and/or new values

When using the history page to compare two revisions, these atomic changes must be translated into an and accessible interface that users can easily read and understand.

Some resources of interest:

Desired behavior/Acceptance criteria (returned value, expected error, performance expectations, etc.)

(Not a full design, but laying out some findings and high-level proposal)
