[SPIKE] TWL - Investigate work required before updating JQuery
Open, Needs TriagePublic


In The Wikipedia Library, the JQuery versions being used are old and have some security risks. We need to update them. For that reason we must investigate what we must do in order to be able to install the newest versions of JQuery.

Questions that need answering in this spike:

  • What pip dependencies do we need to update that use a newer version of JQuery?
  • If a dependency uses an older version of JQuery, can we abandon that dependency in favor of a more modern one or drop it altogether?
  • Can we install JQuery from npm instead of having the library in the repository?
    • If so, what step do we need to take in order to make that happen?
