No RTL Styling support in the WLM app
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I tried a custom build of the WLM app that Yuvi prepared for me. It incorporates https://github.com/wikimedia/WLMMobile/pull/101/ , which is not merged yet, so that non-English languages would appear.

It doesn't look like the app has any RTL support at all. The Hebrew strings appear, but they are not aligned correctly.

Thank you, Yuvi, for fixing most of this.

The biggest issue that I see now is the way that the arrows at the top of screen point.

Things that need to be done:

  • Create script that given a css file spits out a new css file which supports RTL (https://code.google.com/p/cssjanus/ may help)
  • Based on user agent select the correct stylesheet and adds it dynamically. Note we may want to choose between a ltr.css and rtl.css or just conditionally add a css file with the diff of the 2 stylesheets

After triage conversation, lowering priority. While there is no RTL view of the app, strings are still readable and functional.

Bumping back. I'm going to report a few bugs where the strings are totally unreadable.
