Refactor VisualEditor editing plugin for Cite back into the Cite extension
OpenPublic

Description

Depends on VisualEditor having a (stable) API. As soon as it is considered stable enough, we can implement support for it in the Cite extension using whatever hook/api it offers.

Also needs detection since there are (obviously) wikis that have Cite but not VisualEditor. So probably some conditionally loaded module.

Adding 'javascript' keyword, because I think this is JavaScript related...

"Since Parsoid has reimplemented the Cite extension in their own code, any fixes to Cite are going to be very difficult to get merged unless someone wants to do all the work twice, once in PHP and once in nodejs."

James: Quim wondered if this means that all Cite bugs.docs can be eventually and officially deprecated.

Any vague timeframe for this ticket, assuming that Trevor still works on this?

That's a totally different issue about Parsoid's Cite vs Cite.php; this bug is about the location of code currently in the VisualEditor-MediaWiki repo that should be moved to the Cite extension's repository, like we did for <math> etc. Not sure if there's a bug about that?

That's a question for the mythical other bug (but I'd say no).

Any vague timeframe for this ticket, assuming that Trevor still works on
this?

I'd want it to settle down a little more before the code was transitioned, but probably in a few months' time.
