VisualEditor: Implement TemplateData extension and get it deployed for the Template Inspector
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

For the forthcoming Template Inspector to work, we will need a way to "hint" for the Inspector how the parameters of the VE should be used - we're intending for now for this to be a template-hinting extension that allows editors to specify in the wikitext source what the parameters are called and how they should be used, akin to the Template documentation template on Commons.


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Initial code in gerrit 49840 which is now merged.

To come - review, deployment and usage.

I will need to review and deploy this soonish.

Live on mw.org and testwiki now.

We should get this deployed everywhere this coming week.

We should get this deployed everywhere this coming week.

I'd like see to a working demo of this feature and expanded documentation at [[mw:Extension:TemplateData]] before this is deployed elsewhere.

This is now deployed to all wikis. Closing.

I've made some quick updates, but you're right, it does need proper documentation.
