  • Bug 49643 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

CCing Moriel who's working for GSoC2013 on VisualEditor issues around i18n and in particular RTL; she may have some thoughts. :-)

  • Bug 49704 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
  • Bug 50293 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Making this a bug instead of a feature, as we would expect the key mappings to work on any input field that is more or less supported for well supported and stable MediaWiki extensions, including VisualEditor.

Set to highest priority. Tracked on Wikimedia Language Engineering team as https://mingle.corp.wikimedia.org/projects/internationalization/cards/3493

If anyone is working on this and expects to be done before 2013-07-07, please let us know and we'll wait. Otherwise, I expect we will have development capacity to take this up and get it delivered by 2013-07-09.

Santhosh, I think by changing the summary, we could avoid the duplicates?

Hi,

Waiting for this to be available for test,if possible couple of days before VE to be launched on vernacular wikis which are dependent on ULS. Time table for hi and few other wikis is expected to be 22nd July 2013.

Thanks and Warm Regards

It's probably important to manage expectations here.

Tl;dr: it's not realistic to assess that ULS/jQuery.IME input methods will work in VE before the end of July 2013. At this time, no reliable estimate can be made when this is to be expected. Working towards getting this issue resolved has a high priority in the VE and LE teams.

Input methods for many scripts, either natively supported by an operating system, by an application, or by JavaScript, are currently incompatible or at least lead to unexpcted behavior when using VisualEditor.

Possible ways that will allow this to be resolved are currently being explored. I expect that by the end of next week, The VisualEditor and Language Engineering team will have an understanding that will allow them to estimate how much time is needed to make native input possible in most, if not all scripts, when using VE. Once that is done, further exploration is needed to assess the effort needed to make input methods work correctly, including the input methods of ULS/jQuery.IME.

See bug 33077 for more details. In the near future, I expect we will be able to identify issues that need to be resolved before we can work on this issue specifically in the field "depends on".

Hi,

Thanks for your reply,I know in any case you will be doing your best to make both extensions compatible.What will be likely situation during the time gap,so please let we know if you can think of any easy time gap solution can be made available.Other wise even while ULS is with us, we will be back to square one.

Warm Regards

With https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/79755/ jquery.ime start working in visual editor. The UI is not integrated well with the VE UI. And there are VE specific bugs related to cursor handling and text selection, that are applicable to all IMEs or non latin text.

@ Santhosh Thottingal Please have a look at [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback#VE_.2B_ULS_unicode_Devnagari_Script_input_issues].I have added a table of known issues today.

Rgds

Please use bugzilla as the single place o make issues known that are relevant for developers. References to lists of issues on wiki pages will not do.
