Convert mediawiki.legacy.shared to LESS
Closed, DeclinedPublic


It would be nice to express the colors and sizes used in, e.g. skins/common/shared.css, as LESS variables and functions. Particularly color combinations like errorbox, warningbox where users have requested increased contrast between type and background for legibility.

I'm going to be bold here and decline this, so that people don't spend time working on it. It's a legacy module and it should be killed rather than improved.

Any time spent rewriting it as LESS would be better spent splitting it up (it's over a thousand lines now) – and if LESS makes sense for the split up modules, then let's use it there.
