Description

Problem

There is an inconsistency between popovers for references and blue links (Page Previews)

Proposal

There is no reason not to use same UI for Citation Previews as Page Previews. We should use the same library and same look n feel to preview Citations.

Design


We can use bold title "Citation" to make sure people know the difference between Page Previews and Citation Previews

Do you think the reference tooltips are worth a beta preference on their own?

Any updates on this? We'd like to use this on the PCGamingWiki if possible.

As I wrote at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/189167, this task is probably blocked by T88882 (to avoid duplicating code).
Since I've repeatedly failed at tackling the latter, I think we're waiting for @Prtksxna :-\

As @Ricordisamoa mentioned, this task is stalled till the time we're done with T88882: Move Hovercards to OOjs and OOjs UI and T88164: Make hovercards default for Catalan and Greek Wikipedias for 2 months starting 2015-04-15. In the meantime you can try applying — https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/189167/ or https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/139827 and see if you get required results.

@Prtksxna how's the progress on https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/232235 and https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/232236?
If they're sufficiently flexible, I can update the patch to use OOjs UI for the dialog only.

@Ricordisamoa I think they are flexible enough. You mean use OOjs UI for the Popup only?

@Ricordisamoa I think they are flexible enough. You mean use OOjs UI for the Popup only?

No, stick with the existing popup and use OOjs UI for the configuration dialog.

@Prtksxna, do you think you have the time and energy to mentor a student in getting Hovercards to its desired shape? Integration with NavPopups etc.

No, stick with the existing popup and use OOjs UI for the configuration dialog.

Ah! Sorry, I misunderstood. Yes, that would make sense. Just one thing to keep in mind, we load Hovercards on every page, and we don't want to load OOjs UI on every page just yet for performance reasons. So, you'll have to load OOjs UI after the settings icon has been clicked, wait for it to load (maybe spin the cog wheel to suggest something is happening) and then open the settings dialog.

That sounds like a good idea, let's talk about it on IRC!

Ah sorry, mostly that's the last message in a task then and because there was an open patch I thought there was something else.

Support of parenthetical referencing (also known as Harvard referencing) would be good to have.
A nice way to do it would be to show the full citation below the partial citation.

A small note: Russian Wikipedia already uses somewhat unified look to the current Popups extension. It is not as fancy as some of the mockups here are but, in my opinion, these mockups seem too big for this kind of feature. Page Previews seem not as prominent as future Citation Previews in comparison.
