It would be great to have the visual editor to edit books in Wikisource.

T48580: Create a VisualEditor plugin to integrate with ProofreadPage
I'm at least aware about this:
This is also a topic for offline because it's impossible to provide a good ZIM file of Wikisource as long as Parsoid is not able to deal correctly with it.
Two years ago we did a survey within the international Wikisource community: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikisource_Community_User_Group/Wikisource_survey_report#Visual_Editor
In the wikisource-l ml, we discussed about this a few times. It is definitely not me alone :-)
Is this task asking for VisualEditor to be enabled for opt-in to edit the main and user namespaces right now, or to wait until T48580: Create a VisualEditor plugin to integrate with ProofreadPage is complete? If the second, that is a lot of work and won't happen soon.
for many Wikisource, implementation of the VE in the ns0 is not-so important. As you are maybe aware, we have a Page: namespace that is the place where the transcription really happens, with the scan of the page of the book. I was aware of the owrk of Tpt and Rohit (if'm not mistaken), who tried to refactor the Proofread Page extension.
So, with T48580: Create a VisualEditor plugin to integrate with ProofreadPage closed, as of next Wednesday there will be a (basic) VisualEditor integration on Page: pages too. You can see it in action now on Beta Cluster, though it doesn't look very impressive as DjVu file rendering is currently broken there.
There are several improvements we will make, but for now I'm declaring this done. Great work, everyone! Next up will be real-world final testing, and then we can set about making it available by default for users on each of the Wikisources, in T138391.
This version does not seem to be functional yet:
- I see no way to change proofread status of a page: and attempt to edit it manually ends with "unknown error" (I am surprised that the proofread status raw data is even available for the editor - it is a very bad idea). Changing the proofread status is a key functionality for Wikisource, however.
- Any attempt to edit header/footer seems to break them both (moving them or their parts into main edit area); see this diff:
Is there a working version elsewhere? I do not think it is ready for integration.
I think it's T116816: beta cluster missing vips command needed to render tiffs and pngs, pnmtojpeg for DjVus. Apparently it's been broken for a while. We've just worked around it in ProofreadPage code, though, so it doesn't matter much for this use case.
- step: Editing header and footer (added <div style="color:blue;"> in header and </div> in footer- see image
- step: Save Page -> Review your changes see image
editions of a header disappeared and been replaced with "</ div>"; editions of the footer have been transferred and mixed with the contents of the page...
