Thanks. One of the demos (the version on doc.wikimedia.org/oojs-ui) is working fine now.

It does appear in the list, but using the German name Formulare. Is it possible that you have overlooked this?

Cavila added a comment to T2477: Page editing accesskeys conflict with browser keyboard shortcuts in Firefox.

Ctrl-option-e (Mac), formerly used to edit or view the source of a page, is not working in Mozilla Firefox either, although it works in Chrome. Could that be due to a conflict with some feature native to the browser? Or is it a bug in MediaWiki?

Cavila added a comment to T282499: Consider whether Parsoid will support forced linear parsing..

I like the suggestions by @RobinHood70 and skizzerz about preserving linear parsing as part of a 'legacy' content model (which can then be adopted on the level of namespaces and wiki pages) and by @alex-mashin about the possibilities of forcing a preliminary step of linear parsing through a parser function. Especially since like @Megajoule and many others, I'm anxious about the future of my wikis and would be a little unhappy to see fifteen years of work go to waste.

Cavila added a comment to T250963: Replace use of removed hook InternalParseBeforeSanitize.

Thank you all for moving the discussion forward. As a bit of 'power user' of Variables myself, in conjunction with other extensions (Parser Functions, Arrays, Semantic MediaWiki, etc.), I can certainly add to the list of use cases.

Sometimes double-clicking a token, with the intention of editing it, results in the removal of a token, which isn't really helpful.

Cavila added a comment to T64718: Make only allowed user can use debug toolbar.

It makes sense to restrict the envisaged 'usedebugtoolbar' permission to sysops or bureaucrats by default. It would be a breaking change so that's why I made the suggestion but I'm fine with either approach.

Cavila added a comment to T64718: Make only allowed user can use debug toolbar.

I'm not sure how much discussion we still need. For a smooth transition, I'd say: if the toolbar is enabled, show it to all users by default (current situation) and offer a config setting to tie its visibility to specific user rights.

Cavila added a comment to T113210: How should Wikimedia software support non-Wikimedia deployments of its software?.

Shouldn't we wait until VPS hosting or cloud hosting is at least in a comparable price/budget range as shared hosting today? Not to put too fine a point on it, not being able to upgrade could be a personal disaster. I'm running a large and complex site with Semantic MediaWiki (my main reason for sticking with MediaWiki) and forty-odd extensions - Composer is used to install some of these locally before the files are transferred to the remove server. $10 a month is still an awful lot of money to me so the costs of relocating would be forbidding I'm afraid.

Cavila added a comment to T75641: [SF][2.8] mapping template not working with input types tokens, combobox.

I'm using SF 3.0 (SMW 1.9, MW 1.22) and the mapping template still does not work with such input types as "combobox", "tokens" or "text with autocomplete". This may be due to certain issues with "combobox" and "tokens", because in some cases they autocomplete on the wrong category.
