Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T204201: Extend MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition capabilities.

Until all of this gets ever implemented, it may be a good idea to split those gadgets into 2: Move all the gadget contents and dependencies to a new hidden gadget, and leave on the primary gadget only the logic for activation, and a call to mw.loader.load() that loads the hidden gadget. This would reduce the length of JavaScript code that gets loaded on all pages that don't make use of these. The drawback would be it takes more time to load (probably not critical for most gadgets).

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T5593: [Epic] SVG client side rendering.

SVG inside <img> tags have some restrictions in place that make them safe enough to be enabled on WMF wikis. Inline SVG would expose users to privacy problems or malicious scripts, and I foresee that they will never be allowed.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T5593: [Epic] SVG client side rendering.

I'd really appreciate using a single SVG source file instead of about 100 png icons to write a hiero sentence. Out in the wild most hieros face right. I'd really appreciate a possibility for Wikipedia hieroglyphs to do so as well. Client side svg rendering would do that.

And what about some [[File:ATQuellenNoLnk.svg]]? As you might guess I have an ATQuellen.svg file here having a couple of links pointing to Wikipedia pages. How could I have such links in an svg file uploaded to Wikimedia?

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T224854: maintenance/cleanupUsersWithNoId.php doesn't do anything.

In any case, I'm not entirely comfortable with forcing --overwrite-with "Unknown user" as it risks breaking attribution or creating new problems. So far, all of the problem entries look to be spambots or maintenance scripts (which would make sense, as they're the ones most likely to be missing a users table entry or be showing a name with user_id==0) but it'd be better just to auto-create the user (even if it's a dummy user table entry for some random bot or script) rather than risk doing something which could break attribution for imported wikitext which belongs to a real, human user somewhere.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T105214: Preview shows wikitext instead of page title on test.wikipedia.org.

I think the best solution is to put the title in a special element inside of the firstHeading. Live preview can then just replace the content in this element and keep the rest of the firstHeading unchanged. But this would only solve the problem on the firstHeading, not on the HTML title. The update of the HTML title can also dropped completely. Its just a preview and the result including any embedded HTML is already visible on the firstHeading.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T19577: Thumbnail urls should be versioned and sent with Expires headers.

I think the big question is: what should happen when a reupload is done? I think the image on the page needs to be updated eventually, one way or another. So it seems to me that you can either purge the HTML, purge the thumbnails, or wait for one or the other object to expire from the CDN. Purging the HTML has the advantage of not completely breaking the page display if the aspect ratio changes. Maybe we can incrementally update the HTML in the parser cache, or maybe trigger a reparse of the wikitext if the aspect ratio or some other property of the image changes.

If you just change the URL in getThumbUrl() and send an Expires header, as seems to be the original proposal, then a reupload will not take effect until either the thumbnail expires or the parser cache is invalidated. Maybe that's OK, depending on your requirements. If you have a small site, you can set an expiry time of 1 day and probably get a decent cache hit ratio out of that, and then if there is a reupload, your readers get to see it after a day. It's cheap, but it works. I don't know if it's the right tradeoff for Wikimedia, where we control the CDN, and where fast updates in response to user edits are supposedly a point of pride.

Ciencia_Al_Poder claimed T272466: Add a configuration variable for namespaces to suggest pages from.

Content namespaces make sense for search results, but not for link suggestions, since one usually wants to explicitly type the namespace when filling a link on wikitext and prevent other namespaces from polluting the suggestions.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T270603: Module site.styles generates different output depending on mobile cookie, if $wgMFSiteStylesRenderBlocking = true;.

Yes, I know how this mf_useformat cookie works, because on my site there's no mobile domain, and I rewrite all URLs internally based on this cookie, giving users the same URL on both desktop and mobile but having only 2 versions of the page in varnish cache (mobile and desktop). This allows users share a link to the page, and users opening that link will see a consistent page according to their device (WMF approach here is terrible). My Varnish is configured to strip all cookies for load.php URLs, and that's how I found this bug.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T44238: Provide a link to the permalink for this page in the user interface (to page, not revision).
  1. Aside from title and page ID being different, of these two title is considered stable, and page ID considered unstable. Titles form the basis of our canonical and long-term supported URLs and are expected to keep working and keep tracking the same subject matter even after splits, merges, deletes, undeletes, and recreations. Page IDs are something different, largely internal, and not meant to be stable or used by end-users outside of short-term interactions with the API and such.

@HotdogPi Can you attach a screenshot where we can see the editor you're using? That would probably be more helpful than a description

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T271906: Making non-breaking spaces visible while editing.

If you're talking about the plain text editor (where you have a plain text area without any outlining or syntax highlight), there's no possibility to outline non-breaking spaces nor anything.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T257102: MediaWiki 1.34.2 release tarball incompatible with 7zip on Windows due to Pax format.

I think the fix should be easy. Instead of telling *everyone* to not use some very popular extraction tools (because most of them don't seem to support this new format), revert the way *you* generate the tar archive so it works for everyone.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T270603: Module site.styles generates different output depending on mobile cookie, if $wgMFSiteStylesRenderBlocking = true;.

This happens to work for WMF because our traffic layer (Varnish) is configured to strip cookies from these requests, and because we serve MobileFrontend from a separate domain (for now, ref T214998). This only works can work for third-parties (though equally unsupported) so long as you also do both of those things.

I have ventured to write a patch that should fix this. However, I'm not sure if they'll get accepted, since it changes a couple of hooks to pass the ResourceLoaderContext, required to know whether the modules have been loaded from target=mobile.
