Hi,

I speak Russian and English.

I develop tools for Wikimedia projects in Perl (Mediawiki::API, BasicBot, Dancer), JavaScript (jquery, oojs, MediaWiki API), and PHP.

At present I am located in Sydney, Australia (UTC+10 or UTC+11). I am looking for contributors who know JavaScript or PHP/MediaWiki who would be willing to work with me as a peer to help me with extension and gadgets development. Similarly I am willing to help you with your gadgets and your MediaWiki issues as far as my knowledge allows.

I read the mailing lists, IRC, my watchlists and my talk pages on-wiki, my Phabricator feed. The quickest way to reach me is on IRC or on-wiki (Wikitech).

Gryllida added a comment to T189401: document the timelines format.

@TheDJ this is an interactive website. It is difficult to navigate and is not a substitute for good documentation. Do not think it would be an efficient use of contributors' time. Instead what I would expect to see is a tutorial showing how to create simple (2-3 line) plots and then build on it to add more complicated features. This would allow the relevant wikis to unleash the full potential of the graphs extension more easily.

Gryllida added a comment to T188063: add immediate save button to CodeEditor (live editing).

Using Extension:Drafts is indeed similar, but there is one difference: saving a draft perhaps does not allow me to test how the current version of the code runs. Hence the "and checking how they run" remark in the original submission. That's the use-case it is intended to address -- someone is developing a JavaScript gadget or user script on-wiki by making incremental changes to it and testing its behaviour on another page.
