Nikerabbit added a comment to T109235: Re-enable Special:AdvancedTranslate on translatewiki.net.

MediaWiki does support now JSON content model files. As far as I remember, it lints the file before saving it so some mistakes can be avoided. That's what I meant.

Nikerabbit added a comment to T180644: [minor] Tooltips for certain languages are not displayed correctly.

Compact language links is special, because we override both the language name and the tooltip from what is present in the interlanguage list.

This only affects the new filters, not the old filters. The issue seems that the URL is not updating when the limit is changed. If I add it manually to the URL it works.

In this screenshot taking in Farsi (fa) language, we see that in the following placed the numerals are not localised:

  • The numbers on Y-axis (should use mw.language.convertNumber from MediaWiki)
  • The days on X-axis (should likely use a proper date formatting from MediaWiki
  • The data on the tooltip (as above)
  • The number on the toolip

I have accepted the invite. If you are willing, do feel free to give a shot on making the patch, but I just noticed I linked the config for datavalues even though you were speaking of datatypes, which means it needs to be moved from regular mediawiki extensions, which is a bit more complicated than what I said above.

Nikerabbit added a comment to T178242: PHP memcached implementation stops working under HHVM.

I'm declaring my workaround stable for now, and re-purpose this task as general MediaWiki issue.

Nikerabbit added a comment to T179143: [wmf.5] Wrong message "This tool does not work without JavaScript..." displayed for mobile site for Special:ContentTranslation.

It turns out the warning is pretty much unrelated to the actual issue that some modules were not marked to be compatible with mobile view. I will fix that first.

Nikerabbit added a comment to T178995: Provide CX as a webapp by using an HTML5 approach.

We don't want a separate version of CX that would compete and differ from CX. The only webapp specific feature I can think of is full support for doing work while offline. But offlines requirements are in conflict with how CX works. Anything else should be possible to improve in CX itself.

Nikerabbit lowered the priority of T178242: PHP memcached implementation stops working under HHVM from Unbreak Now! to High.

Memcached seems to be filling much slower with memcached-pecl, unless something else changes. Will consider this fix stable if it runs without any issues to next week.

Those PHP errors went away when I restarted memcached – I suppose those clients use a slightly different way to serialize data.
