Schnark added a comment to T237688: Raise MW JS requirement to include ES6 Promise (drop IE11, Safari 5-6, and Android 4.1-4.3).

Are we already bikeshedding over which polyfill to use? If so, https://github.com/taylorhakes/promise-polyfill is much smaller than https://github.com/stefanpenner/es6-promise.

The size difference is quite significant. Do we know why the other one is so much larger? Is it missing something?

Fri, Nov 8, 8:55 AM · Wiktionary, Growth-Team, MediaWiki-Recent-changes
Schnark added a comment to T237190: style="overflow:auto" should be applied directly to the <source>.

As far as I understand, the religious fights are mostly about whether pre should allow manual breaks only, or whether browsers may break lines when too long. Since the core CSS already sets white-space: pre-wrap; for pre, .mw-code, this fight is over, and allowing breaks inside words when necessary shouldn't be much controversial.
On the other hand, this means that there should be only very few code blocks that currently overflow anyway. So I can't imagine that this change could have any real influence on any Wikipedia community using or rejecting code examples.

Schnark added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector for improved UX (and consistency).

There are actually more inconsistencies that could and should be addressed:

  • External links and interwiki links currently use #36c as color, and #636 when visited. But in edit comments (where only interwiki links may occur) they use the normal link colors instead. This means, currently they are barely distinguishable from internal links, not distinguishable at all in edit comments, and won't be distinguishable after the proposed update, except when visited. I actually don't really see the point in having different colors for them at all (for external links the icon after the link should be enough), so it might be best to remove all those special colors and use the proposed ones for all links. But in any case, the colors for these links really should be addressed here, too.
  • Active links (i.e. while you click on them) use #faa700, which has a very poor contrast ratio. Except for external links, which use #b63. (This is also the case for interwiki links, though they have an additional definition with yet another color, but that's overridden a few lines later.) And except for some (but not all) interface links, which don't have a special color. And except for links to missing pages, which don't have a special color for active links, either.
  • While we are at it: Links to missing pages use #ba0000, and #a55858 when visited. Except when the missing link is in a vector tab (e.g. link to missing talk page), there always #a55858 is used, even for links not visited.

Schnark added a comment to T154977: NWE encodes linebreaks as \r\n but post-Parsoid wikitext is \n.

Now I found the recently created and fixed T237040: Visual editor changing automatically something in text while saving. Can we assume that after that change currently no automatic replacement happens, and that this issue can be closed, too, even if the original cause might have been different?

Schnark added a comment to T65060: Parsoid should not replace namespace aliases by other translations.

This happened in dewiki: https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Totengr%C3%A4ber_(K%C3%A4fer)&type=revision&diff=193594417&oldid=191699592
And the funny thing is that some users can reproduce it, and some can't, and sometimes the behaviour just changes. When I tested a few days ago, VE/Parsoid changed every Bild ("Image") to Datei ("File"), but when I tested again today, no such automatic changes occurred, even with the same edits in the same articles.

Always declare the relevant dependencies for your module, or use mw.loader.using()." Assuming this is still true and won't be changed, setting the state of user.options to ready immediately might break scripts.

Oh, and I just want to say that I admire the magic with perfectly chosen default values that makes the parser even correctly detect signatures by users that only link to their talk page and sign on that talk page. Even though this doesn't generate a real link, the parser works as expected.

Schnark added a comment to T234404: Write a comment parser for PHP HTML.
  • I see that there is code for local timezone abbreviations, but it doesn't seem to work: On https://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Auskunft (and other pages on de.wikt), which uses MEZ and MESZ instead of CET and CEST, no signatures are found.
  • Even minor variations in the timestamp format make the parser fail, e.g. deleting a leading 0 in the hour, missing period after abbreviated month, etc. These variations sometimes happen when a missing or wrong signature is fixed manually afterwords, and for old comments (seems like back in 2006 the format was a little different, which of course isn't a real problem, but probably means the parser will break when the timestamp format is changed again).
  • When the name of the user comes after the timestamp, the parser doesn't find it (uncommon, happens mostly when you accidentally click twice to insert 8 tildes instead of 4, https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diskussion:Stra%C3%9Fenbahn_Berlin#Pl%C3%A4ne_f%C3%BCr_Neubaustrecken)
  • It's not clear what will happen when a comment has 2 timestamps (E.g. "See my previous comment on <old timestamp> --User <new timestamp>", or "Comment -- User <first timestamp>, modified <second timestamp>"), or even 2 signatures.

Schnark added a project to T226478: Syntaxhighlight in NWE out of sync when text contains TAB characters: Regression.

Actually, CodeMirror still replaces TAB characters by arrows for display, via ve.ui.CodeMirrorAction.static.fixWhitespace. It's NWE that no longer does this replacement, so this must be a regression.

Schnark added a comment to T226478: Syntaxhighlight in NWE out of sync when text contains TAB characters.

I just copied from a code file which had the code indented with tab characters. CodeEditor has nothing to do with it, this is about wikitext (which may contain code inside syntaxhighlight tags), not about real code.
No tool does or should replace anything during pasting, the pasted tab characters are still real tab characters. But VE and NWE display a tab character as arrow (just as VE displays a single line break as hooked arrow), which is shorter than the real tab character used by CodeMirror.

I can also reproduce this on mediawiki.org and de.wikisource. All of these wikis have the SingleEditTab config in common, so perhaps this has some strange effect on the focus. The focus actually isn't even on the dialog, you can't close it by pressing ESC.
