Volker_E added a comment to T291286: Explore iterations of current language button implementation: Make language button progressive.

Hi all, I've just noticed this task for the first time (no surprise having all the focus and progress on Codex over last couple of weeks).
Late comments therefore: From a design system perspective the quiet progressive button with dropdown seems the preferable choice here.
The primary progressive button would be a wrong treatment as those buttons are aimed to signify the single, primary action in a view.

Volker_E updated subscribers of T280666: Extend colour and size guidelines of the Wikimedia icon set .

The new Codex library features a different ability to icon usage and inclusion, catering to all three needs mentioned in the task description, implemented by @Catrope.

  • The icon element uses SVGs fill=currentColor. With that it defaults to the wrapper HTML element's color style. And can be easily overwritten by a CSS class or even an inline style (not advised).
  • The size setting is similarly easy with classes amending the min-width or width of the Codex Icon component when placed inline. See demo for an example of those inline Icons. The remaining question is if the icon should be specifically set-able or if a number of specific typography wrapper bound styles could be sufficient. Thinking of all block level elements direct icon component children here.

Volker_E added a comment to T293298: Remove IE9 & IE10 from basic support.

@Izno Several fair points. Acknowledge that the task description hasn't been outlined bullet-proof at point of writing due to time scarcity. Please note that IE9 and IE10 are though the biggest blockers from the to be updated list of basic support browsers. They have a 10+million pageviews base per day (equals ~0.05%), while for example all Android 4 comes down to 3.8 million including statistics outliers and earlier versions lower than 4.4.
They also got historically provided the largest amount of browser specific workarounds and code in MediaWiki core and beyond, with the biggest maintenance relief and performance impact in comparison to mentioned Android 4.4 or Firefox 27 to be removed from basic support (in a different task).

Volker_E added a comment to T295885: OOUI ComboBoxInputWidget (filtering on input) updates.

Not sure I completely follow the task description and the problem statement here with the outlined improvements? The ComboboxWidget comes in different variants of interaction currently. Only the “filtering on input” doesn't show all values when input is already provided.
Rephrasing for myself, even if there's a value selected, focussing the input field or clicking the dropdown button would show all available options again, correct? With the selected one highlighted? As soon as keyboard input is provided the options list is filtered again?

Volker_E added a comment to T295085: The User Menu drop down stays open even after navigating away from a page .

Behavior is just true for the user menu links and not for any other links. Not even if we're providing some sort of focus for the menu item clicked, I'd see a user benefit here. If you click Watchlist and another link on the Watchlist page and then go back twice, suddenly the user menu is still open. It's more confusing than anything else IMO.

When working on the tokens patch, I've discovered a detail I think would still lead to confusion regarding wikimedia-codex.json + wikimedia-legacy.json:
We have a design-/theme-agnostic library “Codex” that carries theme “wikimedia-codex.json' as one of it's themes.
That's why "Wikimedia UI" still makes sense to me and makes things more obvious.

#2 is a no-go for Design Systems approach from my current understanding, as it would disable combining tokens and icons into a different technical implementation – think for example Apps using only tokens or a React implementation of the Design System, where tokens and icons are essential.

For one, this is great progress. Also I like the idea of changing to toggle switches, as long as the update is dynamic.
From a usability perspective it would make sense for the show and hide code to be either quiet toggle buttons (not yet part of Codex) or to stay as quiet buttons with an additional icon.

Volker_E added a comment to T295106: Update WVUI for Vue 3 compatibility.

I figured out what the problem was: WVUI embeds the composition API plugin, which causes problems when running under Vue 3 where there's a real composition API. I have working draft patches that externalize the composition API to fix this problem. I'll get them into reviewable shape tomorrow and submit them.

Because externalizing the composition API plugin also requires a change to ResourceLoader, I've also written an alternative patch that continues to bundle the plugin with WVUI but bypasses it when it detects that Vue 3 is being used.

Refined for unifying to docs: and tests: plural over singular for those changes.
