• jhobs moved T152004: Add preview type to hovercards schema from Code Review to Doing on the Reading-Web-Sprint-89-🎂 board.

I guess it's lucky this didn't get resolved last sprint then.

@bmansurov I found the patch, but it had rebasing issues so I just abandoned it, rebased it manually, and uploaded a fresh one.

• jhobs added a comment to T147314: Add reading depth to hovercards schema (defined as time spent on page).

@bmansurov @ovasileva The problem with this approach though is that if someone opens a tab to read later, then comes back to it after any significant period of time, our depth measurement is wildly skewed. If they leave it for over 100 minutes then we won't have any useful depth measurement at all. I know I personally open several tabs all the time when reading an article in order to read them after I'm done with my current one (especially on mobile). Pausing a timer when not visible ensures we get accurate logs, fewer irrelevant data points, and it's already been done and field-tested by another team, so it's a simple implementation (basically just copy-paste).

• jhobs added a comment to T147314: Add reading depth to hovercards schema (defined as time spent on page).

@bmansurov When you updated the schema, I noticed you added pageVisibility as a property, however, the Discovery team used that API to pause the timer when the page was hidden. Given a hidden page could generate a large number (currently 19) of unusable data points, would it not make more sense to follow Discovery's lead and only log checkin time, using the pageVisibility API to pause the timer? See https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/311844/3/modules/ext.wikimediaEvents.searchSatisfaction.js for Discovery's implementation.

• jhobs changed the status of T146434: SchemaPopupsSamplingRate config variable is badly named from Open to Stalled.

Hi there @McIntireEvan, thanks for your interest in helping improve our codebase! Unfortunately, this task should have been marked "Stalled" a few weeks ago when we started working on a major rewrite of the Hovercards code, so I'm not sure there's much to be done here. There are, however, a few other tasks of similar complexity you could help us with, if you are so inclined!

Hey @leila, we're trying to line this up for this sprint, but it looks like we're still missing the following:

  1. sampling rate (coverage)
  2. definitive list of wikis to which the survey should be enabled (right now based on the description it would be eswiki only

@Jdlrobson this task has already been merged, signed off, and deployed. I think keeping this resolved and opening the bug as its own task is fine, especially since there were no mentions of multi-word titles in the design spec (I obviously still should have caught it though). We wouldn't re-open our original language switcher task if we found a new bug with it, for example. ;)

FYI, it's on our (the Reading Web Team's) radar to build Wikidata support directly into the extension. It may take a while as we're currently refactoring the extension, but just wanted to let you all know that this incident didn't go unnoticed. :)

It's a bit difficult to tell what you mean by your description. Can you be more specific about what you're expecting to see and what you're actually seeing? It's unclear which order the screenshots are in (I'm guessing left is expected).

@jhobs, isn't Hovercards disabled when the gadget is on? The problem with Wikidata yesterday was that it was serving old JS files.

• jhobs added a comment to T149801: [EPIC] Refactor Hovercards (née Popups).

We should consider adding "works on Wikidata" as a requirement. Right now Wikidata uses a gadget to make Popups work, which recently broke after some of the earlier refactoring we did on master. It will, of course, break again with the larger refactor, so we may want to think of Wikidata support early on. I think all the the gadget does is add more classes to the link selector and then call a bunch of functions manually.

We decided to proceed with option 2 in T131105#2714458. This would mean that getting a free and non-free image would require two requests. I'll be updating the description to reflect the decision shortly.
