Description

VisualEditor is a project to create a reliable, full-featured rich-text or "visual" HTML editor for the Web. Though VisualEditor itself is an HTML editor, it is integrated into platforms for use there, primary in MediaWiki-General with the VisualEditor-MediaWiki integration, used in conjunction with the Parsoid parsing service to provide the HTML+RDFa.

The VisualEditor team are guided by our current priorities, against which we evaluate all suggested tasks. You can join use at our weekly open triage meetings if you think we should work on a particular task and want to explain why.

Our projects are arranged as follows:

  • VisualEditor – Anything related to VisualEditor, including related extensions.

TK-999 added a comment to T243868: VisualEditor ignores autogenerated parameter info for templates without TemplateData.

I think this is an un-intended side-effect of rEVED8fd621a. We could change the check on line 337 to only ignore the response if no param docs were returned.

The table selection update is incorrect, because we're calling tx.translateRange with excludeInsertion=false, but there should always be excludeInsertion=true for a table.

Krinkle added a comment to T243791: Upgrade karma and related packages to latest version in libraries, once MediaWiki upgrades.

Hm.. aside from VisualEditor I don't think we have any executable test code that runs both in and outside MediaWiki context. And even that one is limited in compat risk to QUnit itself (not karma-qunit). MW core might take longer to port (and there's other work on-going in that area with higher short/mid-term priority),
