15 March, 2012[edit]

8 March, 2012[edit]

  • In response to bugzilla:34144, decoupled MobileFrontend from total dependency on "en.m.wikipedia.org" hostname format.
    • Removed $wgMobileDomain
    • Added $wgMobileUrlTemplate for defining a hostname format that should be unique for mobile. Made usage of this optional.
    • Removed dependency on X-Device headers when generating mobile URLs. Mobile URLs will now properly be generated when using "useformat=mobile"
  • Added new API features:
    • Core action=parse has been extended with options to return pages in mobile-friendly formats.
    • prop=excerpt returns excerpts of article content either in plain text or restricted HTML.
    • action=mobileview to return page data in format suitable for mobile app/skin.
  • The MobileFrontend javascript and css files have undergone a large refactoring providing unit tests (bugzilla:30388) and various fixes that will hopefully lead to better maintainability such as using css as much as possible when it comes to sizing and positioning (see bugzilla:32175 for example).
  • Presentation fixes to reflect desktop site bugzilla:34711 and bugzilla:34686
  • Javascript has on the most part been separated from the html (see bugzilla:34422)
  • The mobile frontend extension now works without javascript disabled bugzilla:34025
  • A few minor usability improvements - search box now highlights when clicked bugzilla:19935 and the history page now redirects to the normal site bugzilla:31148
