Hello and welcome to the Technical Advice IRC Meeting - the weekly support meeting for volunteer developers on #wikimedia-tech connect!

The meeting takes place every Wednesday from 3 to 4 pm UTC.

Every Wednesday, two full-time developers are available to help you with all your questions about MediaWiki, gadgets, tools and more! This can be anything from "how to get started" over "who would be the best contact for X" to specific questions on your project.

We will try to help you as good as we can.

All questions are welcome! If you know already what you would like to discuss or ask, please add your topic to the next meeting, so that we can prepare the meeting or ask an expert for your issue to join if needed. Of course, it is always possible to check in spontaneously!

We love goats.
We love cats, too.

Want to visit your meeting in person. Question: 3D / html5 / WebGL in Wikipedia / Wikimedia - status, possibilities @MichaelRieseBerlin
Andreg-p: I need help for the Popups extension. I'm working on the phabricator ticket phab:T208758 and want to enable popups for mathematical expressions. I can generate the information for the popup via a SpecialPage.php. However, it turns out that the popup extension seems to avoid showing special pages. So I wonder if there is a reason why special pages should not be shown via popups. I try to enable the extension to do so, but in the end, the Popups extension uses Extension:TextExtracts and this extension itself fails to extract the text from special pages. Now I'm lost. I think there is a reason for this behaviour? Andreg-p (talk) 07:47, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

preannounced topics[edit]

If I can get unbanned on IRC following an enwiki socking incident, I'd like to ask about using the oauth api to get user ID and username in python. If not, might try Wikipedia:WP:Discord RhinosF1 (talk) 17:14, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
You may find most of the answer to this question in wikitech:Help:Toolforge/My first Flask OAuth tool. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 22:47, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Additionally, if there's time left: setting ref="noopener" on OOUI buttons when using target="_blank" for an external domain. It's recommended on Wikimedia Security Team/Security reviews/What we are looking for, but doesn't seem possible.
