Technical Advice IRC Meetings will not continue in 2020[edit]

The Technical Advice IRC Meeting was a weekly support meeting for volunteer developers on #wikimedia-tech connect. It took place every Wednesday from 4 to 5 pm UTC, with two full-time developers available to help you with your questions about MediaWiki, gadgets, tools and more.

The team at Wikimedia Deutschland has decided to stop having weekly Technical Advice IRC Meetings (TAIM) at #wikimedia-tech after the final meeting on December 18th. In other words, Technical Advice IRC Meetings will not continue in 2020. We realized that the regular IRC meeting format has achieved the limits of its reach, and it is time for us to think about other means to better support as many volunteer developers as possible contributing to Wikimedia software.

At WMDE we’ll be dedicating our efforts in 2020 to constantly improve documentation of our products, including Wikidata and Wikibase, to allow easier usage and contribution. Our engineering teams are also exploring new possibilities to support volunteer developers in a more asynchronous way than regular IRC meetings. If you have any suggestions for this, please let us know on our talk page.

We'd like to send the warmest thank you to all the people who hosted TAIM meetings, all participants asking and answering questions, and all supporters of TAIM over the years. Have a great seasonal break and see you around in 2020!

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.
