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

The meeting takes place

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!

Next meetings on Wednesday, December 12 2018[edit]

We love goats.
We love cats, too.

Join the meeting: #wikimedia-techconnect. If you are new to IRC, here are instructions for how it works.

  • Roy Smith. I'm interested in phab:T72239. See this thread on en for some background. My original thought (before I knew null revisions existed) was to query both the revision and log tables and interpolate the events from them. Looking at the two approaches, I can see advantages to either. The display time interpolation doesn't require changing how data is written, but it does require more database queries at display time. I've been looking to get involved in mediawiki development, and this seems like it might be a good starter project. I'm a recently retired software engineer, most recently with Google. I don't always like to admit it, but I have done some PHP development in my past :-)

  • For phabricator:T200814, we might need something like a {{USERLANGUAGE}} magic word. Such a magic word has been requested for ages (phabricator:T4085), and would in the past have caused problems with the cache; I would appreciate any information on how feasible it would be to introduce this today. --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 16:27, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Accessing the database during extension registration, using OOUI icons in CSS in a skin and dealing with hiding headers provided for screen readers. Mainframe98 talk 18:40, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Wikibase: Starting with a fresh Wikibase 1.30 docker instance, I'm trying to align properties to external RDF vocabularies. It looks like canonicalUriProperty as documented in options.wiki is what I'm looking for, but testing that by:
  1. Creating properties P21 and P22 with data type string, and P23 with data type external-id
  2. Changing extensions/Wikibase/repo/config/Wikibase.default.php to have 'formatterUrlProperty' => 'P21', 'canonicalUriProperty' => 'P22'
  3. Giving P23 a statement of P21 = https://example.org/url-formatter/$1 and P22 = https://example.org/canonicalURI/$1
  4. Creating a new item Q16 with statements P23 = 123

... results in Q16 getting the URL formatted in HTML to point to https://example.org/url-formatter/123, but not showing any corresponding mapping for P22 when I request the RDF representation in Turtle. What am I missing? Thanks! Dan scott (talk) 14:04, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
