GoogleTrans gadget now recoded

Hi there,

Last year you mentioned to me in a post that you had looked at my GoogleTrans gadget and it was old and ugly code that you wouldn't work with.

This is to alert you that I have recoded quite a bit of the gadget now. It is a Javascript Object now, the code to determine the word under the cursor, and whether the cursor is in the selected text has been completely rewritten.

Hey Endo999, glad to hear that!
I took a look at the code and while it's clearly an improved version over the previous one, there are still some things to fix. JSHint, the JavaScript code quality tool used for MediaWiki core and many MediaWiki extension, produces the following errors about the current version of the code (161 erros in total):

A few of these might be invalid or subjective (mostly the "bad line breaking" ones), but a lot of them appear to be valid. Additionally you might want to familiarize yourself with MediaWiki's JavaScript coding conventions — while they, too, are somewhat subjective, they're widely accepted in the MediaWiki developer community and for a good reason.
Some additional thoughts:
  • Do you really need to explicitly check for certain browsers (e.g. Konqueror, Netscape)? As per Compatibility, only certain modern browsers receive Grade A support. JavaScript isn't even loaded for certain ancient browsers (IE6 & 7 at least) anymore, so chances are your code will never be executed in these browsers anymore.
  • You may want to use jquery.cookie or mediawiki.cookie (I think the latter one is the recommended one) ResourceLoader module instead for the cookie stuff instead of rolling out your own logic.
  • Finding X and Y position (GT.SCfindPosX/GT.SCfindPosY) can likely be done via jQuery. jQuery is one of those few things always guaranteed to be available in the MediaWiki environment (but some specific jQuery plugins, such as the aforementioned cookie-related ones, are not always available and have to be explicitly loaded). --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 17:00, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

I've had a look at your error listing, and made changes to the code to reduce the number of LINT errors. I tried out JSINT and it is too finicky to actually use. But I will try to get the style better than it was before.

Endo999 (talk) 04:23, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

I finally got JSHINT to work in my Notepad++ and allowed for "tolerate messy white space". I only have 6 errors now, most of which have to do with nonascii characters in regular expressions. (I'm going to keep these because they make GoogleTrans work with Chinese/Japanese characters). Thanks for telling me about JSHINT. I will definitely run javascript through it in the future. I've updated the gadget source file with the JSHINTed javascript source. Endo999 (talk) 07:02, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

WikiIndex eMail

Have You ever tried to get Your email verified after we solved the email-problem on WikiIndex? --Manorainjan 17:49, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

My email has been confirmed on WikiIndex since early March 2009, so I'm not sure what you're referring to, but it's probably a more recent issue, so I haven't experienced it. --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 08:37, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Social Tools Integration with Flow

Hi, Would any of the Social Tools extension work with Flow extension? For example WikiForum, VoteNY? I could not find Flow compatibility infomration anywhere. I missed it, would appreciate a pointer.

Thanks, TitusiMW — Preceding unsigned comment added by TitusiMW (talkcontribs) 19:03, 28 February 2017

There is no explicit support for Flow. But fear not, like Extension:LiquidThreads, Flow is DOA. It hasn't been actively developed since October 2015 and it was disabled on the English Wikipedia in November 2016. --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 11:30, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
