Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Editing/Continue development of wikitext syntax highlighter (CodeMirror extension)

◄ Back to Editing


  • Problem: As a result of #6 wish in 2016 Community Wishlist Survey, the new wikitext syntaxt highlighter, aka CodeMirror extension, was introduced as beta feature. But the development is far from done. There is for example no support for RTL wikis yet and there is still a handful of bugs to solve.
  • Who would benefit: article editors, template editors
  • Proposed solution: Continue development. Add support for RTL wikis. Solve bugs (see Phabricator tickets below).
  • More comments: Article editors, template editors.

  •   Support A useful feature, but last time I tried it it tended to be sluggish, so optimizing it further might be a good thing to do.— Luchesar • T/C 13:40, 11 December 2017 (UTC)[]
