Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Wikisource/Diacritics editing tool

< Community Wishlist Survey 2019‎ | Wikisource

 ◄ Back to Wikisource  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!


Français: Un outil pour plus de diacritiques.
  • Problem: I't difficult and time-consuming to find Unicode for unusual characters and to build characters that have no Unicode (i. e. q̃)
    Français: Il est difficile et fastidieux de rechercher Unicode pour des caractères inhabituels et de créer des caractères sans Unicode ((i. e. q̃)
  • Who would benefit: all wikisource contributors
    Français: Tous les contributeurs wikisource
  • Proposed solution: it's possible to build a gadget to manipulate diacritics only (using standard string normalize property, decompose then compose)
    Français: Il est possible de créer un gadget pour manipuler uniquement les signes diacritiques (à l'aide de la propriété de normalisation de chaîne standard, décomposer puis composer)
  • More comments: A running draft tool to edit diacritics is running into it.wikisource.
    Français: it.wikisource est en train d'élaborer un brouillon pour éditer les signes diacritiques.

DiscussionEdit

@DChan (WMF): Any thoughts on this idea? Kaldari (talk) 18:38, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

A tool for Unicode IVS input is probably also good-to-have? C933103 (talk) 08:09, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kaldari: Hmm, there are many different sets of diacritics, across different scripts. Collecting and maintaining that data would be significant work. On the other hand, we don't want to end up with many versions of this tool with different hard-coded sets of diacritics.
To avoid this extra burden, it may be worth extending the jQuery.IME rules format so that a rule set can specify a list of labelled buttons, each of which performs one of the substitutions in the rule set. In particular, its IPA-SIL rule set already contains a definition of the diacritic substitutions used in the it.wikisource script. DChan (WMF) (talk) 21:18, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
