Developer environment for this wiki[edit]

I have raised a question here about creating developer-friendly images of each wiki, which people can use to create scripts and mediawiki extensions on their own PC without needing to request an account on Wikimedia Tools or their sister services. I hope an image can be available for install in one click. If you are experienced in how to make this happen, or know how it would be useful for this wiki, please respond either here or there. Thanks. :-) --Gryllida/ (talk) 23:24, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

Development environment for this wiki (take 2)[edit]

If I make a (Vagrant or Docker or VirtualBox) development for this wiki, would you be interested in including

  • 1. all gadgets or only some (if so then which)
  • 2. all extensions or only some (if so then which)
  • 3. all content or only some (if so then what part)
  • 4. all settings or only some (if so then which ones)

Also what extensions, or improvements to existing extensions, would you like to see developed if someone volunteers to do it. I know there is the 'Dialog' tools that could be installed for example - this needs lots of work and I think uses Scribunto and FlaggedRevs - is there anything else? Is there a wish list...

Thanks, --Gryllida (talk) 05:10, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

In the "obvious" column (but sometimes the obvious is easy to overlook), besides dialog, Scribunto, and FlaggedRevs, there's also DPLs. --Pi zero (talk) 12:39, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
