    I made a page for a new extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:TimezoneConverter

    It (and the extension) still need lots of work. It seems there are issues on some devices with timezone abbreviations (e.g. 'AWST' gets shown as 'GMT+8' on my Android). I don't want to switch to Moment.js, but maybe that's the easiest complete database.

    It's Monday morning and I'm spelunking through OOUI code looking for some particular things to help fit OOUI into jQuery UI — it's sort of working, and things feel like they might end up working alright. It's fun working on old bits and bringing them up to date (although, perhaps next year this new code will be rewritten in Vue, I'm not sure). This is for the insert-link dialog in WikiEditor, a thing that I find myself using pretty often. It's never felt as good as the link-inserter in Dokuwiki, although I can't now remember why I think that, it's been years since I touched Dokuwiki. Maybe not being restricted to prefix searching was part of it (did Dokuwiki search on any subpage prefix as well?).

    It's a beautiful day here, for day 3 of Wikimania. I'm sitting outside the cemetery cafe, working on the extsjsonuploader tool: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T288920

    Yesterday I deployed the new thing that creates a JSON file of the same extension.json data, which means a version-checking thing for mwcli will be possible now (e.g. mwcli extensions:outdated --wiki foo to show a list of current and available versions of extensions for any wiki).

    I was just wondering why there are lots of old people coming and going from here, but I guess it's just that it's Monday morning and most people have work to do. I feel rather blessed to be able to work from wherever I can sit in the shade.

    This café is on OpenStreetMap, but there aren't enough details, so I'll fix that up in a minute. There's a huge amount of other mapping to do around here too, but I think that's going to have to wait for another day. I've got a bunch of family graves that I want to get photos of too: https://archives.org.au/H.M._Wilson_Archives_graves#Karrakatta.2C_Perth
