Countdown timer

(task of 14:42, 7 February 2020 (EST))

David, we can implement a low-precision static timer using wikicode, but to add a good real-time timer we depend on JavaScript.
Our instance of MediaWiki already uses JavaScript for various reasons, so it would be good to keep using it, ensuring its compatibility with a stable version of LibreJS during testing phase. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 15:31, 7 February 2020 (EST)
I don't know how to write JS so I have to assign this task to you. Also, the "Our day and time is right now" in https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Template:IRC_text is static, it must be converted to real-time, otherwise the template will show a mixture of static and real-time time. However, I think we should make a static countdown timer first of all, and then a real-time countdown timer that can be reverted if LibreJS reject it at some point. --David Hedlund (talk) 22:58, 8 February 2020 (EST)
Task completed, the new countdown appears on the Home Page. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 13:58, 14 February 2020 (EST)
