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 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)


User:Adfeno changed Form:Entry so as to use input type=dropdown|values from namespace=License and Template:Print license to make links based on the old Property:License entry be corrected to the corresponding license in License namespace. However, the old entries weren't updated and, as a side effect, old entries with licenses not in License namespace may appear as blank dropdown when editing with Form:Entry, or appear as non-existing page when using Template:Show. --Adfeno (talk) 14:19, 17 July 2020 (EDT)
If this change is kept, then Property:License is no longer needed and, as explained in the comment being replied, the issues that are stalling this one must be fixed in order for this one to be closed, and to better reflect the plan to support SPDX notation. --Adfeno (talk) 14:26, 17 July 2020 (EDT)
Removed #Replace-License-text-in-program-entries from the dependencies. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 13:47, 18 December 2020 (EST)
