Enable VisualEditor
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The ability to use some sort of VisualEditor is a hugely requested feature - for obvious reasons. It significantly lowers the barrier of entry required to contribute anything more than text to completely new users.

VisualEditor is not the most straightforward of extensions to setup, however. It has a complex requirement - Parsoid. We need to work out how to implement Parsoid and VisualEditor in our setup where we have automated wiki creations and thousands of wikis.

Parsoid is now bundled with MediaWiki 1.35, as is VisualEditor. I suppose that will make it significantly easier to install.

Here's hoping... might still require some sort of RESTBase setup because of the size of ShoutWiki. I intend to test this soon, but, currently busy IRL (dissertation year 😢)
