CommonUserInterface for MediaWiki

Provides common user interface elements and customizeable stylings.

This code is meant to be executed within the MediaWiki application context. No standalone usage is intended.

Use in a MediaWiki extension

Add "mwstake/mediawiki-component-commonuserinterface": "~3.0" to the require section of your composer.json file.

Since 3.0 explicit initialization is required. This can be archived by

  • either adding "callback": "mwsInitComponents" to your extension.json/skin.json
  • or calling mwsInitComponents(); within you extensions/skins custom callback method

See also mwstake/mediawiki-componentloader.

Components and Renderers

Default renderer types:

  • *
  • bootstrap-5

A skin may define

$GLOBALS['mwsgCommonUIComponentRendererType'] = 'bootstrap-5';

if it provides "Twitter Bootstrap V5". The "CommonUserInterface" will fall back to * of the requested renderer is not available to the chosen type.

Custom renderers

$GLOBALS['mwsgCommonUIComponentRendererRegistry']['my-custom-renderer']['button'] = '...';

Skin Slots

Default slots:

  • siteNoticeAfter: Uses hook SiteNoticeAfter to add components to any default skin
  • dataAfterContent: Uses hook SkinAfterContent to add components to any default skin

Examples:

$GLOBALS['mwsgCommonUISkinSlots']['siteNoticeAfter']['my-sitenoticeafter-toolbar'] = [
	'factory' => function() {
		return new MWStake\MediaWiki\Component\CommonUserInterface\Component\SimpleToolbar( [
			'items' => [
				new MWStake\MediaWiki\Component\CommonUserInterface\Component\SimpleDropDown( [
					'label' => new RawMessage( 'Click me!' ),
					'toggleRLModules' => [ 'my-dropdown-module' ]
				] )
			]
		] );
	}
];

$GLOBALS['mwsgCommonUISkinSlots']['skinAfterContent']['my-skinaftercontent-panel'] = [
	'factory' => function() {
		return new MWStake\MediaWiki\Component\CommonUserInterface\Component\SimplePanel( [
			'title' => new RawMessage( 'My panel' ),
			'collapsible' => true,
			'collapsed' => true,
			'expandRLModules' => [ 'my-panel-module' ]
		] );
	}
];
