Technical Update: June 24, 2015

Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Other Notable Changes

Detailed CSS updates can be found at - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.

  • Lua modules will be able to loaded from the Wikia Developers Wiki using require("Dev:ModuleName") (as opposed to require("Module:ModuleName")) so you can now share reusable Modules using the Dev wikia.
    • Bonus note: mw.loadData( 'Dev:ModuleName/data' ) is also possible - more background on this method can be found here (along with some additional discussion in the comments below).
