What are we working on?
Code Cleanup
Wouldn't you like to see AjaxLogin on your favorite MediaWiki project? Know someone who might want to use PrivateDomains for their company wiki? Help us to clean up the code and get it released into MediaWiki git repositories!
Optimization
Experienced with code optimization? Is profiling enabled in each of your wikis? Help us to make the code faster.
Translations
Tired of seeing English messages in your Chinese wiki? Wish that your special pages list was completely in your language instead of the wiki's content language? Help us to translate all of Wikia's awesome features into your language!
Documentation
Officially the bug number one of MediaWiki: documentation is out-of-date and incomplete. Sadly this is the case with Wikia's code too. But you can document the code and submit your patches to Wikia in order to improve the code quality!
Merging Wikia changes to Core MediaWiki
Wikia / MediaWiki code merge. Whenever possible, Wikia should only be modifying core to create hooks or bugfixes and those should be committed upstream to MediaWiki. This merge is to bring our codebases as closely in-line as possible.
Code Review
Code Review Look at and review the code that is being coded for Wikia. We are human beings and make mistakes too, so point them out to make Wikia better!
What can I do to help?
Write a new feature or extension
Take your coding skills and write a feature for every Wikia to use!
Suggest a feature
Have a brilliant feature idea that you think everyone would love? Add it to the list!
Enhance existing things
Is your passion perfection? Work with us to make free culture more approachable!
Get Started
We'll help developers help the community! We can get interested developers set up with test facilities, so you can write a feature and have everyone see it soon.
Current community project
We would love some help porting our last bits of YUI code to jQuery so that we can stop having two libraries at once. This has the potential to really clean up the code & make logged-in users download much less JavaScript (20% of the page-weight of the first page for logged-in users is YUI) which in turn means faster page loads! If you would like to help out (especially if you have experience with YUI and/or jQuery), please dive right in on the Removing YUI page!
