Life hack: Working with production content in your local wiki

Jon Robson-2
I've been meaning to document this for a while.
If you're finding yourself visiting Special:Export/Import often for the
purpose of MediaWiki development there is a much better way to get content
 into your local wiki for testing purposes.

This short video explains how MobileFrontend extension provides tooling to
help you debug live on-wiki content via $wgMFContentProviderClass [1]

Hope it saves someone lots of time!
