The only documentation I can find about what is "required" for MW is about
what is required to install it, not what is required to use it.
MW uses JS in many places, and in some of those it also has backward
compatibility for no-script users, but is that always the case? Does MW
strive to be completely functional for those who disable JS?
The question is raised because in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T192241 as we expanded the reliance of one of the MW extensions (namely
AbuseFilter) on JS, we got some push back. Note that AbuseFilter also
doesn't officially announce it requires JS even though it already contains
code that would not work with JS. We are considering making JS an official
requirement for AbuseFilter and would like to know how MW core approaches
the same question.
