Hey there Kristof!
Thanks for sharing info about WalkHub. (For context: Matt is the lead
developer on the GuidedTour extension, and I'm the product manager on our
Growth team, which has been its heaviest user.)
I tried the donation tour you made, and it's pretty cool. It's interesting
how it feels a bit like an interactive video.

To be honest, I'm not sure right now if/how it can
fit into our plans.
Of course right now we have a different architecture and tour format
Also, we have some things that may or may not have equivalents in
fired by part of our codebase to know when the tour is ready to proceed.
For example, the VisualEditor can tell us if the page is now save-able, so
we know whether to point to the save button, regardless of how the page
became save-able (typing, bolding some text with the toolbar, etc.).
Matt's summary is about right.
It would be huge if we could enable Wikimedians to create tours just by
walking through an interface as they normally would, and it'd be
interesting to hear more about how to you accomplish this. Right now the
code for creating tours is really simplified... but it's still writing
I think a cool first step might just be sharing some feedback between the
projects about lessons learned, enhancement ideas, etc. Maybe I could give
you a list of tours we're running to try, and we could do the same for you?
I already noticed a few things I like about WalkHub, and a few things
GuidedTour does that it doesn't seem to yet.
Thanks for reaching out to us on the list. :)
