I agree with you on that. I did make that mistake while writing down my proposal at first, but Sumanah corrected me early on and advised me to limit the scope to 6 weeks.

Which is why I've decided to limit my project to "Make Wikidata usable on mobile devices."
If that's sorted well in time, I'd love to add some basic edit functionality too but I've kept it in the "if time permits" category.

Sounds very good to me already!

I'd like to mention though that "make Wikidata usable on mobile devices" and
"make Wikidata editable without JavaScript" are two pretty separate concerns.
While I would love to see the latter happening too, it is not a requirement for
getting the former to work.

So, my advice is: make sure you don't end up trying to do two projects at once.
If there is time for the non-JS editing stuff, great, but if there isn't, a
complete non-JS *view* without full editing capabilities would be sufficient for
supporting the mobile version.

Another note: Daniel Werner and Henning Snater are the people most involved with
designing CSS and JS for the Wikibase UI.

Good luck and have fun,
