I have some general Parsoid questions I hoped someone here might help me
The background is that we are doing some preliminary work looking at how
Text-to-Speech might work on Wikipedia (there will be some info online in
the coming weeks).
One detail of this is that you might occasionally have to highlight
specific words/sentences that are dealt with differently (e.g. World War
III -> World War 3). It is still unclear how frequent such things would be
but if they are very frequent then there would likely be push-back from the
community if this is stored in the normal wikitext.
In this case we would have to store the markup outside of the wikitext and
any viewing/editing of it would have to happen in some user enabled
extension of the normal environment.
And here we come to the question.
1. If we would have to store this markup outside of the wikitext could this
be done by storing the individual parsoid-data-units?
2. Would it be possible to add these units to the existing parsoid-data
(which gets loaded from the wikitext) when loading a page?
3. Would it be possible to detect which of these units would be affected by
edits to the wikipage?
This is still in the early stages so mainly we are looking at what
possibilities exist should we need them. Using Parsoid data was something
we thought of as a light-weight solution to having to store a synced copy
of the wikitext+additional markup.
