Civilpedia Bug Tracker

This is a list of active, and solved, or wontfix issues for Civilpedia.
Development help is welcome! Please reach out to @joule if interested.  
Feedback & Improvements
  • Use SMS not email, with active hours
  • Tag suggestions are not updating correctly
  • Search sometimes omits obvious results
  • Web Push API is a terrible notifications standard, deprecate and use SMS instead.
  • Write civilpedia getting started and help guide.
  • Upvote button for comments.
  • Generate a QR code for pages and posts.
  • Edit collisions are not detected on pages --this could lead to corruption. Maybe we should use git to track changes and cache the result using mariadb instead of live-editing mariadb? This could get hairy...
  • Syntax is not highlighted in editor, even though I followed quill’s docs specifically.
  • Copying text copies background color too
  • When making a new section sometimes everything in the following paragraph gets made boldface (wtf?)
  • Timestamps are shown as server time, not localtime.
  • Permissions for making secret content.
  • Configurable theme color?
Ideas and Wishlist:
  • Embedded pages / internal links. Pinterest's way of doing it looks pretty good.
  • Continuous auto-save.
  • Recompile highlight.js to support arduino code.
Tech Debt:
  • Serve images compressed so they take up less bandwidth.
  • Script to set up database automagically.
  • Make variable names more standardized and sensible.
  • Script to set file system read/write permissions.
  • A way to change all instances of a user name, and to safely delete users.
  • You cannot log out of a browser without logging out of every device.
