TPE DOM/Date time input types

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

This project is to enable the feature on Desktop that HTML input fields should contain a date or time or allow users to select a week in a year.

The project aims to provide basic input/pickers (date, month, time, date time, and week) for web authors and at the same time to meet HTML standard criteria including "Step", and "Max/Min".

Other than the functions listed above, the project shall also take care of localization (incl. the different format per locale) and accessibility (Input = Cursor Only, Cursor+Keyboard, or Keyboard only).

Last but not least, as per the current scope, only Gregorian calendar is considered.

Note

Features landed on master will be pref-off, if the l10n integration is not done yet for that specific picker. Once it gets l10n part done, we will pref-on it on nightly /developer-edition.

Issues DONE

Issue Description Status Comments/Corresponding Action
Identify scope Bug 1280654 and owner CLDR access needed for both front-end and platform module DONE Discuss on bug 1280654; Target by Aug/M.
Front-end architecture plan Identify front-end reviewer and get architecture plan reviewed DONE
Layout architecture plan Identify layout reviewer and get architecture plan reviewed DONE
UX spec lock-down Get sign-off in the critique DONE https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/237UTNHS8#/screens/171579739
Project master schedule (Proposal) proposal for 2016H2 DONE Living schedule for 20162H available in https://goo.gl/wwLYf3 (permission required)
Project master schedule master plan sign off DONE
Determine locale for the date/time Options: 1. Browser UI locale 2. User preferred locale DONE decision changed to (1). Reason: it's part of the browser UI and as such it should stay consistent with browser similarly to how file opening UI, printing UI etc. stays. It interacts with the website, but it's part of the application.
Does the feature need to support non-E10s ? single process mode DONE Yes. Necessary.
Moving advanced functions of time picker to later phase 1. Follow-up bugs creation 2. Schedule in the master plan DONE front-end : 1301281 1301284 1301302

Platform: 1301295 1301304 1301306 1301308 1301310 1301312 Shall add/schedule these to section #5 of the master plan in the workshop (Schedule revisiting will be the tasks after retrospect)

Working model with 3rd party QA and revisit QA plan in our master plan Done Synced with SV during the week of Sep12. Now we have test plan (https://wiki.mozilla.org/QA/DateTimeInputTypes) and test cases draft
Revisit master schedule Based on our learning of time picker MVP, the current master plan is way too optimistic. Let's alter after time picker MVP landed Done Latest update on https://goo.gl/wwLYf3 (permission required). In short, next milestone is targeting on landing date picker MVP (w/o) l10n before firefox53 branches to aurora. Still pref-off for its purpose is not for direct end user to try at that moment.
Do we need keyboard navigation on all the pickers? This is mostly for a11y. Input field already supports the keys (up/down) to increment or decrement. Maybe only for date picker is good enough. Done 2nd priority
Revisit pref on/off plan. We may want to roll out to beta/release incrementally, w/o having all types ready. Done Release date and time types as these are the most common ones
Decision on descoping month picker Similar reason as to time picker Done 2nd priority
