We have lot of documentation starting from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/ResourceLoader
One thing which is lacking, would be a step by step tutorial to build an extension from scratch that will just load a css and a js.
This is a documentation bug blocking bug 1.
Maybe Danielle Benoit could help?
I'm not sure it is really lacking.
These two are both pretty well documented. ResourceLoader takes a lot of maintenance and set-up steps out of the developers hands.
Especially for a new extension all it is is this:
1. Registering in wgResourceModules
2. Loading with OutputPage::addModules
Both of which are described on on mediawiki.org. Just now I've rephrased some of that and moved it here: [[mw:ResourceLoader/Developing_with_ResourceLoader]] (#Registering and #Loading_module respectively).
The other things (debugging features, special CSS anotations etc.) are optional, and were already documented under /Features and Developing_with_ResourceLoader.
See also bug 37805 which is about writing an example extension in mediawiki/extensions/examples
* bug 37805 has been fixed
* https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/ResourceLoader/Developing_with_ResourceLoader has been improved during Wikimania 2012
Indeed, thanks a lot! :-]
