Item9528: Loading foswikilib kills jquery.foswiki lib

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Urgent Closed Engine    
At some point we have to take a stand and remove foswikilib.js all together. It really doesn't serve a purpose anymore right now.

What makes it worse is that it competes with jquery.foswiki.js in creating the global foswiki namespace. Only by accident does one or the other win. The current js dependencies say nothing about their relationship to each other. This is causing arbitrary trouble, i.e. due to their internal caching of foswiki.getPreference().

So let's kill foswikilib.js.

Any objections?

So, just by grepping the sources: Are the only ones still using that. The first and last one should most likely be fixed in this bug, we can let the (tm)wiki ones die, and Arthur will surely fix SlionSkin.

So I don't see why we should keep it any longer. We decided to use JQuery for 1.1, so be it.

I will keep foswikilib.js in the core to properly deprecate it. so we don't produce a 404 for some non-core plugins not yet fixed. The non-core plugins affected like FormPlugin need a touch of themselves to use the new LIBJS dependency maker. For now PatternSkin, JQueryPlugin and TwistyPlugin will be touched. TwistyContrib is unmaintained code nowhere used anymore.
