MW 1.36.0 bug (T283244)

Currently there's a bug in MW 1.36.0 which breaks SMW JavaScript while minification: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T283244

A possible workaround might be, changing $wgResourceLoaderDebug = true; in LocalSettings.php. But I'm not sure if this is a good idea for production. So I will be patient until T283244 is fixed. :)

Is now fixed with MW 1.36.1! 🙂

I needed to enhance composer.local.json:

    "require": {
        "mediawiki/semantic-media-wiki": "~3.2"

    "extra": {
	    "merge-plugin": {
		    "include": [

Without the extra section I broke the OATHAuth extension (bundled with MW 1.31+).

Update version used

I know there is a blurb about adding the most recent version to the composer file, but would it hurt to have the most recent version number 3.2 in the example?

I feel like this article is the go to for most people, some of whom may not be very experienced.

The syntax highlighting comes with pre formatting. Thus template content is not rendered. I hope most people make the correct assumption or just update the page manually
