Wiki live previews, and visual editors

What is necessary to implement live previews of edits, and visual editors in the arch wiki?

Here is what I have found thus far:
- This appears to be the relevant code for the wiki: https://github.com/archlinux/archwiki. Closed pull requests show some example mediawiki version updates, but more than a version update may be necessary to support this.
- Wikimedia's blog on how they designed live previews and visual editing: https://blog.wikimedia.org/2018/04/18/h … wikipedia/
- Mediawiki's page on live previews: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Requests … ve_preview

I'm not sure what you think has to be done. You can already try to enable "Show previews without reloading the page" under Special:Preferences -> Editing.

To use wikEd, you could try the Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey version, but User:YourUsername/common.js should also work I think.
