Closed, DeclinedPublic


Now we have Web APIs hub it should be the landing page for MediaWiki APIs (plural). Please note:

  • API:Main_page will still exist as the introduction to the MediaWiki action API (in fact it will redirect to the renamed page API:Action API), so all bookmarks and external links to it will continue to go to the same place.
  • There's nothing special about the name "Main_page" in a namespace.

Concerns raised at E50: IRC office hour: Web APIs Hub (phab tasks coming):

  • Web APIs hub focuses on API use on Wikimedia sites
    • well, yes. Third-party developers want to access free open knowledge on Wikimedia sites. @Spage is happy to showcase articles about using APIs on other sites
    • Task: clarify what API modules are part of core MediaWiki and which are extensions.
  • Task: Navigation on Web APIs hub needs to be improved, need "a compact overview / list of APIs" (part of T93062)
