Create a Lua infobox template for books that use wikidata metadata based on work/edition
Closed, InvalidPublic


Many Wikipedias use template:Infobox book that contains metadata

However this is stored on wiki, and not on wikidata. Ideally a new template should use the work/edition distinction and fetch the data from Wikidata, according to the fields defined on

Ideally this data should also be used by Wikisource and eventually by Commons.

The current lua modules can call the pertinent data into templates, so not understanding why another module makes a difference, or improvement.

I believe this is nothing the Wikidata team can do at the moment. Can you please edit and clarify the description?

  • It was the author of this task who closed it.
  • The task description was not very specific and actionable to begin with.
  • This is something the Wikisource community can better manage on-wiki. I don't think they need this ticket to be able to do what the task asks for.
