Allow restbase url to be set directly in Citoid extension, overwriting the VE url.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Right now the Citoid extension relies on Citoid being behind restbase, and uses the url gotten from the VE config. However, it would also be helpful to expose a restbase url to the config for future use, such as Wikidata config. (i.e. on mw.config on wikidata right now, wgCitoidConfig = {
citoidServiceUrl :""} which is a deprecated url.

The other use case is people wanting to use citoid's public API on their own wiki, see:
