Update MediaInfo README with more information about how to set up locally
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

There are several post-installation steps required to actually get a working instance of MediaInfo up and running locally. These include:

  1. Create a local "Depicts" property with type: item at Special:NewProperty. I kept setting the data type to "property" instead, which causes errors.
  2. Optional but useful: add the WikibaseImport extension and use it to import entities from Wikidata

It would be good to document these steps in enough detail that a developer who is not super familiar with this project could follow along.

Tangentially related to T221717

Here's a related question – what are the type requirements for valid qualifiers if the user is creating them locally?

We'll probably want to support all eventually, but currently only item & quantity (and string, but not searchable) are supported.

Assuming this is about WikibaseMediaInfo to allow people to search for related tasks in that codebase.
