Bundle PageImages with MediaWiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

PageImages extension is super useful API module in getting information about images in an article, but even more so, getting the most appropriate image that represents the article.

As we move towards widespread knowledge sharing tools within the wikimedia echosphere and tools development, having this API capability in 3rd party wikis is incredibly useful. It would be great if we can spread the ability to allow tools to fetch that visual information from all wikis we develop.

Supports MySQL, SQLite, and Postgres (if there are schema changes)

I don't see any schema changes in this extension. Also it seems to work for me locally with PostgreSQL.

Great! Thank you, @Anomie.

This should be ok to bundle.
