Paste image from clipboard Extension
Open, LowPublic


Author: christoph.wilhelms

I have seen the TWiki JavaPasteAddOn , wich provides a button to paste images from clipboard directly into the article.
What does it do:

  • Start a signed Applet.
  • Get Image Data from clipboard
  • Greate a JPEG
  • Upload JPEG into the Wiki-Software
  • Embed <code>[[Image:WhatEver.jpg]]</code> into Wiki-Page

Could we get this as MediaWiki Extension? The Source of the TWiki Add on can be found here:

It might be better to raise this as a seperate extension request, because it is not only useful for the FCKeditor extension.

VisualEditor includes this feature since MediaWiki 1.30 (T39932). It works in its "new wikitext editor" too.
