Hovercards: Display popups across wikis (interwiki popups)
Open, LowPublic


(Quoting Pyb from https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Beta_Features/Hovercards&workflow=ru7lut84ni79e2oe)

On Wikimedia Commons, Hovercards displays an extract of a Commons page. And doesn't work on [[:en:toto]], [[:fr:toto]]...

It would be interesting to display an extract of a wikipedia page.

This would be a super super cool feature.

Main technical issue I see is would be mapping the interwiki prefix to the API url. Especially since we can nest prefixes ([[d:n:b:w:User:Legoktm]] is a valid link).

After that, we just use JSONP to grab the extract/pageimage from the other wiki!

We'd need some design input on this before moving forward.

Just to be bold: there's an ongoing discussion into it.source about hovercards, it has been dreamed a "nested popup", based on a wikidata link; first popup level would list wikidata links to projects about the wikidata entity linked, second level would show the interwiki hovercard of any linked page.
