Expose search through intent
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Expose search through intent so other apps could get to Wikipedia via search.
(Currently, another app would need to know the correct URL (build it based on page title) to open a page in the Wikipedia app.)

This would probably be through a new URL schema, like wikipedia://
and should have ways to specify a wiki site (using language, e.g. "en", "fr", "de", ...) and the search term, of course.
