Showcase/inspire: VisualEditor media search
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Dan Garry mentioned VE's media search/browse facility as a showcase item for search and discovery, suggested talk to @MSchottlender-WMF

I think he is referring to Edit in VE, cilck Insert > Media, enter a term to search on.

The API query is
action=query generator=search in File: namespace, returning prop=imageinfo details.

These showcases should be selected and explained in a way that third party developers can learn from them and reuse them. Just checking: could the same APIs to search media in Commons be used to replicate this feature in a non-MediaWiki environment?

The Web-APIs-Hub project is dead hence mass-declining its tasks to reflect reality. It might be superseded by a Developer Portal in the future.
