Wikimedia sites are made by one of the largest online communities of knowledge gathers.

Let's make it easier for folks using WordPress to embed Wikimedia content in their sites.
This session proposes putting together a minimal viable product that would allow WordPress users to copy and paste a Wikimedia URL into the editor in a WordPress installation to expand an in-line preview. I'd like to discuss the design and implementation of such a feature (what do we need to include for attribution, how much content do we display inline?) and the technical underpinnings of APIs and implementation details.
