Local Media Support for Wikibase
Posted on 2020-10-05 by Jeroen De Dauw
You can now use media files from your wiki inside of Wikibase.
We created a new data type for Wikibase that enables working with media files defined on your wiki. Previously Wikibase only supported working with media files from Wikimedia Commons. The new data type, called "Media file" works exactly like "Commons media file", but then for your local media files. The "Media file" data type is available via our new extension Wikibase Local Media.
Wikibase Local Media was developed for, and funded by, Rhizome. It is available as free open source software and can be installed on any Wikibase wiki that runs Wikibase version 1.34 or 1.35. A huge thanks to Rhizome for funding this key functionality.
