This is a high-level overview of MediaWiki development, including links to the key documents, resources and tools available to MediaWiki developers. It is written for skilled LAMP developers who have experience using MediaWiki.

  • If you want to use Wikimedia web APIs, visit Web APIs hub (work in progress).
  • If you want to contribute to developing Wikimedia software, see New Developers.
  • For an introductory guide to developing MediaWiki and MediaWiki extensions, read How to become a MediaWiki hacker.
  • If you want to collaborate with other third-party MediaWiki users, the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group (MWStake) is a MediaWiki user group consisting of MediaWiki developers, system administrators, users, consultants, and hosting providers.

Преглед

MediaWiki е софтуер, който задвижва Уикипедия, сродните проекти и хиляди други уикита по целия свят.

MediaWiki is written in the PHP programming language[1]. It uses jQuery as the client JavaScript library.

MediaWiki is primarily written for the LAMP platform[2] and runs on most operating systems. MediaWiki primarily uses the MySQL and MariaDB database servers.[3]

Development happens in an open source style[4], is largely coordinated online, and supported by the Wikimedia Foundation, though volunteer community developers play a huge part as well.

  • Development discussion happens on various mailing lists and IRC channels. The main developer list is wikitech-l. The main developer IRC channels are #mediawiki and #wikimedia-dev.
  • Source code is managed using the Git version control system.[5]
  • Code review for most projects is performed on Gerrit . Follow this tutorial to set up Git and Gerrit in order to submit patches.
  • Bug reports and tasks for most projects are managed on Phabricator.
  • Developers extending or interfacing with MediaWiki (instead of working on the core code) have several convenient extension points, including the API, the Hooks system and Skins – see the #Extending MediaWiki section of this page for an overview.

Architecture

Sub-systems

  • API – MediaWiki's API provides direct, high-level access to the data contained in the MediaWiki databases.
  • ContentHandler – MediaWiki's framework for supporting custom types of page content.
  • Database access – an overview of using databases in MediaWiki, including a brief guide to the database abstraction layer.
  • Job queue – MediaWiki's framework for processing long-running tasks asynchronously.
  • Messages API – MediaWiki's framework for providing localized application messages with PHP or JavaScript.

Extending MediaWiki

MediaWiki has been designed to allow for modification without changing the "core code". This makes it easy to update to a new version of MediaWiki without having to manually merge in old extension code changes. There are six main extension points that allow developers to change or extend what MediaWiki can do. The extension points are:

  • API – access the data and metadata of MediaWiki instances through its web API.
  • Hooks – every time a given event happens, do something.
  • Parser Functions – create a new command like: {{#if:...|...|...}}.
  • Skins – change the look and feel of MediaWiki.
  • Special Pages – add a new special page.
  • Tag Extensions – create a new tag like: <newtag>...</newtag>.
  • Extending wiki markup – add a parser hook to modify the content of wikitext.

Бележки

  1. Not all of MediaWiki is written in PHP. Some supporting tools are written in other languages, including batch files, shell scripts, makefiles and Python.
  2. MediaWiki runs on most platforms that can support PHP, however, the lack of certain utilities or operating system features may limit the functionality or performance of MediaWiki on non-LAMP platforms.
  3. MediaWiki has support for DBMS other than MySQL and MariaDB, including Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Microsoft SQL Server.
  4. Developers are a mix of volunteers and paid staff (or contractors) for various organizations. For a full list of who works on the MediaWiki code, read the Developers article.
  5. Browse the source code and revisions of code repositories at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/diffusion/ or download the source code to your system by using Gerrit.
