É uma sinopse de alto nível do desenvolvimento do MediaWiki, incluindo hiperligações para os principais documentos, recursos e ferramentas disponíveis para os programadores do MediaWiki. Está escrito para programadores qualificados LAMP que têm experiência na utilização do MediaWiki.


O MediaWiki é o software da Wikipédia, dos projetos relacionados com ela e de milhares de wikis em todo o mundo.

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.

The main developer list is wikitech-l. The main developer IRC channel is #mediawiki connect.

  • Código fonte is managed using the Git version control system.[5]
  • Revisão do código para a maioria dos projetos é executado em Gerrit . Siga este tutorial para configurar o Git e Gerrit para enviar patches.
  • Relatórios de Erros (bugs) e tarefas para a maioria dos projetos são geridos no 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.

Depuração e testes

  • Unit testing – learn to write unit tests for MediaWiki using PHPUnit.


  • MediaWiki Class Reference – technical documentation generated from the MediaWiki source code. (Note: The class reference is a large, slow-to-load page.)


  • 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.
  • Acesso à Base de Dados 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.
  • API das Mensagens MediaWiki's framework for providing localized application messages with PHP or JavaScript.

Ampliar o 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.

  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 PostgreSQL and SQLite.
  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 phab:diffusion/ or download the source code to your system by using Gerrit.
