The Capiunto (Latin: "they shall contain") extension provides a basic Infobox functionality for Scribunto.

An overview of the Lua methods which Capiunto provides can be found at /Infobox.

Capiunto provides flexible Infobox functionality for Scribunto and generates HTML for Infobox features such as headers and rows.

Capiunto is designed for clean and modern Infoboxes. Using Lua as a scripting language for Infobox templates, it was developed to make Infoboxes:

  • clean and clutter-free
  • usable across different language versions
  • driven by data from Wikidata
  • easy to maintain and extend

With Capiunto Lua code to create a basic Infobox might look like this:

local capiunto = require 'capiunto'
capiunto.create( {
	title = 'Title of the Infobox'
} )
:addRow( 'A label', 'some data' )
:addHeader( 'A header between the data rows' )
:addRow( 'Another label', 'more data' )
