The GoogleDocs4MW extension embeds Google Docs' spreadsheets into the wiki.

Installation

[edit]
  • Download and move the extracted GoogleDocs4MW folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/GoogleDocs4MW
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'GoogleDocs4MW' );
    
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Usage

[edit]

Supported parameters are:

Name Default
width 500
height 300
style width:100%

As an example using all of the parameters:

<googlespreadsheet width="600" height="200" style="width:50%">Google Docs' key goes here</googlespreadsheet>

The Google Docs' key is the ID, encoded in the URL. For example, https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/4cmYOu9kuIfCzbu-Dsu9XaGHUnUHG32PK9wHe5yMv3VZ/edit#gid=0 has ID 4cmYOu9kuIfCzbu-Dsu9XaGHUnUHG32PK9wHe5yMv3VZ.

To actually embed a spreadsheet, the spreadsheet needs to be published with Google's File > Publish to Web... option. It is not sufficient to just have a shareable link.

Note

[edit]

This extension was inspired by the Fandom extension with the same name, but this extension was written back when Fandom wasn't open source.
