Welcome to the Consumerium test wiki

Consumerium development work has been relying on Mediawiki for 15 years

This test wiki is run as a part of a wiki family and shares parts of its database from the Consumerium developent wiki and offers single sign-on and single login.

Wikibase extension

Wikibase (wikiba.se) is a system for storing and querying structured data that powers Wikidata and other wikis.

This wiki has enabled both the Wikibase Repository and the Wikibase Client Mediawiki extensions.

  1. The Wikibase Repository component allows a wiki to work as a repository for structured data much like Wikidata.
  2. The Wikibase Client allow (multiple) wikis to access a Wikibase Repository. The client can work only with repository databases it can access directly so they must be on the same machine or use remote secure connection to the database server or the database to be on the same load balancer.

Wikibase installation instructions at Mediawiki.org and advanced configuration of Wikibase.

The installation instructions assume you are installing the dependencies with Composer, a PHP package manager that makes the installation of dependencies easy.
