Work in progress

You're working on a plugin but it's not ready ? Please let us know, cause if someone wants to make the same feature, this person will help you rather than doing the same thing from scratch !

Temporary name Planned features Repo or a place to see the WIP Author Status
  • Area for storing a user's existing Wikimedia Commons account details
  • Support for uploading copy of media to Wikimedia Commons along with description, tags, licence details(editable + defaulting to the ones the media has in MediaWiki if any)
  • Support for editing uploaded copy details (description + new image version along with comments)
  • Available only for free media formats as per https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:File_types
T.B.A., about mid Jan 2014 gts Just began on a few hours per week basis. E.T.A., about end Feb/early March 2014.
Raw file support for GMG
  • Support NEF, done
  • Support CR2
  • Investigate support for other formats (if they include full-quality JPEG inside the file)

Tag Cloud Add a tag cloud feature for your templates git clone git://gitorious.org/~spaetz/mediagoblin/spaetz-mediagoblin.git HEAD:WIP/tag_cloud_plugin Spaetz It works but still needs core modifications.
Image property export for use externally
  • Basically, this would allow other sites (WordPress, etc.) to use their own plugins to easily grab image properties (description, name, url, alt text, license) for automatic insertion.
  • Include additional image properties (eg. alt text, short description) for scraping.
[none] exhipigeonist Absolutely no work and very little planning. Currently no more than an idea I'd like to work on later if I get time, in conjunction with a WordPress plugin that would utilise it, of course.
HTML5-Multiupload Adds a the html5 multifile input to the submit form https://github.com/VenKamikaze/mediagoblin-html5-multi-upload kamikaze-m Working on 0.4.1, but needs proper review. Test and report bugs, it might not work, but it's absolutly harmless to your MG instance
MG-GIMP Allows uploading of XCF images and GIMP resources (palettes, patterns, curves, gradients, brushes, dynamics, and tool presets). Thumbnails and previews are generated by an instance of GIMP running headlessly as a daemon. MG-GIMP docs and code repository Instance featuring GIMP media saulgoode Nearing completion. Still needs to be packaged for easier deployment.
mg-rdfa Embedding image metadata as RDFa https://github.com/commonsmachinery/mg-rdfa artfwo Experimental, only SVG images are supported at the moment.
