A gradually growing definition of the site's technological design challenges and decisions.
Wikidocumentaries is a project which aggregates content from Wikimedia projects, openly licensed GLAM archives through queries and from the visitors. The project allows less notable topics, such as biographies of ordinary people, or local history events.
Each content page consists of content modules that are added to the page depending on the page type, topic type and available content.

Reading content through APIs
Content is primarily not stored in Wikidocumentaries. It is read from organisations and platforms that offer open and openly licensed content for use through APIs. The structure of the API calls will be stored in Wikidocumentaries and the information stored about the topics will be used to construct the queries.
Each topic can be complemented with more info, the relating article can be made better, images can be tagged with names, keywords or location etc. The site will host tools for working with the materials displayed.
The platform is built on a MediaWiki with a Wikibase extension. Using Wikibase will collect issues regarding topics related specifically to Wikibase. It will also handle issues about the MediaWiki install, extensions etc.
Wikidocumentaries starts by creating the necessary functionalities in the MediaWiki interface. The goal is, however, to create an independent interface that reads the underlying Wikibase and MediaWiki information through an API.
