Attribution Generator

Using and sharing works licenced under Creative Commons requires specifying an attribution as defined by the respective licence. This application helps generating a legally correct attribution with images from Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. A questionnaire leads through the process of collecting information needed when publishing images from Wikipedia and Commons to create a legally sufficient attribution line.

Technical documentation

Licence support

The licences supported by the application are defined in js/app/LICENCES.js.

Coding conventions

Coding style adheres to the Wikibase coding conventions.

Building the code

Run npm installto pull any new dependencies.

Browserify is used to build and minify the JS code.

  • npm run build builds a production version
  • npm run watch builds a development version of the code that is not minified and will listen for updates on all JS files
  • npm run build-test builds the test code
  • npm run watch-test builds the test code unminified and listens for changes on test files


QUnit tests are located in the tests directory. Before merging changes, tests should be run by accessing /tests/index.html in a browser after executing npm run build-test or from command line using qunit-phantomjs-runner:

npm run build-test && phantomjs path/to/runner.js ./tests/index.html


The backend code for the feedback form can be found in the /backend directory. Its dependencies are installed via composer install and tests can be run by executing phpunit.
