The Mirador extension implements a build of Mirador v3, including four plugins, for use in wikis. Mirador is a multi-window image viewer which lets you bring in, view, zoom in on, leaf through and compare IIIF resources from institutions and repositories all across the world. A parser function (#mirador) lets users configure and load an instance of Mirador.

The extension is developed and maintained for CODECS, a Semantic MediaWiki-driven wiki for Celtic studies.
