DetailsEdit

Associative array mapping module name to class name. Extension modules may override the core modules (which are initialized in ApiMain.php ).

ExampleEdit

Suppose you wanted to create an API module to calibrate the wiki's awesomeness level. You would write a new extension, CalibrateAwesomeness, putting the following in your CalibrateAwesomeness.php file:

$wgAutoloadClasses['ApiCalibrateAwesomeness'] = __DIR__ . 'ApiCalibrateAwesomeness.php';
$wgAPIModules['calibrateawesomeness'] = 'ApiCalibrateAwesomeness';

Then you would create an ApiCalibrateAwesomeness.php file containing an ApiCalibrateAwesomeness class that extends, say, ApiBase , e.g.

class ApiCalibrateAwesomeness extends ApiBase {
	public function execute() {
	...
	}

	public function getAllowedParams() {
		return array(
			'level' => array (
				ApiBase::PARAM_TYPE => 'integer',
				ApiBase::PARAM_REQUIRED => true
			)
		);
	}
}

After installing your new extension on the English Wikipedia, you could then access that module by using, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=calibrateawesomeness&level=1000.

If you want to use a factory for creating the API module, you can define it like this:

$wgAPIModules['calibrateawesomeness'] = [
    'class' => 'ApiCalibrateAwesomeness',
    'factory' => 'ApiCalibrateAwesomenessFactory::create',
];

where class is the class of the API module and factory is some callable.
