Summary Cards (a.k.a SUC) is a simple extension for displaying distinct content summaries on hovered links.

The content of a Summary Card is created by a template is assigned to the namespace of the hovered link and requested via Ajax.

The extension does not require Semantic MediaWiki but it is highly recommended to use them together in order for summaries to generate individual content (e.g. property that contains short description, image property, known keywords, modification date etc.) while building a summary.


  • PHP 5.5 or later
  • MediaWiki 1.25 or later


The recommended way to install SummaryCards is by using Composer with an entry in MediaWiki's composer.json.

	"require": {
		"mediawiki/summary-cards": "~1.0"
  1. From your MediaWiki installation directory, execute composer require mediawiki/summary-cards:~1.0
  2. Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki and verify that the package have been successfully installed.




The following document contains a detailed description on available settings and how to create adaptable content summaries.
