Miga is open-source software. It is available through the GNU General Public License.
Miga is mostly written by Yaron Koren, and was first released in July 2013. Initial development work was sponsored by the Wikimedia Foundation, through an Individual Engagement Grant.
Conceptually, it is based in large part on the generic approach to data espoused by the Semantic MediaWiki project.
Additional funding, as well as development, has been contributed by Ontodia.
Miga includes the following third-party software and files:
- the jQuery library, available under the MIT License
- the Google Maps utility markerclusterer.js, available under the Apache License
- the MediaWiki API library botclasses.php, available under the GNU GPL
- the image Ajax-loader.gif from Wikimedia Commons, in the public domain.
For the moment, there is no Miga mailing list or IRC channel. You can use the Miga GitHub page to submit bug reports and patches. You can also write Yaron at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions, comments, bug reports and patches.
