This is a PHP framework?

The intro and Quickstart guide aren't too helpful. This sounds like it is for making Extensions within Wikia's version of MediaWiki, but it is hard to tell. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 29 Mar 2017 9:48 AM Pacific

Nirvana is a framework used in many Wikia's extensions, yes. It is a PHP framework consisted of many controllers.
Nirvana part that's more important to non-Staff users is the part that can be accessed through /wikia.php or /api/v1, which I... partly explained how to use here. It can be used for accessing a lot of information that normally can't be accessed through MediaWiki API.
The documentation here is an unfinished project of Wikia Staff members and sadly the biggest documentation of Nirvana you'll see around. Staff currently have about 4 API systems (or more) with MediaWiki API being the most documented one of them, and I don't think they have any plans in near future for documenting them.
