Media entity provides a 'base' entity for media. This is a very basic entity
which can reference to all kinds of media-objects (local files, YouTube
videos, Tweets, Instagram photos, ...). Media entity provides a relation between
Drupal and the media resource. You can reference to/use this entity within any
other Drupal entity.
This module attempts to provide the base storage component for the Drupal 8
Our current development focus can be seen in the roadmap issue.
If you prefer usual patch-based workflow feel free to submit a patch. We started
using GitHub mostly for easier review process. However, there are no strong opinions
about that. Any contribution in any shape or form will be treated equally.
