Wikispore has installed the Page Forms and Cargo extensions, which are not otherwise enabled anywhere else on Wikimedia projects.

These can provide an alternative/complementary approach to Wikibase, and have different points of strength that may be more suitable to some experimental projects. Among other aspects, this model ia more suitable to extended text fields or "strings" on page forms, thus leaning more in the direction of "strings vs things", while still having considerable "things" functionality.
