This plugin serves as a documented example of using WordPress’s built-in Media Gallery in plugins. It only uses filters and hooks to achieve this without any JavaScript hacks or other tricks.

No new admin menu is created on installation. The only new thing will be a panel in post/page editing with some information and a button that when clicked will open WordPress Media Gallery and each image will have instead of “Insert into post” a custom link that on click will send an AJAX request back to the plugin.
