Editing Wikipedia using Pywikibot[edit]

Pywikibot is a python library that can be used to read and edit Wikimedia sites. Following is a very simple program that can be used to create a new page on a user space, if it doesn't exist.

import pywikibot

p = pywikibot.Page(pywikibot.Site(fam="wikipedia", code="en"), 'User:Jsamwrites/Sandbox/Test')
if p.exists() == False:
    p.text = "hello world! testing pywikibot" #Wikipedia text context"Editing wikipedia using pywikibot") #Summary of the changes

SPARQL for Wikidata[edit]

During this SPARQL for Wikidata workshop, Wikidata was briefly introduced and Query Service was also presented with some examples.

Thanks User:Frimelle and User:Multichill

Query Service can be used to get the results in the form of csv or tsv format. Linked Data Fragments Endpoint can be used to get triple data (when one or two components of the triple is known).

Harvest Templates[edit]

Harvest Templates can be used to extract data from Wikipedia templates and then copy them to Wikidata. Thanks it:User:Laurentius.


Introduction to Petscan. Petscan can be used to find the articles that belong to some categories and then edit the associated Wikidata entries. It is also possible to navigate to subcategories (and subcategories of subcategories and so on ...) using the depth field. Pywikibot scripts can also be used to easily edit Wikipedia articles.
