Users by language

Hello! I'm Maxime Lathuilière — often contracted as maxlath (\makslat\) — , you will find here a brief outlook of what I do around Wikidata. You may read more about what I do in general, and why I do it, at


Contributing on a lot of different things that come on my way but mostly instances of book (Q571) and human (Q5) with occupation (P106):writer (Q36180), which are the main entities I use for the project server (Q32844021): a webapp to keep inventories of books using wikidata!

External Tools[edit]

I'm also the developer of a few Wikidata tools:

  • wikibase-sdk: a javascript tool suite to query and work with wikibase data
  • wikibase-edit: a lib to edit Wikibase from NodeJS
  • wikibase-cli: read and edit a Wikibase instance from the command line (combines the two above behind a command-line interface)
  • wikidata-filter: a command-line tool to filter a Wikidata dump by claim
  • Wikidata Subset Search Engine Tools to setup an ElasticSearch instance fed with subsets of Wikidata
  • import-wikidata-dump-to-couchdb: a tool to import a subset or a full Wikidata dump into a CouchDB database
  • wikidata-lang: a JSON/JS index of 183 languages accessible either by their 2-letters language code or Wikidata Qid

And some tools based on Wikidata:

  • Hub: a web hub based on Wikidata
    • which can be used in many ways, including linking to the Wikipedia page corresponding to a Wikidata entity in the user language.
      Example: toolforge:hub/Q123 should redirect you to the Wikipedia page for September in your language
  • Hub.js: a script based on the above Hub adding links to every pages based on their associated Wikidata entity

Mass edits[edit]

Among other things, I use the tools above to edit Wikidata en masse: see wikidata-scripting
