Assessing article coverage overlap between different language Wikipedias[edit | edit source]

Presenter: Darcyisverycute


Phabricator Task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T283466

Description: I use SPARQL to query Wikidata and try to work out how different language Wikipedias compare on coverage for  articles. There are multiple preexisting lists I try to compare this to: Vital articles and the metawiki list of 1000 articles every wiki "should" have. I will present my results and I will also discuss the benefits and limitations surrounding larger scale queries to compare article coverage for Wikidata-linked articles.

Wikidatum Ruby gem for new Wikibase REST API[edit | edit source]

Presenter: Connor

Links: https://github.com/connorshea/wikidatum, see also the REST API docs (not mine) https://doc.wikimedia.org/Wikibase/master/js/rest-api/

Phabricator Task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T315105

Description: A Ruby gem (aka library) for interacting with the new Wikibase REST API that's in Beta right now. Supports all currently-implemented GET/POST/DELETE endpoints. It's able to serialize a full Wikibase item (labels, descriptions, aliases, sitelinks, statements, qualifiers, references, etc.), create new statements of various types, and delete statements. There are still a decent number of missing features (notably authentication, proper error handling, and all PUT requests), but it's in a pretty good place at this point.
