jwiki

Build Status JDK-11+ MediaWiki 1.31+ License: GPL v3

Programmatically accessing Wikipedia/MediaWiki via the API is hard ☹️. I thought it didn't have to be, so I made it easy πŸ˜€. jwiki lets you perform all sorts of crazy API calls with 1️⃣ line of Java.

Yes, one line.

It's so easy that anyone (including your grandma πŸ‘΅πŸ») can write a program that works with MediaWiki.

Not convinced? Try out the examples.

Goals

  • Simplicity - Complex objects and functions are abstracted into the background so that anybody, regardless of Java experience, will be able to use jwiki.
  • Speed - Network calls, local computation, and memory usage are optimized and minimized, so as to enhance performance and reduce overhead.
  • Succinctness - Complex API actions can be performed in jwiki using one line of local code consisting of simple objects and primitive types.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
