Description

wdmapper is a command line application and Python library to manage mappings between authority files in Wikidata. The current draft is limited to simple 1-to-1 mapping that only exist for concepts of obviously unique identity such as people.

Installation

$ pip install wdmapper

Add option --user to install as non-root and option --upgrade to update an already installed version.

The general calling syntax is

wdmapper [OPTIONS] COMMAND [SOURCE] TARGET

where COMMAND is a wdmapper command, TARGET is a Wikidata property, and SOURCE is an optional Wikidata property for indirect links. TARGET can also be omitted when read from a BEACON file. Depending on the command wdmapper reads input mappings from a file or standard input and/or Wikidata and writes them to standard output or a file.

Run wdmapper without command line arguments (or with option --help|-h) for a list of command line input, and mappings from Wikidata. options.
