How it works?

alt tag

The home page of Wikifeedia consist of a news feed of Featured articles. Featured articles are considered to be the best articles in Wikipedia. As of now there is no API for getting a list of featured articles that changes each time one make a request. To facilitate this I had to to make a new API server along with some Javascript tweaks.

The backend of Wikifeedia can be found here.

Installation

git clone https://github.com/hackerkid/Wikifeedia/
cd Wikifeedia
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Now browse to http://localhost:8000 .

Equivalent python3 command is python3 -m http.server
