        language: "en"
        query: "{{ query }}"

This template will simply make Kalliope speak out loud the summary section of the Wikipédia page of the query. If the query match more than one page, Kaliope will give the user all matched pages. If the query doesn't match any page on Wikipedia, kalliope will notify the user.

{% if returncode == "DisambiguationError" %}
    The query match following pages    
    {% if may_refer is not none %}
        {% for page in may_refer %}
            {{ page }}
        {% endfor %}
    {% endif %}
{% elif returncode == "PageError" %}
    I haven't  found anything on this
{% else %}
    {{ summary }}
{% endif %}
