WikipediaJS is a simple JS library for accessing information in Wikipedia articles such as dates, places, abstracts etc.
The library is the work of Labs member Rufus Pollock. In essence, it is a small wrapper around the data and APIs of the DBPedia project and it is they who have done all the heavy lifting of extracting structured data from Wikipedia - huge credit and thanks to DBPedia folks!
Demo and Examples
A demo is included and you can see some examples of the library in action at the following links:
One of the reasons for creating WikipediaJS is that we think it can be useful in Timeliner and other apps as a way to quickly add new items to your timeline.
