Advanced Wikidata editor

Project description


Python 3.x Support License: AGPL v3+

Daty welcome screen

Daty is a free cross-platform advanced Wikidata editor adhering to GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, intended to enable better editing workflow and faster deployment of requested user features. Use Daty to search, select, read, batch edit items, script actions, share, visualize proposed changes and bots.

Daty is written in Python 3 and it uses GTK+ 3.0 python bindings for interface organization and drawing.

It has a progressive layout thanks to libhandy and uses pywikibot as a backend.

Currently implemented

  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Search and open entities through elasting search and triplets;
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Read entities and follow their values;
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Page and sidebar search;
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Edit statements;
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Mass-edit statements.

Hardware or contributors needed.


In order to run daty, you need to install PyGobject, pywikibot and libhandy. If your distribution is not in the following, hopefully it should still have them available for you in their repositories.


Install daty-git from AUR and skip to "Run".

Ubuntu disco / Debian Sid

Run the following commands from your terminal:

# apt install python3-gi gir1.2-gtk-3.0 python3-pip libhandy-0.0-0
# pip3 install pywikibot


To run daty you just need to clone this repository and execute

$ python3 sdist bdist_wheel
$ sudo python3 install
$ daty

or you can just open the entry that should have appeared in your menu.
