Wrapper library for the Wikibase API

Project description


wikibase-api is a Python library for simple access to the Wikibase API.

It simplifies the authentication process and can be used to query and edit information on Wikidata or any other Wikibase instance.

For a simpler, object-oriented abstraction of the Wikibase API, have a look at python-wikibase.


pip install wikibase-api


Simple example for fetching all information about a Wikidata page:

from wikibase_api import Wikibase

wb = Wikibase()
r = wb.entity.get("Q1")


  "entities": {
    "Q1": {
      # ...
  "success": 1,

See the documentation for descriptions and examples of all commands.
