A light/simple Python wrapper for the WikiWho API

Project description


A light/simple Python wrapper for the WikiWho API.

The WikiWho API provides the first editor (author) of Wikipedia words (tokens). It also provides the history of each of the tokens, i.e. in which revisions (and which editors) was the token (re)inserted or removed. The API is based on the WikiWho algorithm (~95% acc.).

Requires python >= 3.6

pip install wikiwho_wrapper

How to use it?

First, you need an instance of the WikiWho.

from wikiwho_wrapper import WikiWho
ww = WikiWho() # or WikiWho(USERNAME, PASSWORD)

You can either use api with the JSON (raw format from

response = ww.api.all_content("Bioglass")

Or you can use the dataview to obtain a pandas DataFrame representation of the data

dataView = ww.dv.all_content("Bioglass")

Note that all the methods, and classes can receive parameters. All the parameters of the API are currently supported. For now, you can check them directly in the code.



The Github repository of the tutorial is available here.
