Wikidata talk:Tools/Archive 2

Use of wb_terms

Hello everyone,

Wikidata's wb_terms database table is replicated on toolforge, and people can build scripts, tools, etc using these data.

As we're considering phasing out this database table, we want to understand what and how data is used, so we can offer some reasonable replacement(s) for the users.

If you are the author of a tool using wb_terms replica, or use replicas in any other way, please provide some basic information on what are you using, and how, preferably by adding a comment to this Phabricator task.


  • Usage: I have created a tool that finds Wikidata items that have English label, but are missing a label in my native language
  • What data I use: I query label data from wb_terms, and then process results in my tool to find the gaps.

We don't set any hard deadline for this survey, but it would be great to have some overview of existing usage of the replica by the end of June 2018. If you have any other questions that you think are related, do not hesitate to ask on Phabricator.
