Use wiki content¶
Find open source libraries, get started using the API, or download content in bulk.
Introduction to Wikimedia projects¶
Wikimedia content is organised by project and language. Each project hosts a different type of free content, like encyclopedia articles on Wikipedia, media files on Wikimedia Commons, and structured data on Wikidata.
Review the terms and conditions¶
Most Wikimedia content is licenced under a Creative Commons licence that allows free reuse with attribution. You can check the bottom of any wiki page to find the applicable license.
Browse libraries by programming language¶
API client libraries make it easier to write code that interacts with an API. Visit this list to browse popular libraries for the MediaWiki API by programming language.
Use the API¶
The MediaWiki API gives you programmatic access to content on any Wikimedia wiki. You can use the API to search and display wiki pages, get media files, edit pages, and manage wikis.
Download content in bulk¶
Access free downloads of wiki content and data that you can use in research, offline reading, bot editing, and other projects.
Get services for enterprise¶
Wikimedia Enterprise provides a suite of APIs and services designed for high-volume, commercial access to Wikimedia content and data.
