For a Wikipedia page: is it possible to get the list of all Wikipedia links on that page with their respective wikidata IDs in a single query/API call?

Optional: can additional information of the respective wikidata items like a property value also be received with the query?

  • Why don't you process the HTML page?

  • I was looking for an easier and "cleaner" solution, and I think using available API calls is the approach preferred by wikipedia / wikidata. May 7, 2016 at 11:36

That doesn't seem to be possible using the Wikipedia API.

You can get a list of all links from a certain article: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&prop=links&titles=London

You can also get information about description, alias and label from Wikidata for all links from an article: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&generator=links&titles=London&prop=pageterms

But there doesn't seem to be any way to get any other information from Wikidata on Wikipedia.

If you use Wikidata API, you can get all the Wikidata-related information you want, but there is no way to get the links of a Wikipedia article there.


In fact, it is possible using MediaWiki API generators:
