README

WikiAPI programmatically extracts information from one of the most popular websites Wikipedia. Get picture of the day, saying of the day, biography of US presidents, Business information, Sports information and a lot more. Pick your topic for example Business/Company. Use the names endpoint to list available companies. Use the company ID in the company endpoint to get all available information about the company.

**Welcome to WikiAPI **

WikiAPI gives developers the ability to extract information on the fly directly from Wikipedia. Just to give a glimpse of what that means, imagine you want to display Wikipedia picture of the day on your website. Wikipedia does not provide such an API so what to do ? WikiAPI solves this problem by providing an endpoint specifically designed to achieve that goal. For example to get the Arabic picture of day on Wikipedia simply hit the endpoint

/wiki/home/pod?lan=ar

See available endpoints for a list of supported languages and types of information extraction the API can handle.
