Summary

I think that the WikiPedia developers should create either per-article rss feeds, an easily accessible database that contains data for each section, subsection, etc. of an article, or an easily accessible script method that would strip data from the page.

Proposal

I think that the WikiPedia developers should have one of the two following things available to the public: Either A) an RSS feed for each article, containing sub-sections with the data for each section (Ex: The data for the Etymology section); B) A database with each section of an article's data able to be accessed and displayed (Ex: The data for the Etymology section); or C) An easily accessible script method that would take data from the page. Sorry if that was incoherent...


Motivation

  • This would be a great developer tool.
  • It would enable some great Wiki Widgets to be created.


Key Questions

  • Would developers use it?
  • Do we have the server space?


Potential Costs

  • Some money to purchase server space, should they choose to create a database or use RSS/ATOM(Potentially funded by advertisements)
  • Time
