Thanks for your work on this, @johl!

I just went over the text. Looks good!
Some remarks:

  • There is quite a lot of specific stuff that we will need to adapt as the query service evolves - especially in the UI. It would be good to do a check which of those very specific things really need to be in there. For example it explains step by step how to get to the more cats query example. But it is so specific that it will break the moment someone removes or renames the example.
  • At the beginning the intro to Wikidata imho should be rethought and ideally linked to the generic Wikidata intro.

@Jonas Would be great if you could also have a look.

Can I edit stuff there?
There are some broken links etc.

At point 'Manually edit the query' I would rather show how code completion works....
