Still broken (at least 3 days now). I can't see the error messages but I tried running my own copy and ran into:

https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/mediawiki-api-announce/2016-May/000110.html

  • the code is using http not https:

base.py: WD_API = 'http://www.wikidata.org/w/api.php'

so I'm guessing this is the problem! Hopefully simple to fix?!

So I updated to https in my local copy and that definitely fixed the problem. Not sure if @Ricordisamoa is around? I don't have permission right now to do anything with ptable, but I do have an account (apsmith) on tools.wmflabs.org so if I was in the right group I could help out here maybe...

Whooooouuuups! I haven't been reading notifications recently... thank you @ArthurPSmith!
