Bring the ppp-sparql tool back to life
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The PPP Wikidata SPARQL tool used to be available at https://tools.wmflabs.org/ppp-sparql/, but the website is down at the moment.

There's a GitHub repository available, so it should be possible to revive the tool even if the authors have abandoned it.

Note: This task was part of the "Improving Visual SPARQL Query builders" project, carried out during the Wikimedia Hackathon 2019. Project poster:

There was an attempt to revive the tool by:

  1. cloning the repository and uploading it to a temporary web-accessible location (currently https://tools.wmflabs.org/primerpedia/PPP-Wikidata-SPARQL/www/)
  2. running composer install in that directory.

Unfortunately, that wasn't sufficient to get the tool to work. The problems were detailed in a bug report, issue #4.

Additionally, a README was proposed in PR #3. It is currently undergoing review.
