Add more popular articles per country data to AQS
Open, HighPublic


Develop API endpoint with most popular articles per country.

  • let's do a small design document on API to make sure we have a sensical endpoint
  • Probably a Top 50 per wiki is sufficient.
  • Should only include agent_type="user" (both "spider" and "bot" should be excluded)

Hi @Nuria,
This is Megha Jain and I am a newbie to Wikimedia , but would love to contribute to the open source community.
I am proficient with SQL , Python and Perl , data analytics and have developed basic web apps in JS and PHP. Currently I am a Data Science student , exploring new things.

Let's start on this task in the same way, building a design document that specifies queries semantics for APi. The parent task can be used to get input from stakeholders if needed.
