[Epic] Support for queries on-wiki (automated list generation)
Open, HighPublic

Description

From the development plan:
Users are able to write queries like “all poets who lived in 1982” or “all cities with more than 1 Million inhabitants”. They are entered in a page in the Query namespace and internally saved as JSON. They are then executed when resources are available - usually not immediately. The result is cached. A query can be set to rerun at regular intervals or on-demand by an administrator. The result of the query is shown on the same page. It can also be accessed via the API. The clients can include the result of a query in their pages to for example create list articles. This will enable for example to have automatically updated list articles on Wikipedia.

However it is not decided yet whether the Queries will reside on Wikidata.org or on wiki. It's part of the discussion we will have to define the needs better.

Isn't this the very definition of the Wikidata-Query-Service, which is now deployed in production, therefore meaning this is resolved?

This is about being able to use the query service from a wiki via a Lua module.

I've updated the task title to reflect this.

As one of the possible solutions for this: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:TabulistBot

Not sure whether it closes the task, but at least it implements a major part of it.

@Lydia_Pintscher - I wonder if this may be enough?

I am noticing that there's no use of the TabulistBot at all. So I wonder if the use case is there...

It could be that it is not well known, that not enough users know how to use it, or that it is just too cumbersome to import the data first to Commons.
