This is nice! However, when visualizing properties by category, it seems that subclasses are not taken into account: only the properties bearing that exact category as P31 value are listed. This gives a pretty inaccurate view: it is crucial to respect this hierarchy, just like the prop-explorer tool does:

@Smalyshev okay! Sorry if this is not the right place: I would be happy to migrate the patch to another ticket. Indeed the patch only adds entity-level metadata, not dump-level metadata. I think this would be less of a breaking change, given that it does not require changing the dump structure (and of course it is more useful to me, haha!)

Pintoch added a comment to T92961: [Story] Versioning in JSON output.

Concerning the dumps, it should be possible to add versioning information on a per-entity basis, for instance by adding the revision id in the JSON serialization of the entity, as is currently done in Special:EntityData. This would arguably be more useful than a per-dump versioning, given that the dump generation process is not atomic. It would also be less of a breaking change: it would just amount to make JSON serialization of entities more uniform. This is debated in T87283.

We have this problem in https://dissem.in/ . This project is set up on Translatewiki, the code is hosted on GitHub and uses Travis for CI. We use Django's localization system which is based on gettext. We compile messages in the CI to check that they are valid. Sometimes translators add incorrect translations (such as translations not reusing the same variables as the msgid, or in a different format). This breaks our build as any incorrect translation will stop the entire compilation process. It is not clear if and how it would be possible to configure the translation compilation process to ignore invalid messages.

The search interface can also be used for that thanks to the haswbstatement command. That only gets you one id per query, so it might not be suited for all tools. I don't know if the lag is lower in this interface.
Retrieving items by identifiers is quite crucial in many tools so it would be useful to have a solid interface for that instead of relying on SPARQL (which feels indeed like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut).

@Criscod yes that would be a great idea.

Thanks for the ping Lydia! On the top of my mind, the only uses of SPARQL in the tools I maintain are in the openrefine-wikidata interface:

  • queries to retrieve the list of subclasses of a given class - lag is not critical at all for this as the ontology is assumed to be stable. (These results are cached on my side for 24 hours, for any root class.)
  • queries to retrieve items by external identifiers or sitelinks - lag can be more of an issue for this but I would not consider it critical. (These results are not cached.)

What matters much more for this tool is getting quick results and as little downtime as possible - lag is not really a concern.

Just to let you know that the problem with the ".0" will be solved in the next version of OpenRefine.
In the meantime, you can solve the issue by transforming your column with the following expression: value.toString().replace(".0",""). Hope it helps!
