Thanks @zhuyifei1999 for pointing this. This is an old test I need to clean. Will try to clean that as soon as I get access to a PC with SSH access to tools.

This is something I have been asking on Frenchspeaking wikipedia village pump yesterday, being sure it was already possible. According to this issue and the fact that it has not changed since about 2 years I believe there is no way to do it right now, that would really be great for people who don't check their watchlist everyday but want to be sure that they don't miss any change on some articles!

Symac added a comment to T43085: User contributions feed should match index.php feed format (diff etc.).

Hello,
I have found this bug while searching if it was already reported and from what I understand (not very used to phabricator/gerrit, sorry if I am wrong) a patch has been submitted 18 months ago and the last comment from September seems to conclude that it needs more discussion. Is there any plan to have this discussion?

I don't know where is the best place to report this but when I had an average time of 200ms for each request last week, I am mainly today at 1s, is this because the service starts to be more used? Is there any target time that is acceptable for this API ?

Yes, that's not possible right now, the monthly data per article is pretty sizable and we decided to hold off on adding that right now. Would you do us a big favor and give it a shot by requesting daily data and summing up the numbers? I'd love to hear from you if that runs slowly or sucks for other reasons. Then we could use that as an argument that we have to add monthly data. To be clear, this is not hard to do technically, it just uses precious resources and we need a good use case.

  1. Other thing (for my specific use case) is that it would be great to be able to request statistics for different pages with a unique call to the API, even on different wikis, but I don't know how it could be doable, using POST variables?

I'm not sure what you mean by this, could you expand with an example and some more detail?

Don't know if it is something that is suitable with the way API as it is constructed but the idea would be to get data for different articles and different wiki via a single call like that:

Thanks fot the API, that is great! I have been playing with views data to build this small tool http://www.wikifamo.us and at the moment I am processing the stats dumps but it would be great to be able to switch to the API to make things easier, unfortunately my use case does not fit really well with the current API: I need to get information for numerous articles (x versions of the same articles in 10th of languages) and am interested by monthly statistics.
