- List of known users of Wikimedia web APIs specifying main uses.
- Metrics of quantitative use of these APIs
There are two ways to discover this
- WMF staff and community update page(s) about users of the API based on what they know, e.g. "I met with LoveMyMusic and they show artist details" or "Here's a screenshot of Wikipedia lookup on Kindle"
- proposed public page: [[ https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Clients_of_Wikimedia_APIs | Clients of Wikimedia APIs ]]
- we analyze the user agents and possibly hosts from the improved action API logs and other API logs
//Note// (also on the public page) there are also people building services from Wikipedia dumps, the RecentChanges stream, and (possibly?) the [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_update_feed_service | Wikimedia update feed services ]]. They are not clients of our web APIs.
**Issue** how much of this is private, on an office.wikimedia.org page rather than a public page [[ API:Clients of Wikimedia APIs]]? It seems mentioning use of Wikimedia by a public service or app is uncontroversial, but if a client uses Wikimedia APIs for a private internal use, is it OK to list it? And should the quantitative metrics be public?
