Wikipedia in Python ๐ŸŒ

Wikipedia in Python: Wikipedia is an awesome place to complete assignments right. And with Wikipedia being one of the largest and most popular sources for information on the Internet.

Wikipedia is a multilingual online encyclopedia created and maintained as an open collaboration project by a community of volunteer editors using a wiki-based editing system.

Today we bring wikipedia in our python program. Let’s see.

Installation

In order to extract data from Wikipedia, we must first install the Python Wikipedia library, which wraps the official Wikipedia API. This can be done by entering the command below in your command prompt or terminal:

pip install wikipedia

Code

Example #1: Extract the summary with summaryย method.

# Extract the summary with summary method
import wikipedia

result = wikipedia.summary("India", sentences = 2)
print(result)

# Follow @code_snail

Here, sentences = 2 refers to numbers of line.

Output:

wikipedia in python

Example #2: Searching title and suggestions

# getting suggestions 
import wikipedia 
 
result = wikipedia.search("python programming", results = 5) 
  
print(result) 

#Follow @code_snail

Output:

python wikipedia module

Example #3: Getting Full Wikipedia Page Data

The page() method is used to get the contents, categories, coordinates, images, links and other metadata of a Wikipedia page.

import wikipedia 
  
# wikipedia page object is created 
page_object = wikipedia.page("facebook") 

# printing title 
print(page_object.original_title) 
  
# printing 5 links on that page object 
print(page_object.links[0:5]) 

Output:

image 9

Example #4: Wikipedia page in Other langauges

The language can be changed to your native language if the page exists in your native language.ย Set_lang()ย method is used for the same.

import wikipedia 

# in greek language
wikipedia.set_lang("hi") 
result=wikipedia.summary("India")

# printing the summary 
print(result) 

#Follow @code_snail

Output:

wikipedia in python
