Free software using Wikibase RS

Custom Wikibase instance

By default Wikibase RS will use Wikidata. To use a different Wikibase instance you have to change the default configuration:

let configuration = wikibase::Configuration::new("My-Fancy-App/1.0").unwrap();
configuration.set_api_url("https://www.my-wikibase-instance.rs/w/api.php");

Dedication

Dedicated to Krzysztof Machocki. We will remember Krzysztof with his contagious enthusiasm and dedication, for his vast encyclopedic knowledge and wit, for his faith in how Wikipedia makes the world better, both online and offline. We lose him but let us not lose the faith he shared with the world. The memory of him remains and his Wikipedia legacy will continue to help the world.
