How to create query services for wikibase?

7

Hi. First of all, I apologize for the disgusting English I will use. I did the Wikibase installation. My main goal is to collect data that will not be added to Wikidata. So this data will be in one main area. I have configured my Mediawiki wikibase plugin as both a client and a server. But my problem starts at this point. I want to use this data on my MediaWiki site. I know how to use #statements and as a template. That is not my problem. I want to build something like query services used for Wikidata. Because I will use the other on wiki by questioning my data.

I did a lot of research. But I have not learned anything clear in this regard. Should I make the data wiki server, the other wiki client? A wiki that uses the same database as the data server? How about this idea for you? If there is a method you know, please do not hesitate to say it. Server sizes are small but mine. Is there something I can not see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Tools/External_tools or https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Data_access? I appreciate your help.

I think I found an answer. Wikidata query service/Implementation But is there a more easy method?

İncelemeelemani (talkcontribs)

I can not do it : https://github.com/wikimedia/wikidata-query-rdf , Wikidata query service/User Manual#Standalone service - https://github.com/wikimedia/wikidata-query-deploy - Wikibase/Indexing/WDQS Beta - Wikibase/Indexing/RDF Dump Format - Wikidata query service/Problematic queries - WDQS Production .

@Jonas Kress (WMDE): Is that something you can help with – maybe just with referring @Incelemeelemani to the right person? The problem might also point out that our terminology and/or documentation needs to be iterated if the client/server question is unclear.

@İncelemeelemani here is the all in one docker solution:

If you have more questions feel free to contact me via irc or email.

@Jonas Kress (WMDE), @Jan Dittrich (WMDE)... Am I telling the truth? I installed Wikibase on my own web site. I've added the data. I want to question the data on my site. Is it enough to install only WDQS for this? Unfortunately, I could not find any help on this issue. I found a few little bits of information. But it is inadequate. Could you suggest a non-docker solution to me? Do I have to install https://github.com/wikimedia/wikidata-query-rdf ? Thank you. Website address : sorumu.com

I installed Wikibase which solved a lot of the problems on my MediaWiki site. Now, however, search suggest is no longer working. Results normally popped up as letters were typed into the search bar but now the only thing that pops up is a spinning wheel and nothing being found (it only shows the current typed text, italicized). Any help on getting Search working again is much appreciated! Thank you!

If you turn your local wiki into a Wikibase repository, the search box in the upper right will be replaced with an entity search. There is currently no way to turn this of. You can hack the code and remove the line $out->addModules( 'wikibase.ui.entitysearch' ); in the file repo/Wikibase.hooks.php just to see if it works.

Bttfvgo (talkcontribs)

I have been playing around with various things but to no avail. Removing the line you listed removes the spinning wheel that searches for "items" rather than pages. I had made a sample item once and the search box showed that one with no problem. I have been playing with different variables in LocalSettings.php, such as $wgUseAjax, $wgEnableOpenSearchSuggest, $wgVectorUseSimpleSearch and $wgEnableMWSuggest and can get them to show, but only once (if you use them they don't appear at all after that) but they appear in a results list which appear atop the "other" results list. Going to the search page itself which bring up suggested results with no problem. Any ideas?

Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

I don't understand what you want to do. I assume you want the top-right search box to suggest both items (by their label) as well as page names in other namespaces. Such a feature does not exist.

Bttfvgo (talkcontribs)

That is indeed what I want. The search box on the Special:Search page does indeed search for suggested results when letters are typed (but doesn't search for entities). Is there a way to swap the primary search box (which got replaced with entity search) with the one used on the Special:Search page? Search suggest works there! Or is there any extension I can get? I know MediaWiki and Wikipedia both use CirrusSearch but I cannot complete installation because my current hosting plan doesn't offer Java and apparently you need Java to get Elasticsearch to work. Is there a workaround or possibly another extension, or can I just change the primary box with the one on Special:Search? Thanks again!

Bttfvgo (talkcontribs)

Is there perhaps something I can edit in the file /extensions/Wikibase/repo/resources/wikibase.ui.entitysearch.js? I've found two lines: Updates the suggestion list special item that triggers a full-text search. and Removes the native search box suggestion list. Can I edit anything on the page to change it back? I feel like I'm so close! Thanks!

Bttfvgo (talkcontribs)

I put it back but removing the lines

		function removeSuggestionContext( input ) {
			var context = $.data( input, 'suggestionsContext' );

			if ( context ) {
				// Native fetch() updates/re-sets the data attribute with the suggestion context.
				context.config.fetch = function() {};
				$.removeData( input, 'suggestionsContext' );
			}
		}

does indeed add search suggestion capabilities back the box. However, the "other" search list still appears under this one. I can try removing the lines below the aforementioned section of code, which look like they would add the spinner and entity search features. I really do hope there's a way! Suggested search is so, so nice.

Bttfvgo (talkcontribs)

Okay, so I removed the above, and all lines below it, up to // Default form submit action: Imitate full-text search. I went ahead and ran $php maintenance/update.php and everything seems to be working great again. I haven't ran into any inherent problems, and that "other" search box doesn't appear anymore. Only search suggestions, same as it always has. I hope there won't be any problems caused by doing that. Granted I won't be able to search for "items" anymore, but it's okay, I don't have any anyway. I merely added the feature for "future expansion". If you know of any possible problems that will come from having eliminated that code, please let me know!!

The first time, I setup the client only. After reading some of the comments here, I setup both the repository and the client. In both cases, as soon as I enable Wikibase in Localsettings.php, the search function breaks. Normally, the search will return matches almost as soon as you start typing. Once Wikibase is enabled, I get the dreaded circling lines while typing. When I stop typing, I get a message "No match was found". Nothing every appears in the search box. If I click on the magnifying glass, I get results below. This behavior is repeatable.

My setup: FreeBSD 10.3, PHP 7.1.10, MediaWiki 1.29.1

I feel like I'm missing a step, but I've read and reread the docs.

@Bttfvgo, are you saying removing that function fixes the problem? It doesn't sound like it.

  • Construct an ApiMain object with the arguments passed via the URL and call its execute() method to do the actual API stuff.
Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

I'm afraid this question is way to generic. I can see it's a quote from Manual:Api.php. But the relevant question is, what do you want to do? What do you have and what do you want to achieve? Maybe it helps if you start playing around with the d:Special:ApiSandbox?

API token... documentation error?

Summary by Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE)

Editing via API must be done via POST, and can not be done via JSONP.

Valerio Bozzolan (talkcontribs)

Going here I see the «token» param. But trying to use it, it throws an error:

"code": "mustpostparams"
"info": "The following parameter was found in the query string, but must be in the POST body: token."

How to use it? Thanks.

Valerio Bozzolan (talkcontribs)

Solved. Means POST method. Yes, I used POST method, but I was under same origin policy restrictions, and it does not work with JSONP. Abandoned.

There are no links to the user manual, where is it? On Meta?

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

Unless I'm blind and all links on this wiki and Meta are wrong, it seems there is no user manual.

What I was looking for was Wikibase/DataModel#Dates_and_times, approximately (bugzilla:64593). It took me 25 minutes to find that page/section and from the warning at the top of the page it seems to be an implementation plan, not documentation. I think this extension really needs to have a user manual, which would typically be in Help namespace here on mediawiki.org.

If most of the planned stuff has been implemented, you could rephrase most of the pages and then mark the various sections with version markers as we do for the rest of MediaWiki, also tagging stuff left to future releases.
