Author: Oliver Keyes License: MIT Status: Stable
WikipediR is a wrapper around the MediaWiki API, optimised for the Wikimedia Foundation's production sites, such as Wikipedia. It is written in and for R, a statistical environment and associated programming language in heavy use by HCI researchers that, somehow, escaped having an API wrapper until now.
