Description Ian Monroe 2005-05-01 06:16:17 UTC
I'm a developer for amaroK, a Unix media player ( ). We've
added support for a tab which shows artist information of the currently playing
track retrieved from Wikipedia. Currently we are running a series of regexp's to
'clean' the HTML of the navigation, [edit]'s etc. While this is doable,
obviously if Wikipedia ever changes its format then it would be broken. It's
also somewhat of a pain when supporting different languages.

In the same way that mediawiki allows downloading of the wikisource, it would be
nice if it was possible for mediawiki to allow downloads of just the page
content. This would also reduce bandwidth somewhat.

Actually we would also need a way to get the list of languages for a given
article as well. Um. Perhaps an XML version of the page? Really simple, just the
content of the page plus metadata like languages available (thats all we would

If there was a way to fetch a simple list of languages available, that would
work fine as well.
