On-Demand Documentation

The On-demand API will return the most recent live version of any article(s) from any Wikimedia project. Query by name across all projects or from a single language project using Metadata filtering. On-demand returns JSON by default, but if you would prefer a NDJSON response be sure to include the Accept: application/x-ndjson header.

The new Structured Contents beta endpoint is our sandbox that includes fully parsed Wikipedia Infobox data in JSON with more features coming shortly.
