I find some of the other documentation a bit confusing. The above link seems to have everything in one place. It takes a while to go through it. Once you gain some familiarity with the API you will be able to formulate more specific questions, then you will find the people on this mailing list to be very helpful.

Good luck!

Dear Team,

I am planning to start a new website containing celebrities from different areas like in sports, movies and politics. For this I am planning to exract data from Wikipedia using API in XML or JSON format. Can someone send me Wikipedia API and the format of response I get? I am pretty much new to this type of technical stuff. I tried going through the document but could not understand much in detail. An example format will be of great use.

Thanks in advance.
