I read there is no api to obtain main article of wikipedia articles, but I also noticed many topics on stackoverflow are old of one year.

Is there any progress on this?
Also, is it possible to obtain thumbnails of images (or specified size) for multiple pages?

If there is no way to obtain the first image appearing in the article,
which way would you suggest in order to pick up the image from a set of images in the page, avoiding to parse the whole page and get the thumbnail?
this would be important because I am trying to make a sequential call and i don't want to query in parallel.

Thank you for sharing ideas and state of the art!
