Hi Andra!

I actually built that functionality into WikidataQueryServiceR -- see `help("scrape_example", package = "WikidataQueryServiceR")` and https://github.com/bearloga/WikidataQueryServiceR/#extracting-and-running-example-sparql-queries -- but had to make it optional (not part of the core functionality) for licensing/dependency reasons.

Glad to see people are using WDQSR! :)

On the Python side, I'm sure there's a way to do something similar using BeautifulSoup web-scraping library.

I am still a happy consumer/contributor to the WDQS example page. In this context I am wondering if it is possible, and if so what it would  take to extent the "Tri It!" link in the SPARQL2 template, with a "get the code in the <programming language of your choice>"?

When using libraries like WikidataQueryServiceR or python I often rely on examples stored in the WDQS example page. It would be quite convenient to be able to do something like: demo_query("Popular surnames among fictional characters") in R which would direct feed on the WDQS example page.

Where can I express such a feature request?

I've removed the background, looks like nobody is really happy about it
being there :)
