Would it be possible to set the language used to
search with? Whilst I most
often use English on Wikidata I'm sure a lot of people don't.
Not yet. The
query takes quite a while, so it's done in realtime but
every 24 hours, and then it's compiled to the HTML list. Adding
multi-language support would be a bit more cumbersome. I'm open to
pull requests though ;)
Yes, as usual: it is easy to support *any* language, but tricky to
support *all* languages.
I would just filter this in code; a more complex
SPARQL query is just getting slower.
Here is a little example Python script that gets all the data you need:
excellent. In that case i'll just do a query and filter in Python.
I intend to use this in our upcoming new
class/property browser as well.
Maybe it would actually make sense to merge the two applications at some point
hope the propbrowser will be made irrelevant by improvements in
other tools and the main Wikidata site ;)
We shall see. For now, it is certainly not obsolete. There might also be
different tools with different specialisations.
