Hi everyone,

As you may know, the Wikidata development team has been working on a form-based query builder. It will allow people who don’t know how SPARQL to build lists of Items. I’m happy to announce that the Wikidata Query Builder has now been deployed: https://query.wikidata.org/querybuilder/

Example queries

One important thing to keep in mind: The Query Builder is not meant to allow you to build queries with the full power of SPARQL. It gives you access to some really important features of SPARQL that are already pretty powerful. We hope that it will even allow more people to get their first experience building queries and then maybe advancing to writing SPARQL directly once they figured out the basics with the Query Builder and got interested.

We started development last year and many of you participated in the testing sessions and gave us valuable feedback along the way. Thanks to you all!

Here are some of the things you can do with the Query builder:

Please try it out and let us know if you encounter any issues.
