Wikidata Bridge/Desenvolupament

This page is a translated version of the page Wikidata Bridge/Development and the translation is 26% complete.
Edit Wikidata’s data directly from your infobox

Who's working on the project? The first part of this feature will be developed by the Wikidata development team at Wikimedia Deutschland (including: engineering team, product manager, UX designers, community communication). In the future, the Wikimedia Foundation could also work on it, when it comes to the integration into Wikipedia.

How do we work? In order to make sure that we’re building a tool that is answering editors’ needs, we’re using agile methods in our development process. We don’t start with a fixed idea of the tool we want to deliver: we will build it together with the communities, based on feedback loops that we will regularly organize. We don’t wait to have a “finished” product to deploy it: we will start enabling features step by step, deploy small chunks over the next months, try it with the editors on a trial & error basis. The first version will not necessarily have all of the features you want, but it will keep evolving.

What is our goal?

Here are the things we want to achieve:

  • Reduce the amount of outdated data in infoboxes
  • Reduce the amount of (unintentionally) conflicting data between infoboxes in different projects
  • Higher quality data on Wikidata
  • More data for readers on all wikis (especially smaller ones)
  • Less data overall to maintain per editor on the Wikimedia projects
  • Make Wikidata feel less distant for editors from the other Wikimedia projects

How is it going to work?

We want to create an interface that will be accessible from an infobox template on Wikipedia (for example with an “edit” link located in the infobox), that will allow people to edit the values that are stored in Wikidata and displayed in this infobox.

Funcions previstes per la primera versió (producte viable mínim)

  • Possibilitat d'obrir un editor local a la Viquipèdia que permeti modificar valors de Wikidata.
  • Modificació d'un valor simple de Wikidata (p. ex. data o nombre d'habitants, no un valor que enllaci a un altre element)
  • Proporcionar diferents opcions segons si la gent vol modificar el valor (perquè és incorrecte a Wikidata) o actualitzar-lo (p. ex. perquè el nombre d'habitants ha canviat)

Funcions previstes en propers passos

  • Modificació de valors amb qualsevol tipus de dades (p. ex. l'alcalde d'un municipi)
  • Canviar més fàcilment entre valors locals i valors provinents de Wikidata
  • Modificació de valors locals i de valors provinents de Wikidata en la mateixa interfície integrada a l'Editor Visual
  • Afegir o modificar valors per una propietat que encara no s'usa a la infotaula
  • Modificació de valors en elements diferents al connectat via un enllaç del wiki.

Allò que no forma part d'aquest projecte

Aquestes són les funcions que no formaran part dels primers passos de desenvolupament. Es poden aconseguir més tard en el futur.

  • Creació d'elements nous quan no se n'ha trobat cap.
  • Mostrar les modificacions a Wikidata en l'historial de l'article de la Viquipèdia.
  • Modificació de dades en propietats i lexemes.

What is going to change?

  • On Wikipedias and other projects
    • A new feature of the Wikibase Client extension will be enabled
  • On infoboxes
    • The infoboxes maintainers will need to adapt the templates to get the new feature. If it’s not done, the infoboxes will continue to work as they are currently, so the template builders make the choice if they want to enable editing Wikidata’s data or not
    • On adapted infoboxes, a link or icon (for example “edit Wikidata’s data”) will open the editing interface
  • On Wikidata
    • A tag for edits coming from Wikidata Bridge will be added
    • More Wikipedia editors will start editing Wikidata
