Wiktionary Parsers

in Lexicography, Programming

Although functionally limited, the small Wiktionary parser I developed a few years ago has served its purpose. It was meant to provide a fast and easy way to extract specific information for a given word, which would then be included in a separate database. Its output is crude; its abilities meagre. I may, in the future, work on expanding its functionality, but given that I have other projects to work on, I can’t be sure if this will in fact ever happen.

What follows are links to other similar resources for those of you who require more functionality from a Wiktionary parser. My thanks to Gyuri at ProofreadBot for many of these links.

I would also like to emphasize that all MediaWiki projects offer a very robust API with output in a number of different formats, though JSON seems to be the only future proof structure.
