An API Wrapper for the MediaWiki API

Created by Benjamin Whitehead

pub package Build Status

This is an early implementation of the MediaWiki API in Dart. Note, there are still some issues with this API that will be worked on in the coming months. Some of these issues include: unclean data and over use of dynamic types.

Getting Started #

To get started, simply add dartpedia to pubspec.yaml:

  dartpedia: ^1.6.6

Using #

To use dartpedia, first start by importing the package.

import 'package:dartpedia/dartpedia.dart' as wiki;

Next, create a new WikipediaPage object with the wiki.page(topic) function.

var wikipediaPage = await wiki.page('Dart (programming language)');

Use the .summary() function to print a summary of the page.


To get the individual components of a page, use the following functions

var url = wikipediaPage.url;
var title = wikipediaPage.title;
var links = wikipediaPage.links;
var content = wikipediaPage.content;

To search for possible topics for a phrase, use the .search(topic) function

var relatedTopics = await wiki.search("Dart");

Examples: #

The following are example programs using the dartpedia package:

  • Getting all unique words in a given Wikipedia Page
  • Getting the sum of all lengths of words in a given Wikipedia's Sub Pages
  • Getting all related topics to a given topic

Examples #

Getting all unique words in a given Wikipedia Page: #

import 'package:dartpedia/dartpedia.dart' as wiki;
main() async {
  var words = [];
  try {
    var page = await wiki.page('New York City');
    var pageContents = ((page.content).split(' '));
    pageContents.forEach((e) {
      if (!words.contains(e)) {
  } catch (exception) {

Summing up the lengths of all the words in each sub page of a given topic: #

import 'package:dartpedia/dartpedia.dart' as wiki;
int addWordsInPage(wiki.WikipediaPage page) {
  print('Summing Words in: ${page.title}');
  int subSum = 0;
  ((page.content).split(' ')).forEach((e) => {subSum += e.length});
  return subSum;
main() async {
  int sum = 0;
  try {
    var page = await wiki.page('\"Hello, World!\" program');
    for (var x in page.links) {
      var subPage = await wiki.page(x);
      sum += addWordsInPage(subPage);
  } catch (ex) {
  print('Total $sum');
import 'package:dartpedia/dartpedia.dart' as wiki;

main() async {
  var relatedTopics = await wiki.search('California');
