What is Wikibase?
Wikibase is an open-source software suite for collaboratively creating interoperable knowledge bases.
Wikibase is an extension to MediaWiki and is a flexible, customizable, and powerful open-source knowledgebase software. It was initially designed to power Wikidata but has gained interest in GLAM institutions and educational and research communities since then.
Many Wikibase data export options exist, such as JSON, RDF, XML, YAML, N3, and others. There is also access to a powerful SPARQL query interface that supports federated queries, which allows you to share information between Wikibase instances.
MediaWiki and Wikibase is what we do. We have decades of experience creating hundreds of wikis and authoring dozens of extensions. Our team members are specialists in MediaWiki, server administration, design, and semantic data.
