Wikidata GUI

This plugin imports near arbitrary metadata from Wikidata for books that already have a wikidata ID. (Use the wikidata metadata plugin to add IDs to existing books.)

This is the first release for this plugin and the most complex UI I've written to date. It's sure to have a few bugs, and I expect complaints about my UI. Constructive criticism greatly appreciated!

There's a todo.txt in the zip file with the complaints I personally have and possible future features. Discussion of these or others will prioritize their implementation.

Features supported in version 0.3:
  • Property, Tag, and Identifier editor to help mange wikidata before merging into books
  • Import from books or manually enter arbitrary wikidata properties and entities and mark for filtering
  • Import from books external identifiers in wikidata for editing
  • Identifier editor to manage importing and translating of identifiers back and forth to URIs

Version History:
Spoiler:

Version 0.3.0 - 13 Jan 2019
Initial release of Wikidata GUI plugin

Majority of planned features are implemented
Most features seem to not be buggy anymore


Known bugs:
Spoiler:

Some of these are (fixed) for the next version.
  • Some user interface warts I can't figure out how to fix yet
  • Some planned features are in the UI but not yet implemented
  • There may be some data type handling bugs, especially with dates
  • Performance could probably be improved, suggest importing fewer than 200 books at once (or fewer than 500 with a single property enabled)
  • Probably needs more documentation, please ask questions!
  • Default tag for new identifiers is stupid due to a typo (fixed)
  • Selection doesn't travel with row when sorting (how to fix??)
  • Test button missing a tool tip (fixed)
