Tool to add Wikidata to an article

  • Problem: Adding linked Wikidata data to articles like by using Template:Wikidata (Q8478926) is not user-friendly. You must inconveniently navigate between the item you want to add data from and the template editor in the VisualEditor. You cannot find the statement you are looking for or edit the Wikidata on Wikipedia from the editor itself.
  • Proposed solution: Make a tool that allows you to add data from Wikidata directly to an article's text. You should be able to:
    • Search for an item to add from.
    • Browse and select the value from on the item you want to show
    • Edit the statements and references of an item.
  • Who would benefit: Editors from making editing easier and readers from consuming centralized, directly-sourced Wikidata data.

  •   Support Integrating Wikidata and Wikipedia is vital, as it helps us add and update information in bulk, i.e. with much less effort. We don't information like YouTube subscribers updated manually; we want it handled automatically on Wikidata and then imported. However, for this approach to work, we need more beginner-friendly editing features. This tool would provide that. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 23:40, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
    I note that I support this despite it clearly being a larger task, closely related to "Editing Wikidata from Wikipedia", which was moved to "larger suggestions". {{u|Sdkb}}talk 23:44, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

  •   Support We can further integrating Wikidata, Wikifunctions to Wikipedia, Wikibooks and Wikiversity. That's a good idea to me, and we can search property/items/statements. Maybe a global Wikidata template? Thingofme (talk) 14:56, 30 January 2022 (UTC)
