    Project mention: [Python] How can I clean up Wikipedia's XML backup dump to create dictionaries of commonly used words for multiple languages? | | 2021-10-12

    In particular what you're looking at is not XML but wikitext. I found a discussion on stackoverflow about solving the same problem of getting text from wikitext. Seems like the most promising solution in Python since you already have the dump is to run each page through mwparserfromhell. According to the top stackoverflow answer you could use something like

  • danker

    Compute PageRank on >3 billion Wikipedia links on off-the-shelf hardware.

    Project mention: How to get the links of 15,000 Wiki-articles | | 2021-02-23

    Oh cool, I had my students do PageRank when I taught that class. Implementing the actual PageRank algorithm should be pretty easy, gathering and processing the data into usable form is harder, especially in Matlab which does not excel at that kind of task. You might compare your program to danker for verification and validation. I think Wikipedia also makes their page view / article popularity data available, which might be of interest to you.
