Class: WikidataAutocompleteAdapter

WikidataAutocompleteAdapter()

This module performs shallow lookups on Wikidata. They are shallow in that they only load the information that needs to be displayed to the user in their current language. The backend version of this adapter performs the actual deep lookup for all languages.

Constructor

new WikidataAutocompleteAdapter()

See AbstractAutocompleteAdapter for parameter documentation, not shown here due to jsdoc bug.

acDelay :Number

We override the default; Wikidata can take more of a beating than some other sites. :)

Source:

acPrimaryTextKey :String

We override the default, because we may display different text (stored in this field) than what we pass along to the application (stored in the label field). The display text may include a parenthetical component that highlights a match against an alias, rather than the primary label.

  • String

excludedItemClasses :Array.<String>

Items with these classes are typically not going to be the target of reviews.

  • Array.<String>
Source:

fetchResults :Number

Because we exclude certain item classes (e.g., disambiguation pages), we fetch a larger number of results than we may need, since we may eliminate some of them. The ratio configured here has proven to strike a good balance where few queries result in zero "good" results.

Type:
  • Number

nativeToWikidata :Object

How do lib.reviews language code translate to Wikidata language codes? lib.reviews language code are used as keys, Wikidata codes as values.

Since Wikidata supports a superset of languages and most language code are identical, we only enumerate exceptions.

  • Object
