Wiki.Net – An unofficial C# Wikipedia API


Searches Wikipedia (duh!) in multiple defined languages and returns (per result):

  • Title
  • Page ID
  • Word Count
  • Size (bytes?)
  • Text Preview
  • URL of page
  • Time of last edit

Getting Started


You can install via NuGet using the package manager command:

Install-Package Wiki.Net

You can also download the binaries from the releases.


string searchString = "Computer";
WikiSearchSettings searchSettings = new WikiSearchSettings
	{RequestId = "Request ID", ResultLimit = 5, ResultOffset = 2, Language = "en"};

WikiSearchResponse response = WikiSearcher.Search(searchString, searchSettings);

Console.WriteLine($"\nResults found ({searchString}):\n");
foreach (WikiSearchResult result in response.Query.SearchResults)
		$"\t{result.Title} ({result.WordCount} words, {result.Size} bytes, id {result.PageId}):\t{result.Preview}...\n\tAt {result.Url(searchSettings.Language)}\n\tLast edited at {result.LastEdited}\n");

Upgrading from 2.x to 3.x

In 3.0, we simplified the namespace of Wiki.Net to WikiDotNet.

To upgrade from 2.x version of Wiki.Net to 3.x, you need to change all of the using CreepysinStudios.WikiDotNet to using WikiDotNet in your projects. The easiest way would just be to do a replace all in your entire solution.
