for the upcoming Ruby Open Data Week 
I am looking into the state-of-wikipedia & wikidata gems, apps,
getting started guides, etc.
in the ruby universe.
Any recommendations or tips & tricks more than welcome.
PS: Let's celebrate 20 Years of Wikipedia! Happy Birthday! [2a][2b]
PPS: To kick off the comments - wikiscript  is the (early stage)
gem series / family
I am working on incl. wikitext abstract syntax tree (AST), parser,
and more upcoming - if I find some (free) time :-).
