Quick intro to Wikibase
Wikibase is the main piece of software powering the Wikidata project, a relatively recent sister project of Wikipedia. Wikidata is to structured data what Wikipedia is to raw, unstructured content. A Wikibase instance such as EurHisFirms’s or Wikidata consists mainly of items, each uniquely identified by an identifier and having a label, a description and any number of aliases in as many languages as needed.
