A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).
Path of Exile Wiki:Data query API
|This page contains development information and is intended for developers and not regular end users.|
Just like other wikis the Path of Exile wiki can be accessed through the Mediawiki API. This allows for much faster page editing as well as data retrieval.
Using the API to retrieve Path of Exile data
If you need certain data such as item or mod data for your tools it is highly advised to use the semantic API to retrieve it. It will be much faster then scraping the wiki pages and reduce the overhead significantly on both your script and the wiki server.
When using properties, it's advisable to check the documentation of the module or template that adds them or the page of the property. You can also check the list of all properties for some information. There's also Special:Browse where it is possible to see what properties a page have.
All items on the wiki are exposed by Template:Item and are fully powered by semantic media wiki - this means you can query just about any property of an item to create convenient item lists.
Browse by subject
This will return a json list containing the properties and their associated values on the page Rebuke of the Vaal
For any results found, it will print out Property:Has name.
