Since FANDOM wikis are built on top of MediaWiki, the MediaWiki API can be used to access most of the data on our sites. In addition, the FANDOM Content API provides access to many of our wiki-specific features.

MediaWiki API documentation Edit

The MediaWiki API is built into every wiki that runs MediaWiki (whether on FANDOM or elsewhere, such as Wikipedia). It gives functionality for interacting with articles in a way that covers many use-cases. You can visit api.php on any wiki to view raw MediaWiki API documentation.

Client libraries Edit

There are client libraries in many languages for these APIs. Please refer to the Client libraries page for more information and support matrix.
