Just for fun I just “asked” the Wikidata, which software (or actually anything in its database) is implemented using rust. I did this using the SparQL endpoint. There are not many results, and I did not manage to remove doubles. Still, this may be usable to both track the spread of rust, and also may help rustaceans to improve wikipedia / wikidata.
Here is the link (the query is url encoded). Hit the “Play Button” on the left to see the results.
Things that are implemented in Rust - SparQL query
Note that this query specifically asks for “implemented in”, not other rust-relationships. Though, it should be possible to query all relationships things have to rust. EDIT: Here is a query that lists all relationships wikidata items have to the rust language. I did not manage to get their labels, though. I’m not sure why.
What do you think? Would it be useful to track the spread like this? Any Ideas for other queries? Are “wikipedian rustaceans” present in here?
PS: I’m not a wikipedian but recently got an interest in SparQL and the semantic web. I recommend the “Learning SparQL” Book (Oreilly) in case you have also interest in this.
