Nookipedia provides the ability for developers to access its content for development projects through the MediaWiki API. We encourage developers to use Nookipedia's API to develop bots, tools, applications, and more! This page serves as an introduction to using Nookipedia's API, as well as a directory of existing developers' projects.


Nookipedia's content can be accessed through the MediaWiki API. Examples of possibilities include:

  • Extracting information from infoboxes
  • Getting lists of characters by game
  • Editor statistics
  • ...and much more!

If you have questions regarding using Nookipedia's API, feel free to post them on the talk page. Users who are actively developing projects using the API are also encouraged to join us on Discord. You'll be assigned the API developer role and will gain access to our support channel where you can ask questions directly. Contact one of Nookipedia's directors for more information.
