How can I get certain text from wikipedia?



Take this for example:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Bill_of_Rights


Under the "Amendments" section, I want to get what each bullet point says, and display them in a nice list in an android application. I know there's a wikimedia api, but I have absolutely no idea how to use it, and from what I understand of it, you can get the text under a section, but I'm not sure if you can get each bullet point separately.


What would be the best way to do this? Or instead of this, should I just spend my time copying the text from over 300 pages onto a text file, and reading it in the application?

Highlight the text before a Wikipedia template
Programming Languages

Wikipedia has some templates that can be used to highlight the text that precedes a template (for example, {{clarify span|text to clarify}} and {{citation needed span|text to cite}}). Would it be possible to create a MediaWiki template to highlight text next to any template (in this case, using {{further explanation needed}} as the template)?


{{clarifyUsingTemplate|{{further explanation needed}}|This is the text to clarify}}.

What does wikipedia use for text and revision diffs
Programming Languages

I'm trying to take 2 versions of text (10 pages long) and compare the 2 to produce the difference. I know Wikipedia has a similar feature to compare revisions. Does anyone know what they use? I'm hoping they're using a php-driven solution.


Wikipedia : Java library to remove wikipedia text markup removal

Wikipedia text download
Programming Languages

I am looking to download full Wikipedia text for my college project. Do I have to write my own spider to download this or is there a public dataset of Wikipedia available online?


To just give you some overview of my project, I want to find out the interesting words of few articles I am interested in. But to find these interesting words, I am planning to apply tf/idf to calculate term frequency for each word and pick the ones with high frequency. But to calculate the tf, I need to know the total occurrences in whole of Wikipedia.


Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you
Bala


wikipedia download in plain text - is it possible?
Programming Languages

Hello,
Sorry, I wasn't sure where to post this question...
Does anyone know about downloading the Wikipedia database?
I would like to download a part of the wikipedia database (specifically, artists) without all the software and code and everything. But the only way I can find to download it is by downloading all this software and everything and needing to have all this stuff running, like apache and stuff. Isn't there a way that I can just download a text-only version of it?
Basically I would just like to have the information, the text, and that is it. Without needing any installation so
