#quick statement generator for software version identifier (QSGSVI)

this program was made to add all the missing software versions/releases on wikidata to it, by generating QuickStatements V1 commands.

this was created in an effort to do more programming (due to the lack thereof (website does not count)), and to fill in the gaps of synapse on wikidata with the software version identifier section (it's like, a bit less than a year behind as of 2022-05-18).

this is intended for big gaps, not new releases. you can use the wikidata interface to add a single new release too.


go install git.sr.ht/~jacksonchen666/quick_statement_generator_for_software_version_identifier/cmd/QSGSVI@latest

#building (for devs not users)

go build ./cmd/QSGSVI/


run -help for command arguments.

a github project must be specified, and a wikidata item must be specified.

if there are some differences in interpretation (like rc means release candidate for version type), please modify the source code yourself.

note: the output is sorted from the newest release at the top, to the oldest at the bottom, and it will match on wikidata after adding it. to reverse the output, i'd suggesting using the tac command like it's cat (see man page for more info)

quickstatments are on stdout, everything else stderr.

#in quickstatements

copy the output of the program, import as v1 commands, and do not use "batch mode" or "run in background" because that won't work and will break everything.
