Most of the data on our wiki is extracted from a JSON file we've converted to a CSV spreadsheet. Then we manually update each page template (more than 1,000) with the data.

What I'm curious about is if we convert the csv into a wiki table on our wiki, could we access the contents of that table and pull the data into our templates automatically? Is there an example of someone already doing something of this nature?

I've done the opposite, pulling template data into a table, with Dynamic Page Lists. I think Semantic MediaWiki is the same, although I've never used it. Would this be any good for you? Cqm 23:50, 20 Dec 2012 (UTC)
