tidywikidatar - Interact with Wikidata and get tidy data frames in response

The goal of tidywikidatar is to facilitate interaction with Wikidata: all responses are transformed into data frames or simple character vectors it is easy to enable efficient caching in a local sqlite database (integration with other databases is also available) If you want to benefit of the wealth of information stored by Wikidata, but you do not like SPARQL queries and nested lists, then you may find tidywikidatar useful.
