Daily featured content

Many Wikipedias include a daily featured article and other curated content on their homepages. You can see an example of this on English Wikipedia and Hebrew Wikipedia. The Wikimedia API lets you access this featured content programmatically and add high-quality, multilingual knowledge to your apps.
