Semantic MediaWiki -- Via Reddit 2019-1-9

From /u/Quidditywiki

Thoughts:

You might want to use Semantic MediaWiki, although it adds a lot of complexity, but also power: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Semantic_MediaWiki

Or, You might just want to keep it simple and use tables. If you can install the VisualEditor then that will make editing tables a LOT easier (everything except cell-background-color): https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:VisualEditor

Hope that helps. (Note: I'm not a developer, and have no experience using Semantic_MediaWiki, I'm just an editor who is aware of some of its uses)
