I was interested in this too, I wrote a perl script to pull the data out of the html table from that wikipedia article.
I have not yet written an instant answer plugin myself, so I' might not the best person to function as a guide. But I'd love to work on the data source, if you want to implement the actual goodie (since I didn't start myself).
I made a new branch for this
on my github
Look in the
directory if you want. There is a copy of the html table from wikipedia and a perl script that converts it into json. It needs some work still, but it's a start. I'm not sure what the preferred way to store data in text files is for goodies, but i went with json.
I also added test file (/t/IndependenceDay.t) and the actual goodie script (/lib/DDG/Goodie/IndependenceDay.pm). Those two are just copies of the template ones, I have't actually touched them.
