I'm looking for some service that provides short definitions for IT-related terms e.g C++, Java, MySQL, MongoDB, Linux etc.
Stack overflow tags system has similar functionality and it would be sufficient for me but there is additional information about tag itself in addition to term definition.
For example, I'm sending this request.
... "excerpt": "Apache Maven is a build automation and project management tool used primarily for Java projects. This tag is for questions that don't relate to a specific Maven version. Use the gradle tag instead for questions relating to Gradle.", "tag_name":"maven" ...
I need exactly the first sentence.
Does anybody know something similar to this?
Or maybe there is a more appropriate way of using SO tags API rather than requesting tag wikis.
