Semantic Forms is offering an easy way to input data via convenient forms and to populate templates. Semantic Forms works with Semantic MediaWiki Cargo and now also on its own.

When using forms, no wikitext is needed for input, the styling of output can be standardized and properties can be stored automatically via template. Multiple values can be stored via arraymaps, which wouldn't be possible without Semantic Forms. Creation of the corresponding pages is easy with certain specific special pages, like Special:CreateClass, Special:CreateForm, Special:CreateTemplate etc.
