These are scripts to import legacy wiki engines (MediaWiki, Sycamore / WikiSpot.org) into LocalWiki.
Very rough right now. Please tell us about your experiences on #localwiki on Freenode.
To import pages from an existing MediaWiki site into LocalWiki, do the following:
1. Activate the virtualenv used for LocalWiki (typical path shown)::
$ source /usr/share/localwiki/env/bin/activate
2. Install the localwiki-importers package::
(env)$ pip install localwiki-import-wikis
3. Add 'localwiki_importers' to LOCAL_INSTALLED_APPS in /usr/share/localwiki/conf/localsettings.py::
LOCAL_INSTALLED_APPS = ('import_wikis',)
4. Now you can run the import command like this::
$ localwiki-manage import_mediawiki
Follow the prompts to complete the import!
5. Build the search index::
$ localwiki-manage rebuild_index
6. The import will grab users and their edit history, but it won't import their
email address or password. If you have a way to obtain the old user
passwords, you can run the following::
$ localwiki-manage import_mediawiki --users_email_csv=<users_csv>
Where `users_csv` is a CSV file of the form username,email,<optional real="" name="">.
Users will then be able to log in after they reset their password.
Here's how to get a users CSV file using MySQL::
SELECT user_name,user_email,user_real_name FROM wiki_user INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/users.csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'
The file will then be at `/tmp/users.csv`.
There is an example apache config in conf/ that will help with migrating
old mediawiki-style URLs. We strive for near 100% URL compatibility
with MediaWiki because breaking links just isn't cool.
