Python package for working with MediaWiki XML content dumps

Project description

mediawiki-dump

Build Status

pip install mediawiki_dump

Python3 package for working with MediaWiki XML content dumps.

Wikipedia (bz2 compressed) and Wikia (7zip) content dumps are supported.

Dependencies

In order to read 7zip archives (used by Wikia's XML dumps) you need to install libarchive:

sudo apt install libarchive-dev

API

Tokenizer

Allows you to clean up the wikitext:

from mediawiki_dump.tokenizer import clean
clean('[[Foo|bar]] is a link')
'bar is a link'

And then tokenize the text:

from mediawiki_dump.tokenizer import tokenize
tokenize('11. juni 2007 varð kunngjørt, at Svínoyar kommuna verður løgd saman við Klaksvíkar kommunu eftir komandi bygdaráðsval.')
['juni', 'varð', 'kunngjørt', 'at', 'Svínoyar', 'kommuna', 'verður', 'løgd', 'saman', 'við', 'Klaksvíkar', 'kommunu', 'eftir', 'komandi', 'bygdaráðsval']

Dump reader

Fetch and parse dumps (using a local file cache):

from mediawiki_dump.dumps import WikipediaDump
from mediawiki_dump.reader import DumpReader

dump = WikipediaDump('fo')
pages = DumpReader().read(dump)

[page.title for page in pages][:10]

['Main Page', 'Brúkari:Jon Harald Søby', 'Forsíða', 'Ormurin Langi', 'Regin smiður', 'Fyrimynd:InterLingvLigoj', 'Heimsyvirlýsingin um mannarættindi', 'Bólkur:Kvæði', 'Bólkur:Yrking', 'Kjak:Forsíða']

read method yields the DumpEntry object for each revision.

By using DumpReaderArticles class you can read article pages only:

import logging; logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

from mediawiki_dump.dumps import WikipediaDump
from mediawiki_dump.reader import DumpReaderArticles

dump = WikipediaDump('fo')
reader = DumpReaderArticles()
pages = reader.read(dump)

print([page.title for page in pages][:25])

print(reader.get_dump_language())  # fo

Will give you:

Reading Wikia's dumps

import logging; logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

from mediawiki_dump.dumps import WikiaDump
from mediawiki_dump.reader import DumpReaderArticles

dump = WikiaDump('plnordycka')
pages = DumpReaderArticles().read(dump)

print([page.title for page in pages][:25])

Fetching full history

Pass full_history to BaseDump constructor to fetch the XML content dump with full history:

import logging; logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

from mediawiki_dump.dumps import WikiaDump
from mediawiki_dump.reader import DumpReaderArticles

dump = WikiaDump('macbre', full_history=True)  # fetch full history, including old revisions
pages = DumpReaderArticles().read(dump)

print('\n'.join([repr(page) for page in pages]))

Will give you:

INFO:DumpReaderArticles:Parsing completed, entries found: 384

Reading dumps of selected articles

You can use mwclient Python library and fetch "live" dumps of selected articles from any MediaWiki-powered site.

import mwclient
site = mwclient.Site('vim.fandom.com', path='/')

from mediawiki_dump.dumps import MediaWikiClientDump
from mediawiki_dump.reader import DumpReaderArticles

dump = MediaWikiClientDump(site, ['Vim documentation', 'Tutorial'])

pages = DumpReaderArticles().read(dump)

print('\n'.join([repr(page) for page in pages]))

Will give you:

<DumpEntry "Vim documentation" by Anonymous at 2019-07-05T09:39:47+00:00>
<DumpEntry "Tutorial" by Anonymous at 2019-07-05T09:41:19+00:00>
