pip install -U mw-api-client

To install the latest development (likely unstable) version:

git clone https://github.com/Kenny2github/mw-api-client.git
cd mw-api-client
python setup.py install

Example Usage

import mw_api_client as mw

Get a page:

wp = mw.Wiki("https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php", "MyCoolBot/0.0.0")

wp.login("kenny2wiki", password)

sandbox = wp.page("User:Kenny2wiki/sandbox")

Edit page:

# Get the page
contents = sandbox.read()

# Change
contents += "\n This is a test!"
summary = "Made a test edit"

# Submit
sandbox.edit(contents, summary)

List pages in category:

for page in wp.category("Redirects").categorymembers():
    print(page.title)

Remove all uses of a template:

stub = wp.template("Stub")

# Pages that transclude stub, main namespace only
target_pages = list(stub.transclusions(namespace=0))

# Sort by title because it's prettier that way
target_pages.sort(key=lambda p: p.title)

for page in target_pages:
    page.replace("{{stub}}", "")

Patrol all recent changes in the Help namespace:

rcs = wp.recentchanges(rcnamespace=12)

for rc in rcs:
    rc.patrol()
