Simple wrapper for the Mediawiki API

Project description

# MediaWiki API

This MIT Licensed library provides a very simple convenience wrapper around the [MediaWiki API](http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API). and includes support for authenticated sessions. It requires Python 3 and that your wiki is using MediaWiki 1.15.3 or greater.

## Example

>>> import mwapi
>>>
>>> session = mwapi.Session('https://en.wikipedia.org')
>>>
>>> print(session.get(action='query', meta='userinfo'))
{'query': {'userinfo': {'anon': '', 'name': '75.72.203.28', 'id': 0}},
 'batchcomplete': ''}
>>>
>>> print(session.get(action='query', prop='revisions', revids=32423425))
{'query': {'pages': {'1429626': {'ns': 0, 'revisions': [{'user':
 'Wknight94', 'parentid': 32276615, 'comment':
 '/* References */ Removing less-specific cat', 'revid': 32423425,
 'timestamp': '2005-12-23T00:07:17Z'}], 'title': 'Grigol Ordzhonikidze',
 'pageid': 1429626}}}, 'batchcomplete': ''}
