A set of utilities for connecting to and querying a MediaWiki database.

Project description

# MediaWiki database

This library provides a set of utilities for connecting to and querying a MediaWiki database.

The Schema() object is a thin wrapper around a sqlalchemy Engine and Meta adapts to the local database setup. When using Schema() member table ORM, the internal mapping will translate between public replicas views (e.g. revision_userindex, logging_userindex and logging_logindex) transparently. This allows you to write one query that will run as expected on either schema.

At the moment, the execute() method does not make any such conversion, but a helper attribute public_replica that is True when querying a views via public replica and False when querying the production database.

## Example

>>> import mwdb
>>> enwiki = mwdb.Schema("mysql+pymysql://enwiki.labsdb/enwiki_p" +
...                      "?read_default_file=~/replica.my.cnf")
>>> enwiki.public_replica
True
>>>
>>> with enwiki.transaction() as session:
...     print(session.query(enwiki.revision_userindex)
...           .filter_by(rev_user_text="EpochFail")
...           .count())
...
4302
>>> result = enwiki.execute("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM revision_userindex " +
...                         "WHERE rev_user=:user_id",
...                         {'user_id': 6396742})
>>>
>>> print(result.fetchone())
(4302,)
