MediaWiki API client
mwklient (forked from mwclient v0.9.3) is a lightweight Python client library to the MediaWiki API which provides access to most API functionality.
It works with Python 3.5+ and supports MediaWiki API 1.16+,
for functions not available in the current MediaWiki, a
MediaWikiVersionError is raised.
mwklient vs mwclient
The original project mwclient is still active and supports Python 2.7 too. mwklient is forked from the version 0.9.3 of mwclient and wraps some more api_calls (see next section). Moreover, it will support default error handlers for the most common calls (more details in next commits). Finally, it has a MIT license as well as the original mwclient.
