A set of utilities for processing MediaWiki XML dump data.

Project description

# MediaWiki XML

This library contains a collection of utilities for efficiently processing MediaWiki’s XML database dumps. There are two important concerns that this module intends to address: complexity and performance of streaming XML parsing. This library enables memory efficent stream processing of XML dumps with a simple [iterator](https://pythonhosted.org/mwxml/iteration.html) strategy. This library also implements a distributed processing strategy (see [map()](https://pythonhosted.org/mwxml/map.html)) that enables parallel processing of many XML dump files at the same time.

## Example

>>> import mwxml
>>>
>>> dump = mwxml.Dump.from_file(open("dump.xml"))
>>> print(dump.site_info.name, dump.site_info.dbname)
Wikipedia enwiki
>>>
>>> for page in dump:
...     for revision in page:
...        print(revision.id)
...
