Project Description

mediawiki is a python wrapper for the MediaWiki API. The goal is to allow users to quickly and efficiently pull data from the MediaWiki site of their choice instead of worrying about dealing directly with the API. As such, it does not force the use of a particular MediaWiki site. It defaults to Wikipedia but other MediaWiki sites can also be used.

Note: this library was designed for ease of use and simplicity, not for advanced use. If you plan on doing serious scraping or automated requests, please use Pywikipediabot (or one of the other more advanced Python MediaWiki API wrappers), which has a larger API, advanced rate limiting, and other features so we may be considerate of the MediaWiki infrastructure.


To installing mediawiki, simply clone the repository on GitHub, then run from the folder:

$ python install

mediawiki supports python versions 2.7 and 3.3 - 3.5

In the future, it would be great if mediawiki were available to install using pip!

Automated Tests

To run automated tests, one must simply run the following command from the downloaded folder:

$ python test


To build the documentation yourself run:

$ pip install sphinx
$ cd docs/
$ make html


Please see the changelog for a list of all changes.
