A parser for wikipedia citation templates

Project Description

This Python library wraps Wikipedia’s citation processing code (written in Lua) to parse citation templates. For instance, there are many different ways to specify the authors of a citation: this codes maps all of them to the same representation.

Distributed under the MIT license.

Dependencies: lupa, mwparserfromhell

Example

Let’s parse the reference section of this article:

import mwparserfromhell
import wikiciteparser

mwtext = """
