Python package for interacting with a MediaWiki wiki

Project description

A Python package for interacting with a MediaWiki wiki using the MediaWiki API. Designed for MediaWiki version 1.20 and higher, should work on 1.13+. The edit-API must be enabled on the site to use editing features. Please report any bugs to the tracker on Github.

If you are using the development alpha version of MediaWiki (as Wikipedia does), you should consider using the development version of wikitools, which can be downloaded via Github from the project homepage link.

Note that due to developer time constraints, only the most recent release and the Git version are supported and receive bugfix releases. For major bugs affecting old versions, a patch may be released.

The simplejson package is required for Python < 2.6 and the poster package is required for file upload support (both are available on pypi).

The 1.3 release fixes several bugs and adds support for MediaWiki’s new token retrieval and query continuation method. See the changelog for more details.

Files are signed with the author’s public key: 0E07BEA4.
