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 1.16 and higher, should work on 1.13, older versions may have bugs. The edit-API must be enabled on the site to use editing features. Please report any bugs to the tracker on the Google Code site.

wikitools will be roughly following the MediaWiki release cycle for major releases, ensuring that each release is compatible with the version of MediaWiki released at the same time. 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 SVN from the project homepage link. Old versions can be downloaded from the Google Code site in the deprecated downloads list.

Note that due to developer time constraints, only the most recent release and the SVN 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 1.1.1 release fixes one trivial bug in the 1.1 release and adds compatibility for the new login system in MediaWiki 1.15.3 and higher.
