Pywikibot

The Pywikibot framework is a Python library that interfaces with the MediaWiki API version 1.14 or higher.

Also included are various general function scripts that can be adapted for different tasks.

Quick start

git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/pywikibot/core.git
cd core
git submodule update --init
python pwb.py script_name

Our installation guide has more details for advanced usage.

Usage

If you wish to write your own script it's very easy to get started:

import pywikibot
site = pywikibot.Site('en', 'wikipedia')  # The site we want to run our bot on
page = pywikibot.Page(site, 'Wikipedia:Sandbox')
page.text = page.text.replace('foo', 'bar')
page.save('Replacing "foo" with "bar"')  # Saves the page

For more documentation on pywikibot see our docs.
