WikiMon

Watch the RecentChanges IRC feed with Python. Support for various WikiMedia projects and languages.

Usage

At the moment, WikiMon's primary usage pattern is broadcasting changes over WebSocket. If you'd simply like to consume these messages, feel free to point a WebSocket client (such as your browser or Autobahn) at http://wikimon.hatnote.com/en/.

If you'd like to run your own copy of WikiMon, install the requirements below, and run the monitor_websocket.py command as follows:

usage: monitor_websocket.py [-h] [--project PROJECT] [--lang LANG]
                            [--port PORT] [--debug] [--loglevel LOGLEVEL]

broadcast realtime edits to a Mediawiki project over websockets

optional arguments:
    -h, --help           show this help message and exit
    --project PROJECT
    --lang LANG
    --port PORT          listen port for websocket connections
    --debug
    --loglevel LOGLEVEL

Requirements

  • Twisted==13.0.0
  • autobahn==0.5.14
  • wapiti

Format

Here are a couple example messages, as broadcast over WebSocket:

{
  "action": "edit",
  "change_size": 19,
  "flags": "M",
  "hashtags": [],
  "is_anon": false,
  "is_bot": false,
  "is_minor": true,
  "is_new": false,
  "is_unpatrolled": false,
  "mentions": [],
  "ns": "User talk",
  "page_title": "User talk:Manxruler",
  "parent_rev_id": "775894803",
  "rev_id": "775894650",
  "summary": "/* The battle of Kristiansand (1940) */",
  "url": "https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=775894803&oldid=775894650",
  "user": "Carsten R D"
}

{
  "action": "edit",
  "change_size": -12,
  "flags": null,
  "geo_ip": {
    "city": "Salisbury",
    "country_name": "United States",
    "latitude": 38.3761,
    "longitude": -75.6086,
    "region_name": "Maryland"
  },
  "hashtags": [],
  "is_anon": true,
  "is_bot": false,
  "is_minor": false,
  "is_new": false,
  "is_unpatrolled": false,
  "mentions": [],
  "ns": "Main",
  "page_title": "Evanescence (Evanescence album)",
  "parent_rev_id": "775894800",
  "rev_id": "774995266",
  "summary": "/* Credits and personnel */ \"Personnel\" is sufficient",
  "url": "https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=775894800&oldid=774995266",
  "user": "71.200.123.192"
}

As you can see, the set of keys sent is always the same. Note that the flags key is redundant, as it is parsed out into is_minor, is_bot, is_unpatrolled, and is_new.

Geolocation

Geolocation is done in process, using maxmind's free dataset. See the GeoDB directory for more info.
