A Ruby framework for MediaWiki API manipulation.  Features out of the box:

* Simple, elegant syntax for common operations
* Handles login, edit, move etc tokens for you
* List, search operations work around API limits to fetch all results
* Support for maxlag detection and automated retries on 503
* Integrated logging
* Tested up to MediaWiki 1.19

== Example

Simple page creation script:

 require 'media_wiki'
 mw = MediaWiki::Gateway.new('http://my-wiki.example/w/api.php')
 mw.login('RubyBot', 'pa$$w0rd')
 mw.create('PageTitle', 'Hello world!', :summary => 'My first page')

== Status

This gem is no longer in active development.  Bugs will be fixed if reported, and pull requests that add new features are more than welcome, but asking for new features is unlikely to make them materialize out of thin air.
