Wikipedia tools (for Humans)

https://travis-ci.org/siznax/wptools.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/github/siznax/wptools/badge.svg?branch=master

Python and command-line MediaWiki access for Humans

  • get page extracts, image, Infobox data, Wikidata, and more
  • get a random page, category, or site
  • get page statistics
  • get category members
  • get site info and stats
  • get data in any language

This package is intended to make it as easy as possible to get data from MediaWiki instances, expose more Wikidata, and extend Wikimedia APIs just for kicks. We say "(for Humans)" because that is a goal. Questions, feedback, and especially contributions are welcome!
