Run on today:
Run on the latest 10 days from today:
Run on a specific date (year-month-day):
Run on a specific date and for 10 days before it:
./bot.php --days=10 --from=2018-03-13
Quit if someone was running the bot just
5 minutes ago (that is the default behaviour):
Ask before saving and enable verbose mode:
./bot.php --ask --verbose
To fetch the updates:
git pull --recurse-submodules
Most of the behaviours — as the content of the categories, the pages, their edit summaries, etc. — can be changed simply hacking the content of the files from the /templates directory. Trust me, you are able to do it.
Start becoming familiar with their structure:
<!-- START DOCUMENTATION --> This is the place for some documentation, expecially about "placeholders". <!-- START SPECIFIC EXAMPLE --> This is the place for a specific example <!-- START TEMPLATE --> This is the place for the most important part of this file. This part is what this template will generates. It uses stuff like "$1" or "%1%02d" as generic placeholders.
To be honest: everything above the
<!-- START TEMPLATE --> line it's pure documentation sugar. It's written to help you. I've spent some minutes on them. Please RTFM. asd
A non-traumatic template example can be found here. It describes the generation of the yearly category.
You may not want to know this: HTTP connections, MediaWiki APIs (including login and tokens etc.), and other stuff, are handled by the boz-mw framework.
