Pywikibot

The Pywikibot framework is a Python library that interfaces with the MediaWiki API version 1.19 or higher.

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

For further information about the library excluding scripts see the full code documentation.

Quick start

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

Or to install using PyPI (excluding scripts)

pip install -U setuptools
pip install pywikibot

Our installation guide has more details for advanced usage.

Basic 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

Wikibase Usage

Wikibase is a flexible knowledge base software that drives Wikidata. A sample pywikibot script for getting data from Wikibase:

import pywikibot
site = pywikibot.Site('wikipedia:en')
repo = site.data_repository()  # the wikibase repository for given site
page = repo.page_from_repository('Q91')  # create a local page for the given item
item = pywikibot.ItemPage(repo, 'Q91')  # a repository item
data = item.get()  # get all item data from repository for this item

For more documentation on pywikibot see our docs.
