User Reviews

  • Good bot framework for MediaWiki wikis. :)

  • This a very useful tool, and I am very eager to see and download the 3.x compatible version of Pywikipedia, this would be at least very helpful, especially for non-unicode applications (no need to do some tedious and random decodes/encodes anymore).
