A Python library and collection of tools that automate work on MediaWiki sites. Originally designed for Wikipedia, it is now used throughout the Wikimedia Foundation's projects and on many other MediaWiki wikis including wikidata service.

We do not use sourceforge.net anymore, but are very grateful for their support in the past. Please see our website at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Pywikibot

Our pypi package could be found at https://pypi.org/project/pywikibot/

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).
