wikipush / wikibackup / wikiedit / wiknuke / wikirestore/ wikiquery / wikiupload / wikiuser scripts

Setup method

If you installed with the method above console_script will have been added to your environment. You can e.g. check

which wikipush
/Users/wf/Library/Python/3.8/bin/wikipush

and there should be a wikipush script in your path.

shared script

This script is the base script called "wikipush" which can be used using different names by hard linking as outlined above. This approach is deprecated and therefore incomplete as of 2020-12

#!/bin/bash
# WF 2020-10-31
# wrapper for wikipush python
script=$(python -c "import os;import sys;print (os.path.realpath(sys.argv[1]))" $BASH_SOURCE)
scriptname=$(basename $script)
scriptdir=$(dirname $script)
base=$scriptdir/..
export PYTHONPATH="${PYTHONPATH}:$base"
case $scriptname in
   "wikipush")
	python -m wikibot.wikipush "$@"
	;;
   "wikiedit")
   	python -m wikibot.wikiedit "$@"
   	;;
   "wikiuser")
	python -m wikibot.wikiuser "$@"
	;;
   "wikinuke")
   	python -m wikibot.wikinuke "$@"
   	;;
   "wikiupload")
   	python -m wikibot.wikiupload "$@"
   	;;
   *)
	echo "undefined wikipush script behavior:  $scriptname"
	;;

WikiPush

WikiPush allows to copy pages from one wiki to another including the images on the page. To identify yourself you use the credential property files created with the wikiuser script (using python) or the Mediawiki-Japi CommandLine

usage

wikipush -h
family and mylang are not set.
Defaulting to family='test' and mylang='test'.
usage: wikipush.py [-h] [-d] [-V] [-l] [-f] [-i] [-q QUERY] -s SOURCE -t
                   TARGET [-p PAGES [PAGES ...]]

USAGE

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -d, --debug           set debug level [default: None]
  -V, --version         show program's version number and exit
  -f, --force           force to delete pages - default is 'dry' run only listing pages
  -q QUERY, --query QUERY
                        select pages with given SMW ask query
  -qf QUERYFIELD, --queryField QUERYFIELD
                        query result field which contains page

  -p PAGES [PAGES ...], --pages PAGES [PAGES ...]
                        list of page Titles to be pushed

Example

The default behavior is a dry run only listing whether the pages exist

wikinuke -t test -p deleteMe1 deleteMe2 deleteMe3
deleting 3 pages in test (dry run)
1/3 (  33%): deleting deleteMe1 ...👍
2/3 (  67%): deleting deleteMe2 ...👍
3/3 ( 100%): deleting deleteMe3 ...👍

After checking you might want to (carefully) use the "-f" option to actually force the deletion:

wikinuke -t test -p deleteMe1 deleteMe2 deleteMe3 -f
deleting 3 pages in test (forced)
1/3 (  33%): deleting deleteMe1 ...✅
2/3 (  67%): deleting deleteMe2 ...✅
3/3 ( 100%): deleting deleteMe3 ...✅

wikirestore

Tool to restore wiki pages from an local backup, created with wikibackup, to an destination wiki.

Arguments

Argument Description
-s Source wiki - Only used to query page names. The queried page names will then be looked up in the backup.
-t Target wiki - The backup is restored in this wiki
-q SMW query to select the pages to be restored. Note that the query is only used to select the page names the actual backup is then restored from the local backup.
-p Names of the pages to be restored
--backupPath define location of the backup. Default is the default backup location of the target wiki.

If argument -s is used a page query is executed therefore all arguments related to an page query can be used such as -ui and --limit.

Examples

--backupPath

Use this argument to define a different backup folder

wikibackup

 1 $ wikibackup -s orth --backupPath "/home/user/wikibackup/orth_copy" -q "[[isA::Event]]" --limit 10
 2 
 3 downloading 10 pages from orth to /home/user/wikibackup/orth_copy
 4 1/10 (  10%): downloading " DBKDA 2021" ...✅

wikirestore

$ wikirestore -t orth --backupPath "/home/user/wikibackup/orth_copy"

restoring 10 pages from /home/user/wikibackup/orth_copy to orth
1/10 (  10%): restore 2021 ICIMP ...✅
2/10 (  20%): restore "ICNS 2021" ...✅
3/10 (  30%): restore 3PGIC 2010 ...✅
4/10 (  40%): restore 4S4D 2017 ...✅

Scenario: Restore triangle

$ wikirestore -s or -q "[[isA:Event]]" -t orth --backupPath "/home/user/wikibackup/orth_copy"

With this command we query all page names that are an Event from the wiki or and restore them in the wiki orth with the version of the page that is stored in /home/user/wikibackup/orth_copy.

wikiupload

wikiupload.py allows to mass upload files

usage

wikiupload -h
usage: wikiupload.py [-h] [-d] [-V] --files FILES [FILES ...] [-f] -t TARGET

wikiuser

wikiuser.py creates credential files and assigns a WikiId under which you can now operate. This simplifies access to your wiki. The credential file is compatible to the Java Mediawiki-Japi see CommandLine#Credential_mode

usage

wikiuser -h
usage: wikiuser.py [-h] [-d] [-V] [-e EMAIL] [-f FILEPATH] [-l URL]
                   [-s SCRIPTPATH] [-p PASSWORD] [-u USER] [-v VERSION]

                        wiki Id
  -y, --yes             immediately store without asking

Example

E.g. if you have an account on www.semantic-mediawiki.org you can start wikiuser in interactive mode.

wikiuser
email: john@doe.com
scriptPath: /w
user: jd
url: http://www.semantic-mediawiki.org
version: Mediawiki 1.33
wikiId: smw
password: *****
shall i store jd smw? yes/no y/ny

Now you can e.g. use "smw" as the wikiid for this wiki when using wikipush

Prerequisites

You might want to prepare some credential ini files with the wikiuser script or Mediawiki-Japi CommandLine.

user-config.py

pywikibot expects a user-config.py file. The minimum recommended file for intranet usecases is:

# https://stackoverflow.com/a/60885381/1497139
# Slow down the robot such that it never makes a second page edit within
# 'put_throttle' seconds.
put_throttle = 0
# avoid warnings ...
family='bitplan'
mylang='en'

The easiest way is to put it at $HOME/.pywikibot/user-config.py

Features

Encrypted credential handling

Py-3rdparty-mediawiki allows using pywikibot by simply giving each wiki an id and using the credential information created by MediaWiki-Japi. The needed family file is automatically created and registered. If you'd like to get a pure python solution for credential handling please file an issue on github - it's no big deal but i personally don't need it yet since i'm fine with the new CommandLine feature added recently.

Semantic MediaWiki API support

see https://github.com/WolfgangFahl/py-3rdparty-mediawiki/issues/1

Example

from wikibot.wikibot import WikiBot
wikibot=WikiBot.ofWikiId("test2")
wikibot.site ...
