mwcleric.auth_credentials module

class mwcleric.auth_credentials.AuthCredentials(username=None, password=None, user_file=None, start_over=False)

Bases: object

Stores username and password for future use with a WikiClient. Specify either user_file or both username and password.

If using a file, files can be either located in the same directory as the code, or in the config directory of the user. If files in both locations exist, files in the former location will trump those in the latter.

Parameters
  • username – Username, this must include an @ if using a bot password

  • password – Password, this is the actual value of the password, not the “name” of a “bot password”

  • user_file – Either a file or a system variable as a nicknamed account to look for

class mwcleric.fandom_client.FandomClient(wiki: str, client: Optional[mwcleric.clients.site.Site] = None, credentials: Optional[mwcleric.auth_credentials.AuthCredentials] = None, lang: Optional[str] = None, **kwargs)

Bases: mwcleric.wiki_client.WikiClient

Functions for connecting to and editing specifically Fandom wikis.

Create a site object.

Parameters

search(search_term: str, title_list: List[str], limit: int = 500)

Searches a specified list of titles for a given term. A replacement for Fandom’s lack of insource search.

This method paginates the requests to fetch page sources, so it’s relatively efficient, especially if you are logged in as an administrator with apihighlimits.

Parameters
  • search_term – The term to search

  • title_list – A list of page titles.

  • limit – The pagination limit when querying for page texts. If you are logged out or not a systop, probably 50.

Returns

Nothing, will print a list of the results

search_namespace(search_term: str, namespace: Union[int, str], limit: int = 500)

Searches a specified namespace for a search term.

If you want to search the entire wiki, use search instead.

Parameters
  • search_term – The term to search

  • namespace – The namespace within which to search for the term.

  • limit – The pagination limit when querying for page texts. If you are logged out or not a systop, probably 50.

Returns

Nothing, will print a list of the results

mwcleric.page_modifier module

class mwcleric.page_modifier.PageModifierBase(site: mwcleric.wiki_client.WikiClient, page_list=None, title_list=None, limit=- 1, summary=None, startat_page=None, tags=None, skip_pages=None, quiet=False, lag=0, **data)

Bases: object

Update pages on a wiki by using update_wikitext or update_plaintext.

Available attributes you can change:

  • self.current_text (do this in self.update_plaintext()

  • self.current_wikitext (do this in self.update_wikitext()

Available attributes you can use but not modify:

  • self.current_page, which is an mwclient Page, so you can access page.name, etc

  • self.site, a WikiClient object

Specify a summary on initialization along with either a page_list or a title_list.

  • page_list is a list of Page objects (for example maybe site.client.categories)

  • title_list is a list of strings which will be turned into Page objects

Create a PageModifier object, which can perform operations to edit the plaintext or wikitext of a page.

Parameters
  • site – a WikiClient to perform the edits on

  • page_list – a list of Page objects to operate on, do not use with title_list

  • title_list – a list of title strings to operate on, do not use with page_list

  • limit – stop after scanning this many pages

  • summary – edit summary

  • startat_page – skip to this page

  • quiet – don’t print any console output (set to True for cron processes)

  • lag – sleep this many seconds before saving

  • data – Extra keywords to save to the class for use in the update_wikitext/update_plaintext methods

current_page = None
current_text = None
current_wikitext = None
postprocess_plaintext(text)

This method may not be supported forever, do not use it!!!

It’s only here because TemplateModifier requires it due to mwparserfromhell’s node removal not completely removing newlines when removing nodes.

prioritize_plaintext = False
prioritize_wikitext = False
run()
update_plaintext(text)

This will be run iff update_plaintext isn’t overridden in a subclass.

Modify text and return it.

update_wikitext(wikitext)

This will be run iff update_wikitext isn’t overridden in a subclass.

Modify wikitext in place.

save(page: mwclient.page.Page, text, summary='', minor=False, bot=True, section=None, **kwargs)
