When I started coding against API a few months ago it
seemed to be a
lot less complete than it is now.
Sometimes documentation has been added ahead of availability of the function.
Is there a current list of available features?
The API entry point on http://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php
I am particularly interested in list=search,
action=login and (most of
all) editing via the API.
Search doesn't work with the lucene backend that wikimedia uses. Login
works for me.
Currently my code is editing via html forms and
scraping the result,
which is less than ideal.
Last time I tried API login it returned a cookie which was rejected by
the site when I tried to use it for editing, so I still use the screen
scraping technique for login.
I already use it
