I have been working on some additions to the pywikipediabot framework.
I'd be happy if my code could be useful to others.
sync.py helps synchronizing different wikis. It goes through a bunch
of namespaces and creates an overview of pages that are different,
this is already useful for Templates and MediaWiki but especially
useful when dealing with semantic mediawiki, where a lot of the
functionality lives in namespaces such as Property, Type and Form.
linkreports.py creates a page with a table of broken links, first
date, last date and error message.
I also wrote a little PHP frontend that lets people run a
pywikipediabot replace script (it's for folks who can't or don't want
to use anything on a commandline). This can probably live on its own
on github, but it might be a bit too custom at this point and I'd like
to have some comments on it.
This PHP frontend is available at https://github.com/guaka/phpfrontforpywikibot
It's pretty rough still but releasing it forces me to think about the
public release when adding more functionality.
I'm not sure how to proceed with getting sync.py and linkreports.py in
the official repo. Shall I just put them up on github so you can take
a look? I'm looking forward to your ideas.
