Allow querying MediaWiki's Web API in Scribunto
Closed, DuplicatePublic


It would be awsome if Scribunto-based lua modules in wikipedia and other WMF projects could get content from Mediawiki API. It will give users the ability to integrate various data such as edit history, category content, any page content to any other page: various auxillary and support pages, lists, et al.

Thoough some performance issues are possible.
