  • summary: update wikipdata's items one time! --> update wikipdata's item one time!
API doesn't let changing of an existing item at once
About creating it's possible

I done this edit by library and it supports one edition for adding many labels and langs in a item updating but it's item creation has bug so now I should use for create and for updating\!
it is difficult because has it's own user\ and settings :\)

In, I made createitem accept one more parameter which is a dictionary called 'value', and change variable params to

params = \{
'summary': self.\_encodeArg\(summary, 'summary'\),
'format': 'jsonfm',
'action': 'wbeditentity',
'data': re.sub\(ur"\bu\'", u'"', repr\(value\).decode\("unicode-escape"\)\).replace\("'", '"'\)\)

With this code, you can call
datapage.createitem\("Bot: import iw links", value=\{'labels': \{'en': \{'language': 'en', 'value': 'abc'\}, 'th': \{'language': 'th', 'value': 'bca'\}\}, 'sitelinks': \{'enwiki': \{'site': 'enwiki', 'title': 'abc'\}\}\}\)

thanks nu11zer0.
we should also change to accept more parameters for setitem\(\)

Pywikibot has two versions: Compat and Core. This task was filed about the older version, called Pywikibot-compat, which is not under active development anymore. Hence I'm lowering the priority of this task to reflect the reality. Unfortunately, the Pywikibot team does not have the manpower to retest every single bug report / feature request against the (maintained) Pywikibot code base. Furthermore, the code base of Pywikibot-Compat has changed a lot compared to the code base of Pywikibot-Core so there is a chance that the problem described in this task might not exist anymore. Please help: Unfortunately manpower is limited and does not allow testing every single reported task again. If you have time and interest in Pywikibot, please upgrade to Pywikibot-Core and add a comment to this task if the problem in this task still happens in Pywikibot-Core (or directly edit the task by removing the Pywikibot-compat project and adding the Pywikibot project to this task). To learn more about Pywikibot and to get involved in its development, please check out Thank you for your understanding.
