Port to Pywikibot core
Closed, ResolvedPublic


PyWikibot [1] is a Python-based framework to write bots for MediaWiki. There are currently 2 versions of pywikibot currently used:

  • version 1.0 (also known as pywikibot-compat) is the legacy version
  • version 2.0 (also known as pywikibot-core) is a rewrite of the original framework, focusing solely on MediaWiki wikis with an API (version 1.14 or newer) and offering an improved internal architecture.

There are a number of scripts used by various robot operators that were used in pywikibot-compat but have not yet been adapted to work with pywikibot-core. One of those is, which allows you to delete files that are also present on Wikimedia Commons on a local wiki.

You can find information about how to convert the script on [2], [3]. Patches can be submited through the gerrit uploader [4] (you need a account). More documentation on gerrit can be found at [5].
