Wiki Tricks

Exploring use of mvs to download and upload entries from openwetware. The mediawiki client is easy to install as described in the link. Doesn’t seem to have a tool to grab everything in my Notebook namespace, but with a little bash script I can grab all the entries in a particular notebook:

~~ {.de1} #! /bin/bash mvs login -d openwetware.org -u Carl_Boettiger -w index.php   for j in seq 3 5; { for i in seq 1 9; do mvs update User:Carl_Boettiger/Notebook/Comparative_Phylogenetics/2010/0\(j/0\)i.wiki done   for i in seq 10 31; do mvs update User:Carl_Boettiger/Notebook/Comparative_Phylogenetics/2010/0\(j/\)i.wiki done } ~~

  • login should specify -p password (omitted here for obvious reasons)
  • For some reason can’t get commit to push changes back up. (See the link above for examples on how to commit data).


 Doing commit User:Carl_Boettiger.wiki with host: openwetware.org and lang: en
 Can't call method "isa" without a package or object reference at /usr/bin/mvs line 96.

- Also looking into a personal copy of OWW: OpenWetWare:Software/Subwikis, which would similarly allow offline work.
