NAME ^

MediaWiki::Bot::Shell - a shell interface to your MediaWiki::Bot

SYNOPSIS ^

    use MediaWiki::Bot::Shell;

    my $shell = MediaWiki::Bot::Shell->new();
    $shell->cmdloop();

DESCRIPTION ^

This provides a shell interface to your MediaWiki::Bot. By initializing one or more MediaWiki::Bot objects and using them for the duration of your shell session, initialization costs are amortized.

Configuration data is read from ~/.perlwikibot-shell.rc, or prompted for at startup.

You should probably run pwb, which is included with this module, to enter your shell.

OPTIONS ^

Options are passed to the constructor as a hashref. Options are currently:

debug

Like it says on the tin. Setting debug provides debug output from this module, as well as from the underlying MediaWiki::Bot object(s).

norc

Don't read options from ~/.perlwikibot-shell.rc. This will result in the user being prompted for username, password etc.

COMMANDS ^

delete

This will delete a page on the wiki you're currently using:

    delete "Main Page" "for teh lulz"

To delete a page on another wiki, use [[w:fr:Page Title]]:

    delete "[[w:fr:Page Title]]" "pour les lulz"

Make sure you quote your input correctly.

set_wiki

Switch wikis:

    set_wiki meta.wikimedia.org
    set_wiki secure.wikimedia.org wikipedia/meta/w

debug

Turn debugging on or off

    debug on
    debug off

read

Read the wikitext of the given page. Remember to quote the page title correctly:

    read "Main Page"

kill

Lock a cross-wiki vandal's account:

    kill "Some stupid vandal"

nuke

The nuclear option: globally lock and hide an account:

    nuke "Mike.lifeguard lives at 123 Main St."

globalblock

Apply a global block to an IP or CIDR range:

    globalblock 127.0.0.1 --expiry "31 hours"
    globalblock 192.168.0.1 --no-anon-only

Options:

--block, --no-block

Whether to block or unblock the target. Default is to block. When unblocking, all settings except --reason are ignored.

--anon-only, --ao
--no-anon-only, --no-ao

Whether to block only anonymous users, or all users. Default is to hardblock (no-anon-only).

--reason, --summary

Sets the block reason.

--expiry, --length

Sets the block expiry.

rollback

Finds all top edits by the specified user and rolls them back using mark-as-bot.

    rollback "Fugly vandal"
--force

Override the 10-query limit. Use this when reverting mass vandals which have done hundreds of edits. The limit is intended to guard against accidentally rolling back edits of an established user.

Note that this does not (currently) revert page moves, nor delete page creations.

SEE ALSO ^

pwb, MediaWiki::Bot and the admin plugin.

BUGS ^

Yes. This is a proof-of-concept, and there are several issues with both MediaWiki::Bot::Plugin::Steward and this module. It should be considered pre-alpha. I'm releasing the code so others can find and fix them, in the hope that it will be useful for others.

Please do not report bugs to me without a patch. I have no plans to work on this further.
