Interfacing with the MediaWiki API

Latest on Hackage:0.2.6

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

= mediawiki - Accessing MediaWiki from Haskell =

'mediawiki' is a Haskell package providing a comprehensive binding to
the programmatic interface to MediaWiki (aka, 'the MediaWiki API') -

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API

The binding is allegedly complete (2008-11-17), letting you write
applications in Haskell that accesses and (if enabled by target Wiki)
manipulate content on MediaWiki pages.

= Getting started =

For some code samples showing you how to get started using this
API binding, have a look in the examples/ directory.

= Building and installing =

This package is provided in Cabal form, so only thing you need to
do to get going is:

foo% runghc Setup configure
foo% runghc Setup build
foo% runghc Setup install

The package depends on a bunch of other packages though, so you
need to have them built&installed, as well. They are:

* HTTP: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/HTTP
* xml: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/xml
* mime: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/mime
* utf8-string: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/utf8-string
