Git repository of Wikimedia has this file:

basic.py is a script of the Pywikibot framework. It is not a complete bot; rather, it is a template from which simple bots can be made. You can rename it to mybot.py, then edit it in whatever way you want.

Parameters[edit]

The following parameters are supported:

-debug
If given, doesn't do any real changes, but only shows what would have been changed.

All other parameters will be regarded as part of the title of a single page, and the bot will only work on that single page.

Example[edit]

python basic.py -debug User:MyUserName

This tries to add 'Text ' in front of the page User:MyUserName. Since the -debug option is given, the page wouldn't be changed.
