pwb.py is a wrapper script to use Pywikibot in a 'directory' mode.

UsageEdit

Run scripts using:

$ python pwb.py <pwb options> <name_of_script> <options>

and it will use the package directory to store all user files, fix up search paths so the package does not need to be installed, etc.

Currently <pwb options> are global options. This can be used for tests to set the default site like (see T216825):

$ python pwb.py -lang:de bot_tests -v
