#8661Edit

Hi, Xqt. Please take a look at my comment on Special:Code/pywikipedia/8661#code-comments. Best regards, Malafaya 12:09, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Done by Multichil. Thanks, Malafaya 12:19, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

archivebot.py — Does it works for "es"-projects?Edit

Hello Xqt. May I know if the archivebot.py script works for Spanish-language projects? In the past it didn't due to timestamp-related things IIRC. If it isn't yet supported, I can pass you the required changes if needed so you can push them to the pywiki scripts (if you like, of course). Thank you, --Marco Aurelio (talkmeta) 19:58, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

I've never tried it. If you have a patch for currently used timestamps, that would be great. Xqt (talk) 05:34, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
I did tested it yesterday and it gives me an error message telling me that the spanish language is not currently supported. I can submit the required changes but I need to know which needs to be translated or addapted. Regards. --Marco Aurelio (talkmeta) 14:07, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Could you give us the error messages and traceback at sourceforge. I cannot follow. Xqt (talk) 16:50, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

BugEdit

Your edit -- http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/pywikipedia/trunk/pywikipedia/category_redirect.py?r1=9692&r2=10485 seems making it not working when I edit Wikimedia Commons. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 11:38, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, this is an inapropriate bug report. Please give us more information about this issue, e.g. the traceback, your command line and the output of version.py. Btw you may use our bug tracker at sourceforge to report these details. Xqt (talk) 05:05, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

WarteschlangeEdit

Hallo xqt. Bei der Pywikipedia-Version, die ich 2012 oder 2013 auf meinem alten PC installiert hatte, gab es eine Warteschlange von 60(?) halbautomatischen Edits, die gefüllt werden konnte. Bei der gestern installierten Version (Core) scheint dies nicht der Fall zu sein, so dass ich schon noch wenigen Edits waren musste, bis diese ausgeführt wurden, um die nächste Änderungsvorschau angezeigt zu erhalten. Kann man dies irgendwo ändern? Im Manual habe ich nichts dazu gefunden. --Leyo 00:03, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Leyo, welches Script? solve-disambiguation.py?  @xqt 04:05, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Ich hab' mir obiges Script mal angeschaut und nichts auffälliges gefunden. Es warden bis zu 64 Seiten gesammelt und asynchrony bearbeitet. Kanst Du mal in den Chat #pywikibot connect oder #wikipedia-de-admins connect kommen, damit wir das mal durchgehen. Vielleicht ist ja doch noch irgenwo der Wurm drin.  @xqt 04:50, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Nein, replace.py. Du scheinst gerade nicht im Chat zu sein. --Leyo 19:26, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
ja, seit halb acht war ich offline. Kannst ja per Gelegenheit nochmal probieren, bin eigentlich häufig anzutreffen. Aber egal: Ich schau mir morgen das Script mal an und geb' Dir Bescheid. Aus dem Stand weiß ich's nicht.  @xqt 20:52, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Also ich habe das Script mal geprüft, demnach sollte es so funktionieren, wie Du es erwartest. Wir müssten das mal an einem Beispiel durchspielen.  @xqt 10:41, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Login PywikipediaEdit

Hallo Xqt,

seit kurzem kann ich mich mit login.py nicht mehr einloggen. Wenn ich login.py unter chdir \pywikipedia (wo ich pywikipedia gespeichert habe) einfüge, kommt nicht einmal eine Fehlermeldung, sondern chdir \pywikipedia wird einfach wiederholt.

Was mache ich falsch?

Gruß, --Holder (talk) 14:17, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Hallo @Holder: , ich verstehe nicht genau, was Du meinst; Du fügst ein Script ein? Mit welcher Version arbeitest Du den, compat oder core? und was kommt heraus, wenn Du version.py ausführst? Kannst Du mal in den Chat kommen. Ich bin da oft. Ansonsten sind da jayvdb und xzise häufig, die gerne helfen. Gruß  @xqt 19:00, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
Chat, hm, muss mal schauen, ob ich dazu komme.
Wenn ich version.py eingeben kommt folgendes:
Pywikipedia [http] trunk/pywikipedia (r10875, 2013/01/05, 22:45:20)
Python 2.7.3 (default, Apr 10 2012, 23:31:26) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]

use_api_login = True
unicode test: ok
Vermutlich alles völlig veraltet, oder?
Gruß, --Holder (talk) 17:41, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Ja sehr. Diese Version kann seit spätesten letzter Woche gar nicht mehr laufen weil sich die API geändert hat. Ich kann da nur raten, den Bot zu aktualisieren und am besten zu core-Version zu wechseln. Die alte compat-Version wird von den Entwicklern nicht mehr unterstützt, läuft aber noch. Grüße  @xqt 21:29, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Danke, werde ich versuchen, aber vor den Sommerferien wird das nichts mehr. Melde mich evtl. danach wieder. Viele Grüße, --Holder (talk) 20:26, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

pywikibot/bots/xqbot testsEdit

Hi !

I was looking at layout.yaml and saw

  - name: pywikibot/bots/xqbot
    template:
      - name: tox-jessie

but I fail to understand where the tests it runs are actually defined. I guess it will run tox but ... how does it go from the stanza in layout.yaml to running the tox command ? I'm asking because I'd like to prepare tests for a bot I'm writing and would like to follow your example.

Thanks ! Dachary (talk) 08:22, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

welcome.py: problem for zhEdit

Hi Xqt, I wanted to run this script on srwiki. When I wanted to run, I got:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Script worked normal before my patch, but I no touched parameters for zhwiki in patch. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 16:19, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
Probably you are using an older patchset e.g. this one. I cannot reproduce that failure and the syntax checking is ok:
>>> import pwb, pywikibot as py
>>> from scripts import welcome
>>> 
You should update your bot.  @xqt 12:56, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! I downloaded pywikbot from gerrit with git clone and it resolved a problem. Thank you! Zoranzoki21 (talk) 13:28, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Please review with +2 patch againEdit

HI, can you again add +2 on patch https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/383932/? I removed your vote because change is not deployed. You can see in comment. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 13:04, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Non-JSON responseEdit

Hi Xqt. Your observation about the put_throttle is right (infact I asked how it could solve the problem), but the script always locks up after 10-15 minutes of work. I have limited experience as a programmer, but that thing sounds like a bug. Any other script runned on bot with more substation works normally. Something is not working well. Bye, --.avgas 07:48, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

I've runned that script in -simulate mode for more than 1 hour without any problems. Looks like an connection problem on your side. The fact is that the received data from server is malformed. For futher exploring the complete log would be helpful. Also run that script in -verbose mode to get additional outputs. The logfile will increase a lot.  @xqt 09:16, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
I runned that script for six hours without any problems.  @xqt 13:53, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Inactive bot accountEdit

Hi. At Project:Requests/User rights/Removal of inactive bot rights (2) there is a proposal to remove the bot rights of inactive bots. Since you appear to be the operator of one of the bots in question, I wanted to draw your attention to the discussion. Please let us know if the rights are still needed (or if they aren't). Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:47, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

I think I don't need them currently.  @xqt 11:26, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
@Xqt: In that case, would you like me to remove the bot flag from User:Xqbot? DannyS712 (talk) 20:40, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

HelpEdit

Hey there, Xqt! :)

I wanted to ask you 2 things. First of all, has the change about summary been deployed yet? I got a lot of emails from the tests but wasn't able to follow them all and I thought I'd take the shortcut by asking here.

Secondly, can you help me with a weird problem I've been having while accessing the REST API with my bot? (Not related to pywikibot per se.) I've created a while loop to send some POST and GET requests in a row with curl in a certain wiki page. The bizarre part is that I get this pattern: 2 iterations of the loop go well and in the 3rd one I get an edit conflict, even though no one is editing that page other than me (other than my bot, better said). And this repeats until the end of the loop. In the end, 1/3 of the total requests hasn't gone through because of having faced "edit conflicts" (HTTP CODE 409). I believe it is related to the id revision parameter. It somehow gets confused and tries to edit an old version and that brings the edit conflict but I can't solve it even if I make the requests go through very slow (1 every 10 minutes, for example), the pattern is always there. The only way for the pattern to change is to make it send the requests without any kind of sleep in between, in which case more than 3/4 of the requests start facing edit conflicts, so it gets worse, 1/3 is the best I can do. Do you have any idea what might be happening given your technical knowledge? What might be sending HTTP 409 codes when in reality there is not really an edit conflict happening? I can provide more information if needed. - Klein Muçi (talk) 11:20, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

During these days, I've tried the summary change many times but nothing happens. Maybe I'm applying it wrong? What I do is, at my user-fixes.py, put this: 'msg': {'_default':'Example text: Lorem ipsum bla bla bla%(description)s',} but I only get the literal string as written for a summary. What am I doing wrong? - Klein Muçi (talk) 02:07, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Sorry for this late response. The change for the summary message was deployed with release 6.0.0 for weeks ago. Please verify your Pywikibot version.
The second point: HTTP CODE 409 is not an edit conflict but a request conflict:
>>> from http import HTTPStatus
>>> HTTPStatus(409).description
'Request conflict'
This indicates a conflict with the current state of the target resource but I cannot say what this really means. Because this is a server response I guess this has nothing to do with pywikibot. Probably adding a get throttle or increasing put_throttle would help. Look at config2.py for those settings.
Best  @xqt 09:04, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer! :)) I think you mean user-config.py, no? There put_throttle is equal to 10. Should I increase it more? I thought the default (10 seconds) was good enough. - Klein Muçi (talk) 11:38, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
The documentation for the settings are in config2.py. The idea for increasing the put throttle is that the server (target resouce) needs some additional time. But this is not sure bu you can try it whether it helps. You may just add an additional option to your command line e.g. -pt:30 and increase the put throttle to 30 seconds. You also may use -minthrottle:5 fro example which slows down read requests from server to 5 seconds. Play with these parameter, probably it helps. Otherwise you have to contact the target resource provider about that http status. Best  @xqt 12:10, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay then. I'll try playing around with those. Thank you! As for contacting the target resource provider... My bot is active on the Albanian Wikipedia and Wikiquote (I'm an admin on those sites). Do you have any idea where who can I contact in these cases? I may need some guidance in regard to accessing the Wikipedia's API in general anyway so... Just for future reference. - Klein Muçi (talk) 12:48, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
I've not glue. Probably wikitech. I am not familar with REST API and Pywikibot does only support the http interface yet (maybe you can contribute some code ;)  @xqt 13:17, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Hey there! I played around with those values and even the API retry number values. It doesn't seem to make any difference. The pattern is always there and always the same: 2 requests go through, 1 doesn't. I get this message: {"messageTranslations":{"sq":"Konflikt në redaktim.","en":"Edit conflict."},"httpCode":409,"httpReason":"Conflict"} Does it tell you anything? - Klein Muçi (talk) 09:26, 14 April 2021 (UTC)

Today I had some free time and I looked at the verbose mode out of curiosity to compare the requests when they got through and when they didn't.
This is when the request goes through and this is when it doesn't. The cache part looks the most interesting part even though I don't know what it means. (Also some minor changes like cookies, etc.) Please take a look at them whenever you have some free time. Maybe you understand more than I do.
As always the pattern is always 2 go, 1 doesn't.
Also, please take a look here. According to the instructions on that page, error 409 is sent on edit conflict cases. There are no edits happening in that page apart from those that my bot is doing so that leaves the problem to be related with the revision ID. In the way I've set up the script, the latest revision ID is taken automatically by a variable but still gives problems 1/3 of the time. Maybe it's a problem related to caching somehow? - Klein Muçi (talk) 09:06, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

T267742Edit

Hi, Xqt. Hope that you are doing well. I don't want to take much of your time but I would like to draw your attention to this comment. My understanding is that this bug can be resolved quickly, so, can you resolve it for me? Thank you and best wishes for you always. --Meno25 (talk) 15:24, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi Meno25, I am sorry I tried to find a more general solution for such an exception. Now I've implemented one for this script only. The problem is the lazy parsing of title but any earlier status has deeper impacts. Unfortunately I found a big problem with the implementiation of output cache from compat. It always fails on tests if the testing CPU is highly used phab:T282962 but I haven't found problems for a normal run. Please have a look on it if something looks courious with pywikibot.output and other logger. I think I'll revert it for 6.2 and postpone that to 6.3. Thanks a lot.  @xqt 20:12, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Pywikibot, Script "category" und AnführungszeichenEdit

Tach, Xqt, nachdem letztens das Problem bei mir lag, frage ich jetzt lieber erstmal: Kann es sein, dass das Skript „category“ nicht mit Anführungszeichen umgehen kann? Mir fiel das im Barwiki auf, aber nicht nur dort gibt es Kategorien mit Doppelpunkten im Namen.

  • pwb category remove -simulate -family:wikipedia -lang:bar -user:SperaviriBot -log:syntaxtest.log -namespace:108 -from:Spruch:Person führte nicht unerwartet zur Fehlermeldung
CRITICAL Exiting due to uncaught exception <class 'ValueError'>
  • […] "-from:Spruch:Person" führte ebenso erwartet zur selben Fehlermeldung. In der commands.log sind die Befehlsaufrufe auch identisch.

Nun aber zu den unerwarteten Ergebnissen:

  • […] "-from:'Spruch:Person'" ergibt
WARNING Moving category page 'Kategorie:'Spruch:Person'' requested, but the page doesn't exist.
  • […] "-from:\"Spruch:Person\"" führt zu
WARNING Moving category page 'Kategorie:"Spruch:Person"' requested, but the page doesn't exist.

Die Kat. ist sehr wohl existent: bar:Kategorie:Spruch:Person.

Eine Anführung um den Parameter wie im zweiten Beispiel, um Leerzeichen in Kategorien abzufangen, stellt dagegen kein Problem dar. — Speravir (talk– 23:08, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

zu -from:Spruch:Person: Spruch:Person ist aber keine Kategorie oder wird nicht als solche erkannt wegen des Namensraum-Präfixes. -from:Category:Spruch:Person sollte dagegen funktionieren.  @xqt 11:37, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
Ja, funktioniert, und zwar auch mit der lokalisierten Bezeichnung (also hier „Kategorie“). Ich denke, darauf sollte in der Doku hingewiesen werden. Sowas wie “In options -from: and -to: for categories containing a colon you must explicitly prepend category: or the localized equivalent” sollte stimmen, oder? — Speravir (talk– 23:45, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
Ich denke ja. Möchtest Du das machen mit der Doku?  @xqt 15:18, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
Upps, vergessen zu antworten: Hier im MediwIki in Manual:Pywikibot könnte ich das sicherlich, in doc: pywikibot anscheinend eher nicht. Offensichtlich ist es ja sogar so, dass man immer das Kategorie-Präfix angeben kann (aufgefallen, als ich unten folgende Warnung zu umgehen versuchte), man das vielleicht eher so umformulieren sollte, dass man es in den Fällen, wo die Kategorie keinen Doppelpunkt enthält, weglassen kann – oder man verlangt explizit das Präfix und verschweigt die Verkürzungsmöglichkeit, lässt sie aber von Entwicklerseite weiterhin stillschweigend zu. Mir fehlt aber auch die Übersicht, ob dazu auch andere Skripte, die sich den Kategorien widmen, ebenso zu berücksichtigen wären. — Speravir (talk– 23:30, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Anderes Problem oder Problemchen, bewusst erst heute aufgetreten, obwohl ich nun seit einer Weile im barwiki die leeren Kategorien abarbeite:

WARNING: .\scripts\category.py:276: FamilyMaintenanceWarning: Site wikipedia:bar has no language defined in doc_subpages dict in wikipedia_family.py file                                                                                 
  docs = page.site.doc_subpage  # return tuple

Wenn die Meldung bei jeder Bearbeitung aufgetreten wäre, hätte ich sie viel früher bemerkt. — Speravir (talk– 23:30, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Was meinst Du denn genau? Die /doc-Seite wird ja nur bei Vorlagen benutzt, also nur bei deren Kategorisierung abgefragt. doc_subpages sind im wikipedia_family.py hinterlegt, könnte auch veraltet sein. Was wäre Dein Vorschlag hierzu?  @xqt 15:07, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
Aha, tatsächlich ist hier eine Vorlage betroffen. Mir war nicht klar, dass die Fehlermeldung sich darauf bezieht. Die Vorlage hat gar kein Doc-Unterseite, siehe bar:Vorlog:Info ISO-3166-2:BE (die inexistente Kat. wird über bar:Vorlog:Info ISO-3166-2/Info eingefügt, das kann nicht per Bot korrigiert werden). — Speravir (talk– 21:14, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
Sieh dir bitte mal kurz meine Änderung Special:Diff/4587354/4777461 an. Wenn Du die für in Ordnung hältst, kann man sie dann für Übersetzungen freigeben. Wie gesagt, in doc: pywikibot kann ich aber keine solche Änderung einfügen. — Speravir (talk– 18:32, 24 August 2021 (UTC)

Deprecated-Warnung für logfilecountEdit

Ich vermute, da fehlt etwas an geänderter Dokumentation: Ich erhielt diese Warnung:

_deprecate.py:487: ArgumentDeprecationWarning: config.logfilecount with value -1 is deprecated since release 6.5.0; use any positive number instead.

In der user-config.py steht aber etwas anderes und so wollte ich mich auf die Suche machen, den aktualisierten Text einzufügen. OK, ich hab dann selbst doc: pywikibot.config module gefunden (und das ist in der user-config zu Beginn verlinkt, vielleicht aber nicht in alten Configs?) – Edit: und auch dort steht es noch mit „if logfilecount is -1“ –, nur vorher suchte ich in Manual:Pywikibot bzw. von dort aus in Manual:Pywikibot/Installation (respektive der dt. Übersetzung) – und dort wird auf die nicht mehr existente Datei config2.py verwiesen. Es existiert zwar eine config.py, aber wäre es nicht sinnvoll, auch im Manual auf das pywikibot.config module in den Docs zu verweisen?

Davon völlig unabhängig etwas, das ich schon längst mal anfragen wollte, aber bis eben immer wieder vergessen habe, als es mir wegen der Suche nach einem möglichen Update wieder einfiel: In der core_stable.zip hinkt die Datei HISTORY.rst immer um eine Version zurück (aktuell: V.6.5.0, jüngste Version in der History-Datei: V.6.4.0). Kann man das nicht stattdessen so lösen, dass auch die Änderungen der aktuellen Version dort nachzulesen sind? — Speravir (talk– 20:21, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
