mwclient is a lightweight Python client library to the
[MediaWiki API](https://mediawiki.org/wiki/API)
which provides access to most API functionality.
It works with Python 2.7 as well as 3.5 and above,
and supports MediaWiki 1.16 and above.
For functions not available in the current MediaWiki,
a `MediaWikiVersionError` is raised.

The current stable
[version 0.10.1](https://github.com/mwclient/mwclient/archive/v0.10.1.zip)
is [available through PyPI](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/mwclient):

```
$ pip install mwclient
```

The current [development version](https://github.com/mwclient/mwclient)
can be installed from GitHub:

```
$ pip install git+git://github.com/mwclient/mwclient.git
```

Please see the [changelog
document](https://github.com/mwclient/mwclient/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md)
for a list of changes.
