2 Questions and discussion[edit]

Is it possible to 'round trip' a selection of wiki pages using mwlib? I.e. can I go from Mediawiki text to Parse Tree, and then back to mediawiki text?

I guess the Parse Tree format is documented somewhere, but I couldn't find it. (I've been looking at the the wiki pages, and the short example on http://code.pediapress.com/wiki/wiki/mwlib.)

Would it be easy to go from the Parse Tree to xml, and then back to mediawiki text? (This might be obvious for a python programmer.)

Answer from Volker (april 2009):

currently it is not possible to convert the parse tree back to mediawiki markup. To achieve this, a mediawiki writer had to be written. Probably this is not too hard but notheless tedious and a couple of details will be tricky. If you are interested in learning Python this might be a good exercise ;)
