    Build Status dependency status dev dependency status

    A mediawiki article spider tool.

    This tool grabs all the dependencies for a given set of articles and creates a directory or zip file. The format is documented at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/PDF_rendering/Bundle_format

    Installation

    Node version 0.8 and 0.10 are tested to work.

    Install the node package depdendencies with:

    npm install
    

    Install other system dependencies.

    apt-get install zip
    

    Running

    To generate a bundle for the en.wikipedia.org article United States:

    bin/mw-ocg-bundler -v -o bundle.zip -h en.wikipedia.org "United States"
    

    To generate a bundle for a collection of articles about the inner planets:

    bin/mw-ocg-bundler -v -o bundle.zip -h en.wikipedia.org --title Planets Mercury Venus Earth Mars
    

    If you have a book specification (in the form of metabook.json and nfo.json files), use:

    bin/mw-ocg-bundler -v -o bundle.zip -m metabook.json -n nfo.json
    

    For non-interactive use feel free to remove the -v flag.

    For other options, see:

    bin/mw-ocg-bundler --help
    

    There are several rendering backends which take bundles in this format as inputs. See mw-ocg-latexer, for instance, which generates PDFs of mediawiki articles via XeLaTeX, and mw-ocg-texter which generates plaintext versions of mediawiki articles.
