StatMediaWiki is a project that creates tools to collect and aggregate information available in a MediaWiki installation. StatMediaWiki is free software under the GPL v3 or higher license. There are currently two versions of this software: Classic (stable software) and Interactive (currently under heavy development).

StatMediaWiki Classic[edit]

In StatMediaWiki Classic, results are static HTML pages including tables and graphics that can help to analyze the wiki status and development. Some functionalities in StatMediaWiki are adapted from those in StatSVN. Due to the output is static (a set of files sorted in directories), Classic is focused in small wikis and communities.

It has a command-line interface. It eases its automatic invocation and publication of it results in a web server (for example, these demos).

Installation and use[edit]

StatMediaWiki is platform-independent software, it is known to work in GNU/Linux and Windows.

GNU/Linux[edit]

  1. Reach or import the wiki you want to analyse.
  2. Install dependencies, e.g. on Ubunut/Debian $ sudo apt-get install python python-gnuplot python-mysqldb subversion .
  3. Fetch the package: $ svn checkout https://forja.rediris.es/svn/statmediawiki .
  4. Write your ~/.my.cnf and run smw.py appropriately, see [1].

If the script crashes with KeyError: 100 or similar, run the deleteOrphanedRevisions.php script found in the maintenance directory of your MediaWiki core checkout.[2]
