From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

WikiProxy [1] is a tool written by Duesentrieb for interface for fetching full article text (all revisions). This is intended for use by other tools.. See User:Duesentrieb/Tools for other tools I wrote.

Please use the talk page for questions and comments. If I do not respond, please leave a quick note on my talk page at the german wikipedia.

WikiProxy gives Toolserver tools a fast way to access the full text of pages - just like action=raw, but much faster than querying the main cluster.

WikiProxy uses the copies of article text that are available on the toolserver cluster, on clematis. It supports all wikis in (more or less) real time.


  • Access to WikiProxy is limited to clients running on the toolserver. For access from the outside, a token is required. Please contact me if you need one.
