AutoWikiBrowser, sometimes abbreviated to AWB, is a semi-automated MediaWiki editor for MicrosoftWindows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (AWB also functions reasonably well under Wine on Linux but this is not officially supported) designed to make tedious repetitive tasks quicker and easier. It is essentially a browser that automatically opens up a new page when the last is saved. When set to do so, it suggests some changes (typically formatting) that are generally meant to be incidental to the main change.

At present, AutoWikiBrowser can create a list of pages from single or multiple categories, "what links here", the wiki links on a page, a text file, a Google search, a user's watchlist, or a user's contributions.

AWB also comes with an integrated program to scan Wikipedia database dumps. the edit box of AutoWikiBrowser supports the Microsoft Text Services Framework for use with speech recognition/handwriting applications.

HowTo / Notes


For latest information see:

Due to bug 21798 in gdiplus, adding gdiplus to your winetricks line is needed as a current workaround. Adding ie6 may help as well, so
winetricks gdiplus ie6 dotnet20
should help before running AWB See and particularly note the warnings at the top of that page.
