git-remote-mediawiki is a tool that lets you:

  • Read the text of a MediaWiki instance offline, including all history.
  • Modify a wiki super-fast through local edits, and then use the push command to synchronize.
  • Delete pages and remove spam without having to dishearteningly see the spam on your live wiki.

It might be for you if:

  • Your wiki is not enormous (at the moment, it scales poorly when a wiki has >1000 pages) or you want to edit only a small set of pages or categories.
  • You like the idea of seeing all the pages in your wiki as files on your computer.
  • You are interested in/willing to use command-line tools to interact with your wiki
  • It's especially fun if you are a big git addict.
