Download Pywikibot with SVN[edit]

If you don't want to use Git you can still use SVN.

Windows users may use the GUI extension TortoiseSVN, see next section below.

For installing with SVN you should run

svn co https://github.com/wikimedia/pywikibot/tags/stable
cd stable/scripts
svn co https://github.com/wikimedia/pywikibot-i18n/trunk i18n

Download Pywikibot with TortoiseSVN for Windows user[edit]

TortoiseSVN is a Windows shell extension with GUI working as SVN client. You may download the current release at: https://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html

If you like using TortoiseSVN you may use it as follows:

  1. Right-click on your preferred directory and execute "SVN Checkout..."
  2. Choose "URL of repository" and paste the URL https://github.com/wikimedia/pywikibot/tags/stable
  3. Choose "Checkout directory and change the default directory which is <your preferred directory>/pywikibot e.g. to <your preferred directory>/svn-core if you like.
  4. Confirm with [ OK ]
Now we have to install external libraries used by the framework. There are different ways to do that e.g. again with the checkout command. Another way is using properties. You may set it manually but it is very easy to use the preference file named .svnprops coming with the framework which sets all the needed properties:
  1. Right-click your working directory
  2. Select the last item in the drop list which might be folder's "Properties"
  3. Select "Subversion" tab and click on [ Properties... ] button
  4. click [ Import... ] and select the file ".svnprops" in your framework folder
  5. Confirm with [ OK ] for property settings
  6. Confirm with [ OK ] for folder properties
  7. Now right-click onto your working copy and select "SVN update" to download the external libraries.
