standardize_interwiki.py is a Pywikibot script used to loop over all pages in the home wiki, standardizing the interwiki links by moving the interwiki links on top of the articles.

It is recommended to check whether this kind of bot is accepted on your wiki. This bot should not be used if you are not sure what you are doing. You should run this bot under strict supervision because when it is launched, it will parse all articles starting from the one you specified and will not stop:

$ python pwb.py standardize_interwiki -start "plane"

Paramaters:

ParameterDescription
-start: Set from what page you want to start.

For example, entering "plane", will start at "plane" and then move to the next article starting with "pl", etc.

This may flood the edits.

Global arguments available

These options will override the configuration in user-config.py settings.
