  • Retrieve a list of articles with disambiguation links from dplbot.toolforge.org.
  • Edit Wikipedia articles directly within the app.
  • Automatically generate edit summaries for your changes.
  • OAuth integration for secure Wikipedia authentication.

Before you can run this application, ensure you have the following prerequisites installed:

  • Python 3.x
  • Flask
  • SQLAlchemy
  • lxml
  • Jinja2
  • requests
  • requests-oauthlib

You'll also need to obtain OAuth credentials from Wikipedia to use the authentication features.
