// Log in to a wiki
$api = new \Mediawiki\Api\MediawikiApi( 'http://localhost/w/api.php' );
$api->login( new \Mediawiki\Api\ApiUser( 'username', 'password' ) );
$services = new \Mediawiki\Api\MediawikiFactory( $api );

// Get a page
$page = $services->newPageGetter()->getFromTitle( 'Foo' );

// Edit a page
$content = new \Mediawiki\DataModel\Content( 'New Text' );
$revision = new \Mediawiki\DataModel\Revision( $content, $page->getPageIdentifier() );
$services->newRevisionSaver()->save( $revision );

// Move a page
	$services->newPageGetter()->getFromTitle( 'FooBar' ),
	new Title( 'FooBar' )

// Delete a page
	$services->newPageGetter()->getFromTitle( 'DeleteMe!' ),
	array( 'reason' => 'Reason for Deletion' )

// Create a new page
$newContent = new \Mediawiki\DataModel\Content( 'Hello World' );
$title = new \Mediawiki\DataModel\Title( 'New Page' );
$identifier = new \Mediawiki\DataModel\PageIdentifier( $title );
$revision = new \Mediawiki\DataModel\Revision( $newContent, $identifier );
$services->newRevisionSaver()->save( $revision );

// List all pages in a category
$pages = $services->newPageListGetter()->getPageListFromCategoryName( 'Category:Cat name' );

Running the integration tests

To run the integration tests, you need to have a running MediaWiki instance. The tests will create pages and categories without using a user account so it's best if you use a test instance. Furthermore you need to turn off rate limiting by adding the line

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['noratelimit'] = true;

to the LocalSettings.php of your MediaWiki.

By default, the tests will use the URL http://localhost/w/api.php as the API endpoint. If you have a different URL (e.g. http://localhost:8080/w/api.php), you need to configure the URL as an environemnt variable before running the tests. Example:

export MEDIAWIKI_API_URL='http://localhost:8080/w/api.php'

Warning: Running the integration tests can take a long time to complete.
