WikiGateway is a library of functions which allows you to act as a client to a wiki website, executing operations like getPage, putPage, and getRecentChanges. WikiGateway translates your requests into the idiosyncratic HTML form interfaces of various popular wiki servers. Basically, it does Wiki I/O and import/export.
It can be used either as a Perl module or as a web service providing XmlRpcToWiki.
Currently it only works with UseMod and MoinMoin, but contributions to make it work with other wikis are welcome.
See [InterWikiSoftware:WikiGatewayMotivation] for motivation, and [InterWikiSoftware:WikiGatewayGeneralDiscussion] for discussion, including security implications.

partially supports Atom. That is, it allows a third party to set up a gateway server which effectively allows users to read and modify a wiki via the Atom protocol. All without touching the code of the WikiEngine
or even having access to its server.
See [InterWikiSoftware:AtomGateway] for details. See [AtomWiki:AtomWikiGateway] for a demo.
Command-line wiki client
There is a command-line frontend to WikiGateway
in progress. Actually, it seems to work, but unit tests and documentation haven't been written yet.
wikiclient --type=usemod1 read MeatBall:SandBox
wikiclient --type=usemod1 read http://meatballwiki.org/wiki:SandBox
wikiclient --type=usemod1 write http://interwiki.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl:SandBox
wikiclient --type=usemod1 rc MeatBall
wikiclient --type=usemod1 allpages http://interwiki.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl
Information to be read/written is read from STDIN/printed to STDOUT. Note that InterMap monikers can be used as shortcuts for URLs. An optional UseMod style InterMap file is needed for this.
