Effective 12/15/2018, the website is no longer available.

One of the more popular tools on was mwcsvimport, described as….

The tool builds MediaWiki XML Import files from CSV formatted data and an associated template file. The template file can contain wiki markup and variables that represent each column in the csv file such as {$Name}, {$Price}.

The original source code for was developed using an early version of the CakePHP framework which has since been deprecated.  With the recent deprecation of php 5.x I have decided to go ahead and shutdown the web app indefinitely.

Below I have extracted the code class that performed the csv dataset and template merge to mediawiki xml import file.  This code is NOT functional as a standalone script!  This code is provided as-is, only for reference.
