WikipediaFS is a mountable Linux virtual file system that allows to read and edit articles from Wikipedia (or any Mediawiki-based site) as if they were real files. It is thus possible to view and edit articles using your favourite text-editor. Text-editors tend to be more convenient than a simple browser form when it comes to editing large texts and they generally include useful features such as Mediawiki syntax highlighting and spell checking. Open your article, perform your modifications and save ! That's it, Wikipedia has been updated for you! Advance usage of WikipediaFS includes easy development of scripts and bots. Programs simply have to deal with normal files because this is WikipediaFS which takes care of the HTTP layer. For example, it would be possible to use WikipediaFS to perform a massive content migration from an existing site to a Mediawiki.
