MediaWiki CSV Import is a web-based tool designed with MediaWiki sites owners and administrators in mind.

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 XML files are generated in MediaWiki's page import format. Once generated you can upload the XML file from the Special Pages:Import page of your wiki to generate pages in bulk. This is an easy way to prepopulate a Wiki with a large number of pages generated from structure data (CSV).
