Authentication/Login

The Simple Commons Uploader works with your normal password and BotPasswords.

There are three ways to authenticate:

  1. Interactively typing your credentials into the terminal, by running the program with the -i flag.
  2. Specifying your credentials via the --user and --pw flags.
  3. Using the Wgen setup utility by initially running the program with the --wgen flag. This method has the advantage of saving your credentials so you won't have to type them in the next time you use the program.

Behavior Details

The Simple Commons Uploader only uploads files in these file formats. Any other file types will be skippied.

Uploaded files will be named based on local folder name. For example, if your folder is called Fancy pigeons, contains jpgs of fancy pigeons, and today's date is 2018-01-01, then the resulting files will be named File:Fancy pigeons 1 2018-01-01.jpg, File:Fancy pigeons 2 2018-01-01.jpg, File:Fancy pigeons 3 2018-01-01.jpg, etc.
