html2wiki - convert HTML into wiki markup


html2wiki [options] [file]

Commonly used options:

--dialect=dialect Dialect name, e.g. "MediaWiki" (required unless
the WCDIALECT environment variable is used)
--encoding=encoding Source encoding (default is 'utf-8')
--base-uri=uri Base URI for relative links
--wiki-uri=uri URI fragment for wiki links
--wrap-in-html Wrap input in <html> and </html> (enabled by default).
Use --no-wrap-in-html to disable.
--escape-entities Escape HTML entities within text elements (enabled by
default). Use --no-escape-entities to disable.

--list List installed dialects and exit
--options List all recognized options (except for negations
such as --no-wrap-in-html)
--help Show this message and exit

Additional options, including those corresponding to dialect
attributes, are also supported. Consult the html2wiki man page for


html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki --encoding iso-8859-1 \
--base-uri http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ \
--wiki-uri http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ \
input.html > output.wiki


"html2wiki" is a command-line interface to HTML::WikiConverter, which it uses to convert
HTML to wiki markup.


If the dialect you provide in "--dialect" is not installed on your system (e.g. if you
specify "MediaWiki" but have not installed its dialect module,
HTML::WikiConverter::MediaWiki) a fatal error will be issued. Use "html2wiki --list" to
list all available dialects on your system. Additional dialects may be downloaded from the


Correspondence of options and attributes
Each of the options accepted by "html2wiki" corresponds to an HTML::WikiConverter
attribute. Commonly used options described in "html2wiki --help" therefore correspond to
attributes discussed in "ATTRIBUTES" in HTML::WikiConverter. That section also contains
other attributes that may be used as "html2wiki" command-line options.

Mapping an attribute name to an option name
While related, option names are not identical to their corresponding attribute names. The
only difference is that attribute names use underscores to separate words while option
names use hyphens. For example, the "base_uri" attribute corresponds to the "--base-uri"
command-line option.

Additional options defined in dialect modules
Individual dialects may define their own attributes, and therefore make available their
own command-line options to "html2wiki", in addition to the ones defined by
"HTML::WikiConverter". The same rules described above apply for converting between these
attribute names and their corresponding command-line option names. For example, Markdown
supports an "unordered_list_style" attribute that takes a string value. To use this
attribute on the command line, one would use the "--unordered-list-style" option. Consult
individual dialect man pages for a list of supported attributes.

Options that are enabled by default
Attributes that take boolean values may be enabled by default. The "wrap_in_html"
attribute is one such example. Because of this, "html2wiki" will effectively behave by
default as if "--wrap-in-html" had been specified in every invocation. If this is not
desired, the option name may be prefixed with "no-" to disable the option, as in

Options that take multiple values
Some attributes (eg, "wiki_uri" and "strip_tags") accept an array of values. To
accommodate this in "html2wiki", such options can be specified more than once on the
command line. For example, to specify that only comment and script elements should be
stripped from HTML:

% html2wiki --strip-tags ~comment --strip-tags script ...


Input is taken from STDIN, so you may pipe the output from another program into
"html2wiki". For example:

curl http://example.com/input.html | html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki

You may also specify a file to read HTML from:

html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki input.html

Output is sent to STDOUT, though you may redirect it on the command line:

html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki input.html > output.wiki

Or you may pipe it into another program:

html2wiki --dialect MediaWiki input.html | less
