Botwiki is a project for the development, documentation, and testing of bots, particularly bots that perform work related to wikis, especially those running on the [[mediawiki:|mediawiki:]] platform. Originally Botwiki was limited to the Python Wikipedia Bot, commonly known as Pywikipediabot, PyBot, or PWB. It now covers all programming languages and bot frameworks.
In 2011, after several years of stagnation, Botwiki began a major overhaul of its content.
Only free images, media and software are allowed. Fair use is explicitly forbidden; even though the servers are located in the United States, Botwiki is legally owned by an Italian citizen and as such the whole project should follow both Italian and US laws.
