Anuta Upload Script

Anuta is a Python script allowing bulk upload of JPG images into Mediawiki. Right now it works pretty much as Nichalp's Upload Script, that is you first create upload.csv file in te directory with the images and then execute Anuta.

I'm developing it and testing under Linux. It might work on other operating systems as well, but I haven't tried them.

Script's name comes from Anuta – the smallest permanently inhabited isolated Polynesian island. An important concept in the Anutan society is "Aropa," an attitude of mutual giving and sharing, which translates most closely to "compassion."
