I suppose you will need something like a "wiki bot".

A possible choice is "mvs" (i installed via ubuntu's package manager)


It has "cvs" like interface and a typical session is:

#login, -w seems critical
mvs login -v -d oeis.org -u 'Georgi Guninski' -p 'pass' -w 'w/index.php'

#fetches a copy
mvs update 'User:Georgi Guninski'.wiki  

# vim vs emacs editing
vim 'User:Georgi Guninski'.wiki 

#commit, result diff at http://oeis.org/w/index.php?title=User:Georgi_Guninski&curid=195099&diff=1540449&oldid=1465951
mvs commit -m "testing wiki bot - mvs" User\:Georgi\ Guninski.wiki #uploads changes
