Editing a page from Bash: copy-pasted token works, parsed token value from API doesnt

geoffreydebelie
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to login using the MediaWiki API. This works if I copy the token manually in the code every time again. Using the token from the variable DOESNT work, but copy pasting the same token into the TOKEN= assignment (into the source code) DOES work!

After that, I'm trying to edit a page. I have the same problem with the edit token. It cannot be read from the variable,  unless I copied the token manually to the variable in the source code :(

I know I'm almost there, but the tokens are getting in the way.

Why doesn't it work when I'm parsing the token from the API? When I copy-paste the same token into the source code directly it works..

The token looks the same to me! Is curl getting in the way here? I tried several things, like dropping the last \ from the token and then passing it to curl, but to no avail.

Output of the script when it doesn't work (reading the token from the TOKEN variable when parsing from the API):

You should use jq --raw-output.
