This script allows you to specify a range of Wikipedia revisions for use with the History Flow visualization.
The tools chops Wikipedia edit histories in chronological chunks of 100 edits. The tool will provide links to those chunks, which can then be used in History Flow.
Here's how to use the tool:
Input a Wikipedia URL and click submit
Wait until the chronologically ordered table with 'History Flow export links' is returned. Each link represents a chunk of 100 edits.
Open History Flow, go to file > MediaWiki article. You will be presented with two input fields: "Export URL" and "Article Title". In the former you fill in one of the "history flow export links" from the table just obtained. In the latter you can fill in the Article's title. Click ok.
Repeat the last step for each chunk of edit history you are interested in.

This script unfortunately does not work on all language versions of Wikipedia.
