How is mwhtmldumper.js better or faster than using the old way of dumping?

    Hi,
    I am curious how and why mwhtmldumper.js is the preferred way to go.

    Is it faster?

    Thanks for clarifying

     
    • Hi,

      I have renamed the tool "mwoffliner". Yes, mwoffliner is a lot easier/faster to use than creating a local mirror and them dumping from the console using the PHP HTMLDumper extension.

    Hi Emmanuel,

    could you maybe give a small example how I would use mwoffline to actually dump pages from a wikipedia dump?

    Are there any issues or incompatibilities compared to the old way of rendering the html pages?

    Best,
    Bastian

      Both mwoffliner and zimwriterfs have now a README file. mwoffliner has nothing to do with XML/SQL dumps provided at download.wikimedia.org

      New generated ZIM files still have a few "problems" (will be fixed ASAP).
      Javascript dependencies are not correctly downloaded
      No TOC
      Not category pages
      Problems with audio/video datei
      * Still a few limitations du to some extensions (mostly on projects like Wikisource)
