Wikipedia offline & more
Kiwix is an offline reader for Web content. It's especially intended to make Wikipedia available offline.
With Kiwix, you can enjoy Wikipedia on a boat, in the middle of nowhere... or in Jail.
Kiwix manages to do that by reading ZIM files, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data.
- Pure ZIM file reader
- Case and diacritics insensitive full text search engine
- Bookmarks & Notes
- ZIM based HTTP server
- PDF/HTML export
- Localized in more than 110 languages
- Search suggestions
- Tabs navigation
- Integrated content manager/downloader
Very useful project...
Wonderful, handy when going to locations without proper internet access.
Fantastic project. I am planning to create an appliance (hardware box) and make it available for schools in India.
liblzma update for Ubuntu 10.10 works. Installed kiwix on windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 maverick computers. Will pass along to school teachers I know. Thanks for great project.
Excellent Project. Especially, for sites that do not have Internet, poor countries and for children to learn
