Download a Wikipedia category

    Hi! I want to download not the whole wikipedia, but just a category, but in several languages, keeping enabled all the different types of hyperlinks, images, tables etc. so that I can edit the articles, saving the changes, and eventually print it. I'd like to create a file resembling an ebook, where I could see the bookmarks of all the subcategories.
    Can this be done with either Wikitaxi or Kiwix ? If not, what would be the best alternative?

    Thank you in advance.

      Hi,

      For now this is not easily possible to get a ZIM file for only a category.
      Kiwix is about readonly copy, so not modifiable.
      Kiwix allows to set bookmarks.
      I don't know Wikitaxi in detail.

      Regards
      Emmanuel

    There is a Task (assigned) to ZIM Autobuild
    http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/ZIM_Autobuild
    which will eventually include
    - able to build full or partial (only a selection of articles) ZIM files of WMF projects
    - able to tweak the content by removing/modifying categories, templates, articles

      Yes, this still needs to be done.

    And there are currently 12 subject indexes on Wikipedia. They are
    -General reference
    -Culture and the arts
    -Geography and places
    -Health and fitness
    -History and events
    -Mathematics and logic
    -Natural and physical sciences
    -People and self
    -Philosophy and thinking
    -Religion and belief systems
    -Society and social sciences
    -Technology and applied sciences

    I can see how different people might value them differently, if that ever becomes a possibility.

      If you are able to give a list of article title for each of them, I would be able to generate the corresponding ZIM files.

        I don't have words to appreciate your effort.
        I am using Wikipedia on My android with complete images which was only possible because of you.

        I want to contribute, in any way possible. There should atleast be a donation button.

        Thumbs up.
        I am waiting for Yosemite version of KIWIX

          Kiwix is mostly supported by Wikimedia Switzlerland. Every penny is welcomed: https://www.wikimedia.ch/donate/how-donate
