Few infos for the developers...

Get the code

You can download the code of kiwix from our Git repository:

git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/kiwix/kiwix

Compile it

Other languages:

These are the instructions to download and compile Kiwix source code.

Get the code

The source code of Kiwix is available:

Before to continue, read the README file.

Dependencies

Kiwix relies on many open source libraries to compile. If it does not compile this probably means one of these libraries is not available. Check the configure log file. Some of the libraries you may miss:

Compilation

The compilation on UNIX (GNU/Linux) follows the GNU autotools procedure:

./autogen.sh
./configure
make

On Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, the compilation is far more complicated. Please have a look to the COMPILE file in Kiwix source directory.

Other

The Kiwix project provides also many additional tools. You may have a look to other code repositories here.

Kiwix uses translatewiki.net to translate its user interface.

Kiwix user interface is translated in more than 100 languages. This page explains how to proceed to improve these translations by adding/updating string translations.

The translation of strings does not need any special computer skills. Everybody can help! Translators do this using translatewiki.net, a really powerful online translation platform.

In order to improve Kiwix user interface translation in your native language:

  1. go to main page to sign up,
  2. follow the wizard to do a dozen translations and wait a few hours for the authorization,
  3. translate the strings of Kiwix which still need to be translated.

Wiki

We also need people to translate this wiki. You just need to create an account to translate one article or two!
