Online demo: http://kolibridemo.learningequality.org/
Please note that Kolibri is alpha software - we do not recommend deploying it before later this year.
- Download the latest .pex release: https://github.com/learningequality/kolibri/releases
- Make the file executable:
chmod +x kolibri-v0.4.3.pex
- Run Kolibri
- Navigate with your browser to http://localhost:8080
Once installed, you can add content by logging in as an administrator and using one of the many available Channel IDs... these are just a few of them, we should be able to have more

Integration focus areas
From Kolibri: detect that Kiwix is installed, get an index of OpenZIM bundles and their metadata, and show links to the corresponding Kiwix URLs alongside the Kolibri channel list
From Kiwix: _____
A more general version of cross-linking to resources between the platforms. Possibly based either on a GUID or URI approach (which will likely be implemented in some form for cross-linking within Kolibri channels anyway), or through shared metadata/tagging schemes.
From Kiwix: Say you export a zim of a Kolibri channel which has an exercise, then we can use a placeholder with a deep link back to Kolibri.
From Kolibri: Instead of trying to fit in a Wikipedia zim, we can find a mechanism to add links as related contents. Like "Want to learn more about atomic fusion, read about it on Wikipedia".
Exporting Kolibri channels to Zim
Static contents like videos in Khan Academy or Sikana.tv can be exported as a static zim, given we use the meta data (topic trees) for navigation + some template parameters like title, logo and colors.
Importing from a Zim into a Kolibri channel
Importing a Zim into a channel in the Kolibri Content Curation server: Build a "sushi chef" script (using the ricecooker) to create a topic tree by traversing the content within the Zim. Depending on the format of the content in the zim, this might be a topic tree with videos, or in the Kolibri "HTML5 app" format, a set of pages that will be iframed. May not be very useful for something like all of Wikipedia, but can be useful for smaller Zim projects (or ones with a lot of rich media files).
- Benefit: Someone can start creating exercises and re-organizing for a specific educational purpose
- Benefit: Other channels can include new learning materials from already existing Zim resources
Aligning standards of exporting meta data to OPDS, such that Kiwix Zim resources and Kolibri Channels can be searched and browsed through the same interfaces. Collaborate with Tim Moody on this.
