Kiwix for Android
New Web site
We need to replace the current web site by a more simple and fancy one. The current one is too complicated for the average customer and mix informations for devs and end users. In addition it does not provide some features which are essentials like a simple an intuitive way to search over the ZIM library or a simple way to give a feedback (bug report or feature request). So there is a lot of improvement potential in both content and visuals.
This new one should be based on Mediawiki and we already have a design. The wiki part, like we know it, would be still accessible but not push on the front of the Web site. So we need someone we good PHP & Web languages knowledges to do that.
ZIM Autobuild (assigned)
Deaddrops & Geocaching (Assigned)
We need a solution to test automatically Kiwix. We have currently nothing... so we start from scratch.!
Create a publication platform, a Web site online similar to itunes which would provide the list of available contents to download in ZIM, EPUB, .... also offer to see the book before downloading it.
- Wants to know more...
- Add support of EPUB in Kiwix
Make a proof of concept of a ZIM file providing a map using OSM data and a tool like openLayer.
Improve P2P support
- Fix Mirrorbrain to integrate torrent links in mirrorbrain
- Fix Mirrorbrain to support fallback torrent trackers in .torrent files
- Add a way to exchange library and content on a local network (for example, using "bonjour" & Bittorrent DHT)
Create an ambassador program. Ambassadors would be special people especially aware about Kiwix and able to help others:
- Spread contents
- Makes conferences
- Makes advertisement
- Local representative
To do that, we should develop a set of tools:
- Advertisement Package
- Ambassador program definition
- Map base on Ushahidi to locate them
Perhaps a nice kit would help. You know, like for organizing Linux installation parties or Mozilla's event kits etc., that encourages people, and provides step-by-step guidance and advice, to go and install Kiwix with a relevant offline Wikipedia file in their local no-Internet (or restricted/expensive Internet) school, college, community center, etc.
Would anyone be interested in working on that? WMF can contribute funding for some materials -- a Kiwix quick-start guide or cheatsheet, stickers, T-shirts.  http://ladypine.org/installfest.html, http://www.wikihow.com/Arrange-Linux-Install-Party  https://wiki.mozilla.org/Webmaker/Teach/WebmakingResources
