Kiwix is a software suite allowing you to enjoy a lot of different content offline, without any access to Internet. But before using Kiwix, you need to download it in accordance to your future usage and your operating system. Then, you will have to choose the content of your wishes via the Kiwix library or from here.

Microsoft Windows

Kiwix Desktop

Kiwix Desktop is a full featured desktop application. Download it and it will be directly usable after unzipping the file. It is a 64-bit application and supports Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later.

Kiwix JS

Kiwix JS is a light & highly portable application focusing on mobile devices. You can install it from the Microsoft app store or download directly the installer file. Kiwix JS supports Windows 10 on any device: x64, x86 and ARM. ZIM archives can be downloaded in the app.

We also provide through the Microsoft Store a few dedicated apps:

Kiwix Serve

Kiwix Serve is our HTTP daemon to serve ZIM files. It is part of the Kiwix tools suite, you can download it here, unzip the files and directly start it. More infos...

Apple Mac OS X

Kiwix for Apple Mac OS X is provided as DMG file. You simply need to download it, mount the DMG image and copy/install Kiwix to the Applications folder. So far, there is no portable (directly usable on a USB flash drive for example) version of Kiwix for Apple Mac OS X.

Android

Kiwix for Android is a version of Kiwix for all Android based mobile devices. It provides an easy way to enjoy Wikipedia and other ZIM files on all Android4+ devices. This app has a perfect Android look&feel and is extremely fast. Give it a try on Play Store or download directly the APK file.

Kiwix for Android is also available in alternative app stores like:

iOS

Kiwix for iOS is a new version of Kiwix. It provides an easy way to enjoy Wikipedia and other ZIM files on iPhone, iPad and all iOS8+ devices. This app has a perfect iOS look&feel and is extremely fast. Give it a try on iOS App store.

You first download the Kiwix program from the iTunes App Store to your device and then download the ZIM data files of your choice (for example: Wikipedia or Wikiquote).

You can download the ZIM file (or files) directly using the Kiwix App, but this may take a long time and is liable to errors. A faster and more reliable method is to use a computer to download the ZIM file from this web site then transfer the ZIM file to your iOS device using iTunes File Sharing.

GNU/Linux

Kiwix for GNU/Linux is a standalone application provided for the x86 architectures:

Unpack the downloaded file and run the "kiwix" program. If you have a 64 bits x86 system and try to run the 32 bits version of Kiwix, check that you have the multi arch support installed on your computer.

We also provide a precompiled version of kiwix-serve and other Kiwix console tools for ARM CPUs. You may download it here.

A few GNU/Linux distributions also provide packages of Kiwix:

Source Code

Kiwix can run on almost every operating system. But, we don't provide pre-compiled binaries for all of them. If you are interested in running Kiwix on an operating system for which we don't provide binaries, you may download Kiwix source code and compile Kiwix on your own.
