~~ Is there a ZIM file for the entire English Wikipedia? I have the WP1 +30000, yet would prefer the entire version, even if the file is large and the articles haven't been vetted. AnAnthro 06:35, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi, due to a lack of Hardware ressource we are not able to prepare such a ZIM file currently. Maybe in the future... Kelson 07:46, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
How about a version without images?
The future is finally here, we have the whole en.wikipedia text only available for download. Stephenwanjau 20:42, 11 May 2012 (CEST)

I would like to see a Dutch version, covering all the NL entries of Wikipedia. Any chance this might happen?

Please open a feature request. This can be done. Kelson 15:57, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I see you are not able to create a ZIM file from the entire english wikipedia. Can you provide a tutorial on dumping wikipedia content to ZIM files? This would open the path for enthusiasts to create and share their own dumps and we would see the english dump soon. --Klaufir 06:07, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

They are a stub of documentation there. Kelson 09:11, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Where is the newer arabic wikipedia?

I want newer wikipedia than this in your site now it is old, can you creat newer one soon please>


and I hope your program to be good in search not like okawix which is very very very bad searchin just about 40% of results at least in arabic wikipedia .zeno

is you program better than okawix in searching tell me please,



You may check the search engine online here. Your feedback is really welcome.

This is the last ZIM file, do you mean this file is too old?

Kelson 07:21, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

I have checked the searching although the library is Persian not Arabic ( but both in the sam alphabe)

The Arabic one is [1]

It seems very good searching like clucene > isnot it?

And yes I means that version is old one year ago 72009 update 32010

When the ar wikipedia is less articles

I want one newer now the articles are 138 000 and much more words pre article> Can you compile one??

Regards, Wish you luck.

Oooops sorry for the error with Farsi. Great to heard that the search engine works well in arabic. This is done with Xapian... but we are also working to add a clucene backend. I have open a feature request for the new WP ZIM in Arabic here I do not know how much time I will need (I have also many other ZIM to do)... but I guess this should be done in a few week. Emmanuel

Good news to hear you workin to add clucene it is ultimat searching engine,and to adding new zim files.

THank you .

Wikitaxi Importer-like Tool

Hi there:

Thanks for your dev effort.

How about developing a Wikitaxi-like importer tool ( )? This way, the user would always be able to have/download the latest dump available over at wikipedia and thus convert it for use with Kiwix. Is developing such a tool that much hard to achieve? I guess you could set up an agreement with Wikitaxi's developer for getting programming help from him so as to get know how to do this. Sorry if my suggestion sounds naive - actually it seems his Wikitaxi project is closed source, isn't it? And thus he might not be willing to somehow share pieces of code that could in a way be used for developing a new tool by a third party.

Kind regards from Brazil.

Hi Mchal. We won't do that. Kiwix renders HTML and do not have an integrated wiki render engine. We think rendering localy the wiki code is not the good approach. You are right, wikitaxi is closed source and also not portable. We work either to provide to download what you need full Wiki ZIM files. This should comes during 2012. Thx for your feedback and patience. Regard Kelson 12:40, 12 November 2011 (CET)
Hi, Kelson.
Ok, thanks. In fact, your whole setup is just fine as it is. I really appreciate your dev efforts - you offer an excellent wiki reader to users out there, which, by the way, I'll recommend to them whenever possible. My gratitude. Good luck and all the best.

CHP.EXE Reported as Malware

Hi, Kelson:

Windows Defender reports that the file indicated above is malware. Also, please, see this online virus scan report, here:

It's a bit worrisome such reports, you know...

Thanks anyway.


Hi, chp.exe ist not a malware so this is an error of Windows Defender. This is a normal open source program: So you can ignore the warning and allow it running. But this is a problem that Windows Defender reports an error, I'm agree. We are working to avoid the usage of chp.exe in next version which will be released in a few weeks. You may follow this bug report Kelson 17:20, 14 November 2011 (CET)


OK, thanks for your reassuring reply.

Open Specific Article on Kiwix Launch

Is it possible to open Kiwix and specify (on the command line) what article to load? We are investigating using Kiwix for an embedded help system, but for that to be context sensitive, the user would click a button in another program and that would cause the other program to launch Kiwix, and also tell Kiwix to load the contextually relevant page. Joeclarkia 18:18, 29 March 2012 (CEST)

I found the SourceForge Tracker and found ticket 3484628. It has basically the same request. Joeclarkia 21:56, 29 March 2012 (CEST)
Hi, just wanted to tell you that this is now implemented. More details at: Kelson 13:05, 1 April 2012 (CEST)
