~~ 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?
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. http://requestafeature.kiwix.org 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)

- 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 https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3170499&group_id=175508&atid=873518 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.

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
Thanks for your dev effort.
How about developing a Wikitaxi-like importer tool ( http://wikitaxi.org/delphi/doku.php/products/wikitaxi/index )? 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.
Good luck and all the best.
