The Kiwix '''volunteers program''' offers motivated and talented people ways to work for Kiwix during a limited time. Contributors can speak English, French, or German. Technical volunteers should know JavaScript, CSS, or other web languages, or C++.
<translate>== Tasks ==<!--T:2--></translate>
=== [[phpzim]] (assignedre) =-Introduce ZIM support in MediaWiki Book creator/OCG] ==
<translate><!--T:3-->[ MediaWiki] is the wiki engine behind [ Wikipedia], all [ Wikimedia projects] and thousands other Web sites. It's a cutting edge free software providing highly featured web sites that anybody can edit. MediaWiki hosted content can be made available for offline usage through the [ Collection extension] (written in PHP). The Collection extension allows to easily create collection/selection of articles: so called books ; here is [ Special:Book how it works on the English Wikipedia]. Once created, books can be exported in PDF format. The PDF exporting backend itself is not provided by the Collection extension, it's done with a JavaScript based solution called [ OCG]. OCG is a NodeJS daemon able to transform a book definition in a PDF and it should be able to do the same in the ZIM format. The [ ZIM format] allows to store web pages (with images, videos, etc...) in one extremely compressed file. These pages are then available to read on most computers with a reader like [ Kiwix]. A [Wikivoyage stub of solution]has already been written and the [ MWOffline] ===is already functional. This [ task] is mostly about merging them.</translate>
=== [[Project Gutenberg]] === === [[TED]] (assigned) === === [[iOS|Kiwix for iOS]] === === [[ZIM Autobuildphpzim]] (assigned) ===
== Promotional video (assigned) == Look [[Deaddrops & GeocachingVideo|here]] (Assigned) ===for more details.
<translate>=== Testing platform ===<!--T:4-->We need a solution to test automatically Kiwix. We have currently nothing... so we start from scratch.!</translate>
<translate>=== Wikipublish ===<!--T:5--></translate>
<translate><!--T:6-->Create a publication platform, a Web site online similar to itunes iTunes which would provide the list of available contents to download in ZIM, EPUB, .... also offer to see the book before downloading it.</translate>
<translate><!--T:7-->* [ Wants Want to know more...]
* Add support of EPUB in Kiwix
<translate>=== OSM ===<!--T:8-->
Make a proof of concept of a ZIM file providing a map using OSM data and a tool like [ openLayer].
<translate>=== Improve P2P support ===<!--T:9-->
* 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 BitTorrent DHT)</translate>
=== [[Linux Packaging project]] (assigned) ===
<translate>=== Ambassador Program ===<!--T:10-->
Create an '''ambassador program'''. '''Ambassadors''' would be special people especially aware about Kiwix and able to help others:
* Spread contents
* Makes Make conferences* Makes Make 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
<translate>==== Starter Kit (Assigned) ====<!--T:11-->
Perhaps a nice kit would help. You know, like for organizing Linux installation parties[1] or Mozilla's event kits[2] 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.
<translate>== Video ==<!--T:12-->It would be great to have a video (screencast) presenting the software with its most important featurefeatures.
Here is a proposition:
* Presentation slide of the video with slide and authors
* special features: fullscreen, switch language, font bigger/smaller, random page, etc.
* Finish (present the ZIM availables and how to download them)
