New extension
:Hi, We deal with millions of entries (both articles and images). There is no efficient way to update this correctly ''day-by-day'', the amount of data is simply too huge. Our plan is to release a new version one time a month (and this is already running for smaller projects) and to provide incremental update (should be release next year).

Hi Kiwix Team,
Thank you,
Dan Ostermayer
 
:Dear Dan, thank you for pointing to your request. I'll have a look in detail to it. But, I have been working on offline solution since almost 10 years and I'm sure that using the Mediawiki XML export is not the easiest way to display articles offline. The reason is that this is far more complicated to have an alternative Wikitext parser than just render HTML, even if this HTML is packed in a ZIM file. For the rest I'll ask questions about your requirements on ''meta''... But it looks like that what you try to do is simply the same than Kiwix, so I wonder why we were not in touch before. Re-creating a whole solution ecosystem just because the fulltext search engine is not available on Android or because there is no iOS app. sounds a little bit short as explanation (fulltext search engine might be implemented within a week and an iOS app within a month).
