This is a place to document the development of an offline reader for Wikipedia. A first implementation will (probably) be done by Students of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences.
Discussions about matters for offline client as well as other implementations happen on the Wiki-offline-reader-l list.
Main Goals in a Nutshell
- Platform independant
- Fast on old hardware (Low RAM, CPU)
- Fulltext search
- Easily shipable on with content CD/DVD
A more in-depth specification will soon be available at Offline Reader/RequirementSpecs.
