Offline Reader

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


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.

Relevant Mailinglists[edit]

Discussions about matters for offline client as well as other implementations happen on the Wiki-offline-reader-l list.

Main Goals in a Nutshell[edit]

  • 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.
