Abstract ملخص

What if you want to showcase Wikipedia (or WikiQuote, or the Wiktionary) in a place where there is no to little internet connectivity? The usual answer would be to install Kiwix on your phone or computer and cram people around it. But what if you could easily download all the contents you want, install them on a small Raspberry Pi, and create a local network so that 30 people can use it at once? What if you could even use this to do offline editing workshops?

We'll show how the Kiwix hotspot works, where to find it, and how to install your own selection on it.

What will attendees take away from this session? ماذا سيستفيد الحضور من هذه الجلسة؟
  1. Know which contents are available offline (wikipedia, but other Arabic contents, as well as WikiFundi, for offline editing);
  2. Know how to build their own hotspot;
  3. Know how to connect and use Kiwix.
Will you attend WikiArabia if your submission is not accepted? هل ستحضر لويكي عربية إذا لم يتم قبول مداخلتك؟
