Access Wikipedia offline, install it locally

Labels: , ,

wiki-taxi-logoThere is a lovely small program which makes it possible to access Wikipedia offline by installing it ;locally on your hard drive. WikiTaxi enables you to read, search, and browse Wikipedia offline. No Internet connection is needed, all pages are stored in a WikiTaxi database.

The installation of Wiki Taxi is not greater than 2 MB, but you’ve still outside the XML file that included the Wikipedia version of your choice is packed. To do so, in search of a so-called database dump, back-ups that the encyclopedia itself regularly makes. Depending on the language can copy such a large increase in size. The simple implementation of the English version is around 8 GB in size.
Overall :

  1. WikiTaxi is well documented, and it is fun to use.
  2. Most impressive feature is offline availability.
  3. External links do not work for reason is obvious however Internal linking is pretty well.
  4. You will miss Wikipedia images being offline.
