Revision as of 11:04, 19 October 2011

The openZIM project has two different targets:

  • the ZIM file format, an open, standardized file format to store Wiki content efficiently for offline usage
  • an open source implementation of the ZIM file format consisting of the zimlib, zimwriter and zimreader

The openZIM project is sponsored by Wikimedia CH and supported by the Wikimedia Foundation.

Currently we support MediaWiki and are working on having creation of ZIM files for all Wikimedia projects. See our mission statement and our roadmap for more information.

Cooperation with Wikimedia Foundation
2009-04-16
In a phone conference with Erik Möller, Brion Vibber and Tomasz Finc of the Wikimedia Foundation and Manuel the goals and deliverables of the openZIM project have been discussed. The WMF aims to include the ZIM file format into their dump process and that they will support openZIM to become the standard offline format for Wikimedia Wikis. Long-term goal is to have a "one-click" functionality inside MediaWiki to create ZIM files on demand. Some more interesting ideas and projects the Wikimedia Foundation is looking forward have been discussed, openZIM may become part of those as well.
openZIM project started
2009-02-22
The first developer meeting of openZIM just took place near Basel (CH). A team consisting Tommi Mäkitalo (Tntnet), Emmanuel Engelhart (Kiwix), Johannes Schauer (OpenMoko) and Manuel Schneider (Wikimedia CH) have been formed. openZIM will provide free documentation and implementation of the ZIM file format, an efficient storage for hypertext data, aimed at offline access to Wikipedia.

Current goal is to present the project at LinuxTag 2009 in Berlin and have a Wikipedia DVD with all german articles ready by then as a demonstration object.
