Source Code / Current Development

As openZIM provides platform independant tools and libraries, the easiest way to use it is to check out the code directly from our SVN - Get the source code from Subversion.

If you are looking for binaries, you might rather be interested in reader applications instead. The openZIM libraries and tools are not meant for end-users but for software developers which integrate them into reader applications or export tools.

svn co zim

See more detailed information for checking out and updating code on our Subversion page.


If you compile the software from source you need the following libraries installed:

  • cxxtools (version 2.0)
  • tntdb (for zimwriter) (release 1.1)
  • tntnet (for zimreader) (release 2.0)
  • libxz-dev
  • autoconf
  • automake
  • libtool
