Read Wikipedia offline from small optimized dumps


Homepage: http://mokopedia.mister-muffin.de/
Package: no package yet
Tested on: -


This project aims to provide software to create and use small size wikipedia dumps for embedded Linux devices.

All Wikipedia pages will be stripped down html files compressed in a squashfs lzma image.

For more info visit the official website: http://mokopedia.mister-muffin.de/

Join our irc channel on freenode: #mokopedia.


It's the goal to make ALL the articles (except images) of Wikipedia (including formatting, linking, tables, formulas) fit on very little space.

Tests show that the German Wikipedia will be around 1.3GB and the English Wikipedia around 4GB so with flash storage prices dropping I will not bother removing certain articles - the dumps will include everything.

Some installation instructions can be found at http://rabenfrost.net/celtune/1-NEWS-WARNING-INFO (english) or http://seeseekey.net/blog/index.php?/archives/93-Mokopedia-einrichten.html (german).


[edit] Development status

Some people are already running the new mokopedia on their freerunners but i wont announce any official info until enwiki isnt done so up to now there are only dewiki and others that are possible to use.

I you are interested to get it running on you freerunner join our irc channel and i will explain the few steps you have to take.

In the near feature there will be ipkgs for everything.

[edit] To everybody that was familiar with the old implementation

There is no lighty needed anymore - i now implement the server in a simple python script.

Now we have FULLTEXT search - yeah you hear right. a fulltext search through 6.8 GB of dewiki is possible in mere 20 seconds on the neo1973.

Now there are also a lot of things already implemented as ipkg - only the server is left but will follow soon.

Current Status of my hacking efforts

It would be usefull to access an offline version of wikipedia (since there are people who do not want to pay for mobile internet) on the OpenMoko Platform. Here is a little tweak I did with the Stylus Demo by Mickey. Please submit more feature ideas!

Feature Ideas

  • list with
    • recently viewed articles

  • it will have no pictures - not enough room on any storage media
  • tex forumlas could be generated with a local LaTeX install but such may be too big for the phone
  • all wikipedia versions except the english one will fit on a 4GB SDCard (tested with the second largest wikipedia (german))
  • all articles in one big file and one index file for title searches OR a lot of small gzipped files which get unzipped on the fly
    • the gzipped/bzipped version will only take less then a gigabyte and this way even the english wikipedia should fit on a little microsd card
    • can anyone confirm if SDHC cards are working with the neo? if not we are capped to 2GB
