Okawix for PC soon to work with ZIM

Filed under: okawix — Matthieu @ 19:12

We’re currently working at the integration of the ZIM (fr) file format in our program Okawix, the off-line Wikipedia reader developed by the web company Linterweb. It should be available pretty soon, probably in a few weeks from now.

Well, if you would like to learn more about Okawix, we encourage you to visit and read our blog, especially the article “Introduction to Okawix“. And, if you feel like leaving us a comment under any article of the blog, we’ll be of course very happy to read it!

Enjoy your time with Okawix!

Yours sincerely , Matthieu.

Linterweb is a web company that, for now several years, has been developing various Wikipedia oriented programs, including:

  • Wikiwix, a semantic web search engine that gives only results out of the databases of the Wikimedia Foundation projects; My Wikiwix, your own search engine for your own website;, a mobile version of Wikiwix;
  • Okawix, the offline Wikipedia browser free of copyrights and free of charge that allows you to read offline the articles of the various Wikimedia Foundation projects, as well as archives of your own website;
  • a DVD of around 2000 articles from the English speaking Wikipedia; a USB flash drive that contains the version 0.7 of the English speaking Wikipedia;
  • a program that archives the external web pages of the Wikipedia articles (that is, the web pages outside Wikipedia but linked from a Wikipedia article), so that their content remains available and that those external links don’t get broken; this program is used automatically, in particular, for all external links of the French speaking Wikipedia.

  1. Is this still under active development? I am concerned it has been abandoned.
