Overview

Kiwix is an offline reader for content from Wikipedia, TED Talks, Stackexchange, and many other sources.

[To use this app you MUST download, for free, an archive with your chosen content, see below.] Kiwix is an offline reader for content from Wikipedia, Project Gutenberg, TED Talks, Wikivoyage, Stackexchange, etc. It makes knowledge available to people with limited or no Internet access, or to anyone who wants to have easy offline access to a vast repository of information. The software as well as the content is free for anyone to use. You can get the whole of Wikipedia, and hundreds of other resources, on your device to use completely offline in your own language. You can have amazing reference tools at your fingertips wherever you are. Just download your chosen archive and store it on your device (see instructions from About page of app). Great for travelling, or any place where access to the Internet is difficult or expensive! Kiwix is often faster than Wikipedia for quick consultation. This app reads a larger offline file that you can download to your device. You must download the archive separately (see About tab in the app for instructions). Offline files are available for Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikivoyage, Wikimedicine, Wikimaths, TED Talks, Project Gutenberg, and hundreds of other resources, in all the available Wikipedia languages. This extension is very handy, always a click away in your browser. If you would like a packaged version of Kiwix JS, we make a separate Electron app for Linux and Windows based on this codebase with some additional features. It runs independently of the browser - get more info at https://kiwix.github.io/kiwix-js-pwa/app. There are also packaged versions which include the latest WikiMed (Medical Wikipedia), and Wikivoyage. If you are interested in the full range of Kiwix apps, including for iOS and Android, please visit https://www.kiwix.org.
