Description:

This simple programs display the text-only wikipedia compressed dumps, currently available at http://download.wikimedia.org/backup-index.html, generally named something like pages-articles.xml.bz2.

It's fairly useable now although lots of rendering issues occurs

Features includes a Qt viewer with basic text markup, following links, ability to read directly on the .bz2 compressed file (altough some index creations step is needed on first run), tab-like list of articles with load-in-the-background by default, a simple but useful keyword search, very light source-code, optional latex rendering.

The code requires PyQt4

Older versions has been tested on Fedora Core 4 and Kubuntu with PyQt4.1 (Python 2.4, Qt 4.2), and Ubuntu Gutsy.

See included README

Note that the development tree is now hosted on launchpad. See https://launchpad.net/wikipediadumpreader/

Any comment is welcome.




Changelog:

Updated to 0.2.10:
- Use a new indexing scheme for the entrylist - articles load faster now
- Upgrade path for old indexing scheme
- Utf8 fixes for non-ascii pathnames
- experimental RPM package - feedback welcome at the project website : https://launchpad.net/wikipediadumpreader

Built a rough Ubuntu package, to ease installation for unexperienced users running Ubuntu Gutsy or Hardy

There is a typo in the version 0.2.8 in the file “mathexp.py” on line 33: there is “self.textvc = "texvc"” (texTvc) where it should be “self.texvc = "texvc"”.

Any suggestion which dump to download at the wikimedia site? These xml dumps seems to be special interest versions only with 3-8 MB in size.

Yes, the pages-*. But there are several pages-* for several wikis with different sizes and different content. ;) Or maybe I'm blind.

Hi,
Thanks for your support.
Sadly, i have no real plans except of occasional maintenance, or integrating contributor's help.
WikipediaDumpReader should work with any PyQt4 version from 4.1, including 4.5. If you meant "Webkit" version, i don't have any plans for that - at least until 4.5 is default in some LTS release. I take compatibility very seriously as a lot of my users are not bleeding-edge upgraders ;-)

"experimental RPM package - feedback welcome at the project website : https://launchpad.net/wikipediadumpreader"

fantastic news if this means what i think it means, i.e. that opensuse/mandriva/fedora users will be able to easily install your fantastic program.

thanks

hi in the tar.bz2 file is no source. just a bunch of executable files and some sources for parts needed by the programm but no configure or make file to get this software installed or packaged.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
