Description
Did you ever want to take Wikipedia with you while you are offline? Call on WikiTaxi: It is a portable application that delivers the Wikipedia of your choice to wherever you go.
WikiTaxi enables you to read, search, and browse Wikipedia offline. No Internet connection is needed, all pages are stored in a WikiTaxi database. Because Wikipedia is constantly growing, WikiTaxi uses compression to make sure that the database stays as small as possible.

WikiTaxi is multilingual, so you can use it for different language Wikipedias (see screenshots). It also works well with the Wiktionary and WikiQuote. You can save multiple Wikis to disk and use all of them with WikiTaxi.

WikiTaxi is up to date. It uses the original Wikipedia database dumps, which are usually updated every few weeks. If you feel that your offline Wikipedia is getting too old, you can download a more recent version or just copy it from a friend.

What´s New
  • Internationalize names of parser variables and functions. 30 languages are supported, which is most of the Wikipedias with +100000 articles.
  • Cascading Style Sheets are now loaded per Wiki site. Most Wikipedia CSS files are included.
  • New tag extension.
  • General improvements for tag extensions, especially where they conflicted with other Wiki syntax.
  • Add quite a number of parser variables and functions.
  • Recognize some more HTML tags.
  • Template expansion was still not working quite right with some pages.
  • Fix a few problems with math calculations.
  • Better Table of Contents generation.
  • Many more minor bug fixes and improvements.

Before you can actually use WikiTaxi, you must download your Wikipedia from the Internet and import it into a WikiTaxi database. This is necessary for offline browsing, and it is not difficult at all.

Download the Wiki Backup
From the many Wikipedia backups available, you need to download just one file, the so-called XML dump. Here are some direct links to the more popular:
To start downloading, follow one of the links above, pick your Wiki and backup date (latest is usually best), and look out for the file named:
pages-articles.xml.bz2
Download this file to your local hard disk. It contains all articles, templates, image descriptions, and primary meta-pages of a Wiki. Do not bother with any other files, WikiTaxi does not know how to handle them.

WikiTaxi allows you to share your Wikipedia, so you do not have to download it yourself. You can copy from a friend, a teacher, or your boss. If you can copy to save the download, you can also save the database import if you copy the WikiTaxi database instead!

Import the XML dump into a WikiTaxi database
After the download has finished, run WikiTaxi_Importer.exe to extract the Wiki articles from the XML dump file to a WikiTaxi database. Depending on the size of your Wikipedia, this may take a bit of time, but you have to do it once only.

Within the WikiTaxi importer, enter or browse for the XML dump file you just downloaded and the database file you want it to create. Then click the "Import Now!" button and wait until the import is finished.
